Euro's and all other major currencies are fine in all the tourist areas. You will only need $US when/if you are really off the tourist trail. Lots of ATM's for cash advance in most places. If you are heading out of the way for a couple of days get enough dong before you go. 4 years ago I changed $AU and got cash advances to get around so should be even easier now. Pay for everything in dong after you have exchanged. Have a great trip I'll be back in Nov!!
