The currency in Vietnam is the Vietnamese Dong (VND). It's best to exchange money at banks, exchange offices, or withdraw from ATMs using a debit or credit card. Most major cities in Vietnam have ATMs that accept international cards, and some hotels and travel agencies may also offer currency exchange services, but it's important to check the exchange rates and fees beforehand.
