Can we use Indian rupees in Vietnam

Travelers from India and throughout the world are increasingly turning to Vietnam as a vacation destination. It has a unique and lovable appeal. Sadly, Vietnam has been eclipsed by its glitzier neighbors, Thailand and Malaysia, but if you decide to make this your next vacation, you won’t be disappointed. In terms of value for money, Vietnam is a popular choice for tourists. As we all know, only a small number of countries have currencies that are less valuable than the Indian Rupee. Let’s take advantage of this and arrange a trip to Vietnam for you.

Β Yes, a Visa is required for entry into Vietnam for Indian nationals. While it is possible to obtain a visa on arrival in Vietnam, you must obtain an approval letter first. You can find this service offered by a number of companies. Use and recommend Vietnam Visa Pro, the one we’ve used ourselves. A wide range of nations are covered, and the costs are very reasonable.

Currency conversion

The Vietnamese Dong is the country’s official currency. Compared to the Vietnamese Dong, the Indian Rupee is far more valuable. The current exchange rate is 1 Indian Rupee to 347 Vietnamese Dong (as of March 2017). According to this information, I would estimate that the costs are in line with the typical costs in India. Pho for breakfast, for example, will set you back anywhere from 80 to 100 INR or 30,000 VND (Vietnamese Dong). So, make sure you have enough Dong on you at all times.

Cash is also required because most establishments don’t accept credit cards. In particular, the street food carts, which I strongly recommend eating at, serve some of the best food in the country, period.


In Vietnam’s larger cities, you’ll find a few reputable international chain hotels. When we first arrived in Ho Chi Minh City, we stayed at the Intercontinental Saigon, but after that, we stayed at smaller boutique hotels. They were a lot less expensive, but they also provided excellent customer service. Customers at smaller hotels and hostels received excellent treatment during our two-week trip. These are the places to stay that we’ve visited and can vouch for.

  • Intercontinental Saigon
  • La Beauty de Hanoi – Hanoi
  • The Orchid Hotel – Hue
  • See You at Lily’s -Hostel in Hanoi

Best time to visit

February through April and August through October are the finest months to visit. It’s a great day to travel because the weather is beautiful.

If you want to visit everything in Vietnam, you’ll need at least a month. The destinations we recommended can be done in two weeks without feeling rushed. If you don’t have two weeks to spare, Hanoi and Halong Bay can likely be completed in four days.
