Vietnam bank notes


Vietnam bank notes


The local currency in Vietnam is Dong (VND). At the time of writing, 1 USD is around 20,050 VND. Local VND or USD are both accepted. Banks are open Monday to Friday and some open on Saturday morning. In main cities, travelers' cheques can be exchanged at banks and some exchange bureau, but this can be very difficult in small towns. ATMs can be found in major cities Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh city, Hoian, Haiphong so do not depend on any kind of bankcards ( e.g. credit cards...) as your main source of funds.

Bank notes are: 100d , 200d and 500d (too small value - rarely used); 1,000d; 2,000d; 5,000d; 10,000d, 20,000d, 50,000d and 100,000d (each has two versions - cotton and polymer), 200,000d and 500,000d. Coins have recently come into circulation but not widely been accepted due to inconvenience, including: 200d; 500d; 1,000d; 2,000d and 5,000d. Their photos are as below.
