I had my card swallowed by an ATM machine and it was a hassle to get it back. How come some banks closed during lunch hours? Fiesta hours?

May be you made a typing error. The ATM fee at Citi bank is 60k/ transaction, not 600k.

A warning for travelers here: Don’t use HSBC ATM if you are not a customer.
They give you only 2 Mio VND/transaction and charge 40k VND each (2%).
So for getting e.g. 8 Mio VND, they charge you 160k compared to 60k at Citi bank ATM.

As far as I know, living in HCMC for many years now, all ANZ ATMs and branches have been taken over by Shinhan Bank in 2018. ANZ only serves institutional banking.
I used to use Citi Bank ATM Nguyen Hue as they give 8 million VND /transaction, charging a withdrawal fee of 60k VND each, which is only 0.75%, not 4% as mentioned here.

withdrawal fee at Citibank is 600k VND/transaction. The 4% fee mentioned in the blog must have been for overseas transaction.
