Gia Nghia


The small bridge crossing the river marks the centre of town, and you can get everywhere you need to go on foot. Vietbooks publishes a good "yellow map" of the province and its capital, which you can pick up at the larger book stores in Saigon.

The town has an astonishing number of internet places for its size, usually charging only 3,000 VND per hour -- though you won't get any printing, scanning, or memory card services.

The banks in town are pretty much useless to foreigners. Even the main bank, Agribank (Tran Hung Bao St, Gia Nghia. T: (050) 543 164, F: (050) 544 610. Hours: 07:30 to 16:30), doesn't exchange currency or cash travellers cheques and the ATMs are local only. The nearest foreigner-friendly ATMs are in Buon Ma Thuot to the north, and Dong Xoai to the south. For foreign currency exchange, head to one of the gold shops in the town market. Travellers cheques are not cashed anywhere in town that we could find.

The main post office is located catty-corner to the Agribank. Hours: 06:00 to 21:00 Daily. T: (050) 545 172 F: (050) 543 259.
