Vietnam Currency

Money

The official currency is the Dông (VND), issued in denominations of 500; 1,000; 2,000; 5,000; 10,000; etc. There are no smaller denominations. Currency can be exchanged at banks, bureaux de change, hotels and on the black market, though only US dollars are easily exchanged outside of major cities. Visa, MasterCard and American Express are becoming more widely acceptable, particularly in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City and all major tourist centres. US currency is accepted by many hotels in tourist centres and is useful as a back-up, but notes must be relatively new and unmarked. Up to two million dông can be withdrawn from ATMs at a time, and most banks will have useful leaflets listing ATM locations throughout the country.
