We visited Vietnam in December 2015, spending 3 nights in Saigon/Ho Chi Minh City, a week on Phu Quoc, 4 nights in Hoi An and 2 nights in Hue. In 2018 we returned to Hoi An for 7 nights, and spent one night in Danang. We hope to visit the north - including Hanoi, Halong Bay and Sapa - in the not too distant future.
ATMs in Vietnam - Be careful as most charge a fee for withdrawing cash and some have very small maximum limits for each cash withdrawal. In 2015 we found the best one was Citibank (available at Ho Chi Minh City airport and around the city itself and offering up to 8,000,000 dong with no fees). SeABank in Hue only allowed 2,000,000 limit but didn't charge a fee. Agribank charged a fee (22,000 for a 3,000,000 dong withdrawal), ANZ charged 40,000 on a 3,000,000 transaction, VietinBank in Hoi An charged a fee (an extra 55,000 dong on a 2,000,000 withdrawal) but didn't tell you about the fee until you had completed the transaction! In 2018 we couldn't find any in Hoi An or Danang Airport that didn't charge a fee.
