Vietnam: ways to save and what to watch out for

  • Street dishes cost as little as 3,000 or 4,000 VND, but portions are small so you might need more than one to fill you up

  • Taxi car rides cost about 10,000 to 15,000 VND – less than 50p – per kilometre. Buses are very cheap but can be uncomfortable and overcrowded, so you might prefer a first-class bus or bus tour. Bike hire costs around 68,000 to 160,700 VND, or about £2-5

  • Museums and national parks charge around 15,000 to 40,000 VND for admission. But if you use a guide inside a park you may have to pay much more. Park transport can be expensive too

  • Another way to beat the crowds and save money is to visit in the low season, when prices will be at their lowest

Some common questions

  • The Vietnamese dong is the official currency of Vietnam, abbreviated to VND. Its currency symbol is ₫, which you may see on your trip. In Vietnam, it's illegal to list prices or ask for payment in any other currency.

  • The Vietnamese dong currency is only used by the country of Vietnam itself.

  • If you buy your Vietnamese dong from Post Office you’ll get a competitive rate and there’s 0% commission. Use our online click and collect service to pick up travel money in a branch. Find a nearby branch.

    If you order online you may get a better rate, and it means we can also deliver currency to your home if you prefer. You’ll also get a better rate the more you buy. Try to buy when the pound is strong against the dong if you can, to save a little more. 

  • Vietnamese dong banknotes come in thousands; 10,000, 20,000, 50,000, 100,000, 200,000 and 500,000. But they’re not as big as they sound. Even the highest, the 500,000 VND, is worth just under £16 at the time of writing.

    Coins come in 200, 500, 1,000, 2,000 and 5,000 VND denominations, although locals may occasionally refuse to accept them as they prefer notes.
