Do you get a better conversion rate for $ cash (to Dong) at Saigon airport or at banks in Saigon city?

To be honest l found them both much the same. Both will charge commission but the rates were moreorless the same!

Hi yes i would agree with heather on this they are pretty much the same rate, large hotels tend to give you a slightly better rate though and also Jewelry stores tend to give you a better rate as they prefer $ to dong . The difference is minimal though where ever you decide to go and exchange it.
