Vietnam - clothing etiquette

I know that its important to keep shoulders covered in Vietnam, but could anyone advise if this also means the upper arm to the elbow or if sleeves that fall mid upper arm are acceptable?  I am also right knees should not be exposed?


Women should try to avoid wearing low - cut or tight sleeveless tops and skimpy shorts, particularly in the countryside/Mekong, but otherwise t-shirts and shorts are fine with knees and elbows on display.

I have been told that you can use both vietnamese deng & us dollars. Which curency do you recomend?


You can use both dollars and Vietnamese dong, however I would recommend using dong as you get a better exchange rate this way. There are ATMs in all the major cities/towns where you will get the most up to date exchange rate, although there is a limit of about 2 million dong that can be withdrawn in one transaction, this is my preferred choice of obtaining money when I travel.
