One of the challenges of being a foreigner or expat in Vietnam is your currency. We always get asked where we can exchange our money and the best bet would be going to one of the banks in Saigon or at the airport upon arrival.

Should I convert VND to another currency before leaving Vietnam?

Please be advised that VND is not an international convertible currency and that it is highly difficult to exchange outside of Vietnam. So be sure to convert your money before leaving the country.
