To settle an arguement could you tell me the currency most widely used in Vietnam?
Should we stick to the dong or take US dollars to spend as well?

Thanx...i appreciate the help

Definitely the Dong, but it's worthless outside the country. Tour groups and guesthouses will accept US DOllars

Oh really? I have read that although the dollar is acyually illegal it is still widely accepted? So besides guesthouses & tour groups etc the dollar won't be accepted?
