It depends on what you are going to do. If you explore on your own, I have yet to find a taxi, bus, tram or train that takes travellers cheques in USD.

The tiny shops almost never take them.

Also, if you do find a store that will take them, the exchange rate won't be very good. Might as well use your AMEX card.

I always bring local currency. The amount depends on what we are doing.
