    Money

    Vietnam dong is the local currency used in Vietnam, and of course, Hanoi as well. 1 USD is equal to approximately 22,900 dong. Although the local economy runs on the dong, the dollar is also widely accepted by hotels, restaurants and the vast majority of shops (except for public transportation) with their prices quoted in both the dong and USD as well.


    However, credit cards, a very popular method of payment used worldwide, are not yet widely used in Hanoi. There are also some major hotels, restaurants or stores accept them, but you’d better use cash if you are in Hanoi for your convenience.

    Note: handing over more of your dong is a serious problem for newbies in Vietnam. Be careful.Remember, 10,000 dong looks a lot like 100,000 dong or 50,000 dong looks a lot like 500,000 dong. Look your bills over twice before handing them off. It’s a small, easy mistake that could cost you a day’s budget.
