Vietnam Money and Currency
Currency


Vietnam currency issued by the Vietnam State Bank is the Dong (VND). Vietnamese use both coins and paper notes. But as Vietnam is currently changing its money system, there exists parallel two different money systems (old and new) which can cause confusion.

 Coins include VND 5,000; 2,000; 1,000; 500 and 200. These values have paper note equivalences.

 The following values: VND 500,000; 200,000; 100,000; 50,000; 20,000; 10,000. exist both in the new polymer form and the old normal paper notes.

 Cheques with value as Vietnamese dong include: VND 1,000,000 and 500,000.


Exchange rates
In general, 1 USD is approximately 20,900VND and 1 EUR approximates 29,700VND

You can exchange your money at the airport before leaving, or at banks and official exchange centers in Vietnam. It is strongly recommended that you do not exchange money in the black market.

Method of payment

Direct payment of cash is most popular in Vietnam. Small shops, restaurants and markets usually do not accept any other payment.


Major credit cards (such as Visa, Master Charge and to some extent American Express) are increasingly being used, especially in big cities and tourist places, but only in restaurants, hotels or big shopping malls with a transactional fee (3%-5%).
Traveler’s cheques are an easy method of carrying money around, and can be cashed at major banks (but not small banks in small towns).


ATM machines
For those hesitant to carry a large amount of cash around, ATMs (automatic teller machines) have become increasingly popular in Vietnam (mostly in cities) and have attracted many foreign visitors.

Most banks offer this service and the registration for an account is simple and fast. All ATMs are locally interconnected. However, ATMs only give in VND.

Banking hours
The hours may differ from bank to bank. Generally banks open from Monday to Friday: 8:00 – 11:30 and 1:00 to 4:00. Some large banks also open through lunch or on Saturday mornings. Banks are closed on public holidays.

Two tier pricing system
In many places in Vietnam, foreigners and visitors still have to pay a much higher fee for entrance or services. However this system is slowly changing as prices are being standardized.

Dear Johny
we are back in Hanoi and we wanted to thank you so much for the good service!
It was very nice that someone showed us the way to our cabin on the way to Lao cai and that someone was waiting for us this early morning to bring us to our hotel. The trip with the train was also good.
We will certainly recommend you to all of our friends and family if they want to travel in Vietnam.
Best regards,
Nienke Adema
I would recommend your service 100% to any of my friends, family or colleagues.

I would recommend your service 100% to any of my friends, family or colleagues.
We have arrived home safely after a wonderful trip to Vietnam and Hong Kong
 We loved your country and all the people are so wonderful and friendly.
 Your service made our trip so easy. All the bookings were perfect, the drivers were always early to pick us up and you always responded so quickly to my phone calls and emails (even though you were in the middle of wedding celebrations).
 I would recommend your service 100% to any of my friends, family or colleagues.
 I felt great relief to know that I had someone local to call on while I was in Vietnam.
 I hope all went well with your wedding celebrations with your husband’s family and I hope to use your service again sometime in the future.
 I also recommended you to a family I met while staying at the Victoria Hotel in Hoi An. The husband’s name was Kevin and they were originally from England but now live in Sydney. They had a little girl called Bella and wanted to go to Ha Long Bay and also Sapa. Did they call you?
 
 Best wishes to you and the team at Vietnam tours.
 Kind regards, Suzanne
I just wanted to thank you again for all the lovely, courteous, efficient help you gave us when we visited Vietnam. My only regret is not staying in Hue as there was so much to do there. Hoi An was lovely but 5 nights there too much!

Hi Ms Annie
 I just wanted to thank you again for all the lovely, courteous, efficient help you gave us when we visited Vietnam. My only regret is not staying in Hue as there was so much to do there. Hoi An was lovely but 5 nights there too much! Sue Richardson, my friend, also told me last night on the phone how helpful you were to her when she needed some help.
 I have given your email address to my sister, Maryrose Mooney, and I hope she makes contact.
 I told her to put together her dates and requests ie flights/hotels/transfers/trains and send to you for a quote.
 Time Hotel was lovely and very central. I have told my sister to ask for windows in her hotel rooms and Room 402 was a lovely room.
 I hope she listens to my suggestions/ideas and makes contact
 
 Kind regards
