Answered by TravelChinaGuide | Jul. 14, 2016 02:35

The weather is cool/cold in north Vietnam (Hanoi, Halong Bay, Hue 18-28’C), warm in central and south Vietnam (Hoian, Saigon). This climate is fine but it is the busiest time in the year for tourists to come to Vietnam.

Vietnam accept credit card or US dollars or we have to exchange to their currency?
Please also tell me is there time difference bet Manila and Vietnam.

Answered by Abbey | Jun. 27, 2016 01:10

US dollar is the best currency to bring to Vietnam. Visa/ Master cards are popular in the big cities like Ho Chi Minh & Hanoi. You can pay by credit card and withdraw the local currency from ATM. The time in Manila is one hour earlier than that in Vietnam. For example, it is 20:47 in Manila, but 19:47 in Saigon.
