Vietnamese Dong Currency Guide

The Vietnamese Dong has been the official currency of Vietnam since May 1978, and is issued by the Vietnamese State Bank. After the Zimbabwe Dollar collapsed in April 2009, the Vietnamese Dong became the lowest-value currency in the world, with £1 buying roughly 30,000 VND.

Vietnam is generally a very inexpensive place to visit, with restaurant meals costing less than £4 per person, and city-centre rooms available from as little as £10 per night. We have seen that the average order placed between 1st of August and 31st of October 2013 is for about £624 (20,000,000VND)

Most tourist centres in Vietnam will accept both Vietnamese Dongs and US Dollars, so it is advisable to take either Dollars or a mixture of both. US Dollars have the advantage that they can be exchanged back into Sterling upon return from Vietnam using a currency buy back service, and spending is more manageable with $300 in your wallet instead of 6,000,000 VND!

…Illegal shops may offer higher rates…

Only exchange money at official Money Exchange Counters displaying a clear sign showing this. Illegal money changers like gold shops may offer a higher rate but there is a real risk of losing your money¹. It is almost impossible to change VND into US dollars without a flight ticket showing your onward destination even at official money changers.
