CURRENCY IN VIETNAM

The currency of Vietnam is Dong (VND). Currency exchange rates at the airport are competitive, and it is preferable to change money there than in the backpackers area in the city, which tends to have less touristy favorable rates. Ask first, if there’s a commission fee, because this will add to the cost of changing money and remove any rate advantage that is offered.

There are also ATM machines available on the right side near the currency exchange booths, which you can use to withdraw cash if you have an appropriate bank card. The withdrawal fee is 20,000 VND.
