Exchange Vietnamese Dong To Thai Baht in Bangkok, Thailand

When I was leaving Vietnam, I wanted to change my Vietnamese Dong (VND) back to Thai Baht (THB) at the the Hanoi airport. When I checked the prices however, I was pretty surprised - the spread was like 50%. Thinking I would get a better deal in Thailand, I kept my VND.

Well, I never imagined a currency could be so unpopular. You almost cannot sell VND outside of Vietnam (now I know why you get such good prices for your foreign currency in Vietnam). Eventually I found SuperRich, at Ratchadamri (ราชดำรี) near the Chit Lom station (ขิดลม) where they will buy your Dong. The price was okay at about 580 VND for 1 THB and I was glad to get rid of my Dong.

Here is the map for SuperRich, from their website:
