How Much Cash Should I Carry in Vietnam?

Assuming your hotels, tours, and transportation are all booked beforehand, you can comfortably budget to take around $30 USD (~600,000 VND) for a day of traveling — this will cover your meals, tips, and a few extra expenses like souvenirs. If you plan to splurge on fancy meals, drinks, and lots of souvenir shopping, bring closer to $45 (~1,000,000 VND). Make sure to have enough cash before your depart for rural areas where it will be harder to find ATMs.
