ATMs everywhere in Saigon

Amazing what a year makes.  ATMs are everywhere in Saigon.  I can even find HSBC ATMs all over Saigon now saving me a bundle in ATM fees ($40/month).  There are three convenient locations that I can use regularly now.  My favorite location being Pham Ngu Lao.

Below is ANZ’s ATM near the corner of Dien Bien Phu and Le Quy Don in District 3.

    Hi Kevin,

    I stumbled across your website while doing research for my fast-approaching trip to Vietnam. I was wondering if something I read elsewhere on the Internet is true: that the daily limit on the amount of money you can get from an ATM in Vietnam is a lot less than it is in the US–2 million dong (approximately $100 US, as opposed to the US standard of about $300/day). Is that true for all ATMs? My typical M.O. when I travel is to get cash as I need it, but if I’m going to be this severely restricted, I may have to bring cash with me…

    Thanks!
    Chloe

    Chloe: At ANZ you can draw up to 9 million (Over $500) if I remember correctly – it might be even more – but they only give you a maximum of 40 bills at a time, so if they have VND500 000 bills you’re in luck, otherwise you may have to make multiple transactions.

    Ben: There’a fold-out brochure available at ANZ ATMs listing all their locations in Saigon.

    I’m starting to sound like their representative now (how about a job Mr Bank Manager?)!
