What kind of currency do you use in Vietnam and will it be easy to change other currencies to your currency?

In Vietnam the currency is called the Vietnamese Dong (VND). Changing other currencies in Vietnam is quite easy. Changing common currencies such as USD and the Euro as well as traveler cheques are the easiest. It is although tougher and more costly to exchange your dong back into USD.

You can exchange your money at the banks, the many currency converters, and jewelry stores. Rates will vary from place to place and from currency to currency.

Tip: Always carry small denominations of VND. Some small shops and small villages often will not have change. Being aware of this will save you time, money and frustration. 

Tip: Always bring crisp, clean foreign currency. Some places will not accepted tattered or torn bills. The larger bills offer better rates.
