    Some month ago I only got those, each time I went to an atm.
    Now?
    It looks as if they vanished:confused:

    Does someone have an explanation?

    I don't use the atms much but I get them sometimes when I change money... I wonder if the 100,000 notes are similar to the new 2,000 notes in that they are used quite often for temple ceremonies... try going and buying 2000 kip notes... even if you buy them with kip you have to pay more than 2000 kip to get each 2000 kip note... I am talking about the crisp new notes... don't know if that has anything to do with the larger notes though...

    I get the 100,000 KIP notes occasionally while changing money. About the 2000 KIP notes I can get them if I specifically request it at the bank for no extra charge. They don't always have them though.

    ANZ atms seem to hand them out pretty frequently....

    Agree with you but mostly on the Lanexang avenue, not so often in the other ANZ atm's.

    I got some yesterday again.
