my mate and I are booked onto the Vietnam Adventure on December 11th. We are doing 2 weeks solo (a week either side of tour) as well as the 2 weeks of tour. Starting in Thailand and heading into Cambodia. I just have a few questions:
How much local currency should I take (Dong) ?
Should I keep my main currency (dollars or pounds) in the bank and get from ATMs when required but keep some dollars as pocket change? and if so how much ? Not planning on buying anything (gifts) till after tour end - so just need cash for beer, food and transport. Not sure how cheap things are... Also will a Visa Debit card work ok for booking hotels etc ?
Also can anyone advise on a good hotel for a couple of days in Siem Reap and also best transport for :
between Siem Reap and Ho Chi Min City hopefully avoiding Phnom Penh !
Thanks in advance !John
