Dong to dollars

Posted from within Vietnam.

Crossing from Vietnam into Cambodia tomorrow, can I exchange my remaining Dong into US dollars at the border?

Probably you can but I've never tried it so can't tell you for sure. If I were you I'd try to change most of it while still in Vietnam if possible.

Don't change money at the Cambodian border. The rates are notoriously bad (50% of normal values). Better to change the money within Cambodia (not sure if they take Dong). Just in case you were not aware, they use US dollars for everything with their paper currency being used only for change. So you might already have some of that. Changing in Vietnam is better than changing at the border.

Try to exxchange your dong in vietnam, we tried to exchange them in cambodia...no luck...even in Bangkok its a pain in the ass to get rid off them and if you can exchange them its against a very bad rate
