Know Vietnam's Currency

VND or Vietnam Dong is Vietnam's currency.  Below are the images of the actual bills.  Remember in my previous blog, Vietnam - The Land to Discover;  I wrote that the estimate of the bill amount of Vietnam Dong are as follow:  (This is just an estimate so that when we buy things we can count it faster.)
  1. VND1,000,000.00 = PHP2,000.00
  2. VND500,000 = PHP1,000.00
  3. VND10,000.00 = PHP20.00

The current conversion rate of Vietnamese Dong is more or less:
1 Vietnamese Dong = 0.0020 Philippine Peso
 Note: this rate may vary depending on it's rate per day.

Below, are the conversion rates of Vietnamese Dong based on the above rate.

Now, you know why they don't use coins when selling things.  =)  Truthfully, the whole time I've been there, I didn't see a single coin being exchanged.  And now do you also know why, I said that you will feel like a millionaire when holding their money?  Imagine, having VND1,000,000.00 and its only PHP2,000.00? =)  It's really a very perplexing feeling.  Nevertheless, it was a fun experience.
