I went to exchange money for the first time in a couple months today and was a little surprised by the current rate for the dollar. The gold shops are currently giving 19,500 Vietnamese Dong for $1. That’s about the highest I’ve seen it even as it seems that the dollar is weakening against most of the other currencies around the world.
Sorry for the lack of updates. I will be back this weekend with a post.
Update 11/11/2010: The current exchange rate has risen to almost 21,000VND/$1USD
