Exchange Rate Scam

Some hotels can set their room prices in USD, and then when travelers want to pay in VND, the exchange rate will increase.

To prevent this, travelers should ask the price in the currency that they intend to pay in from the beginning. If the exchange rate is too high, never give any of your personal information to the hotel.

Moreover, check the room's equipment immediately right after check-in. If there is anything that's not in the described condition, inform the staff right away. If not, when you check out, you will have to pay for the broken equipment.
