UPDATE on 6th ASEACC Meeting at Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, 1-4 July, 2010
We have a few changes and some information for you regarding the upcoming meeting:
It is no longer at the IDECAF. The new venue is on the same road as the 2 A&Em Hotels:
Golden Central Hotel Saigon,
140 Ly Tu Trong Street, Ben Thanh Ward, District 1
Information about money changers:
The best exchange rate usually if you just use your bank debit card and withdraw directly from ATM machines in VN Dong. Most exchanges in District 1 tend to be more expensive (tourists). For safety, the best locations tend to be inside the malls, like Saigon Tax and Saigon Center. The Highlands Cafe chain is like the Starbuck’s there. As of Friday 18 June, the exchange rate for $100 is vnd 19,000 for a dollar.
Money changers in District 1:
Ben Thanh market (opens 10am), Le Thanh Ton and Mac Thi Buoi (opens at 7am). We recommend the money changer inside Ben Thanh.
