    Dong is still not an international currency, hence you can't buy or sell it outside Vietnam. There is a couple of exchanges at the airport with not bad rates.

    Thanks Johnny, I thought that may be the case. I will only change a little at the Airport just to get me by in the first day.

    Normally gold shops give the best rate. Also there are ATM's everywhere which work with most cards, might be a better option as the Dong might be devalued somewhat in the next few months

    Hotels are notorious for giving the worst rates, and with the dong going up and down these days your better to go to the a gold shop (these are money exchangers as well as gold merchents)
