    I have just left Vietnam and crossed the border into China and I have some Vietnamese Dong left...does anyone now if it is possible to exchange it anywhere out of Vietnam? We were told it was possible to exhcange it in the Bank of China, but that is not true..Any suggestions?

    I don't think you'll be able to change it anyway...looks like you'll have to make a return trip to use it all up!! Otherwise, there's sure to be a black market exchange place- just be careful you're getting real banknotes, and an ok exchange rate. Good luck:-)

    The Dong is 'non-convertible' as is the Chinese Yuan / RMB although both currencies are popular with the shady characters that hang around at the borders.

    You could wrap it in aluminum foil and the send it registered to a charity in VietNam ... or come back and visit again.
