Does anyone know if there's a departure tax at Saigon airport, and if so how much is it and can you pay in Vietnamese Dong?

I thought you had to pay an international departure tax - so l kept some cash back but when we got to the airport there was no charge whatsoever! Its included in the airfare ticket apparently - this was in Nov 07 so relatively recently.

Thanks.

I've got just enough cash left to last a day or so, so it saves me having to use another ATM.
