It turns out there are lots of different ways to do this, but the easiest and most accessible way is through PayPal. This is because PayPal is available in Vietnam, where most international transfers are made through Western Union or Moneygram. If you're trying to send money from the U.S., you can use PayPal's services in Vietnam by going through your regular account (or creating one if you don't already have one) and choosing "send money" on the dropdown menu under "send" or "pay."

Once you've chosen which currency you want to send, you can choose between USD and VND. You'll be asked which country you want your recipient's money sent to (select Vietnam), then enter their first name, last name, email address (as well as other relevant details like phone number.)

^ I agree

I have made use of PayPal numerous times while traveling and it has never let me know. It is fast, easy, and convenient.

This is handy information. Great tips for Vietnam but also in other areas. I feel like people who don't travel often overlook a lot of these.

Something that I always hated when traveling was having to exchange money or having to worry about it. Thankfully, things are a lot easier in this day and age. I couldn't imagine traveling 50+ years ago.

Don't they have virtual apps that allow you to load a virtual card/account with your own currency and it will change based on your location? I could have sworn that was a thing!

I have mainly used Paypal and Stripe when traveling. I guess for certain areas, these would probably be more useful. I will download a few and check them out.
