Send it to Daveh, he's in Vietnam now. . Although that doesn't really get you any dollars .

That idea is bordering on genius

If it would make people feel better you can all send me cash and then you can have a great time in Vietnam through me ;)

Perhaps that is correct, but I have been in several bars in Pattaya that a dong on the table would not have surprised the ladies working there!!

Eeh, if I remember it correctly it's actually illegal to bring dongs out of Vietnam, so I wouldn't be surprised if nobody will exchange it... :)

It is illegal to take VN dong out of the country, but the authorities will let you take a 'reasonable amount' out without penalty. I took home examples of very tattered and brand new notes to let my niece take to 'show and tell' at school. No problem with the border guards when they saw my VN currency.
