    Hi vin4564,

    There's legal moneychangers all over the place and while you'll be able to find unofficial exchangers very occasionally, the difference in rates is nominal and often not even advantageous.

    As far as Tet is concerned, our man on the ground in Hanoi says the festival kicks off on Feb 17 and while officially the festival goes for three days, he's not expecting things to really get back to normal till the 23rd or 24th.
