    They have to spend all the monies that they got from us somehow!! They got me twice, once on bike on Cong Ly Bridge & in a Taxi on Binh Trieu Bridge… What a bunch of crooks!

      I have also been stopped on two occasions. Working on my driver’s license which can be easy for some, not so easy for others. I would not call them crooks, they are just trying to make a living. Their official salary is peanuts I heard.

    Hello Kevin,
    I am interested in hearing your take on the devaluation of the dong by over 9%. I am not a economics person so please tell me in lay mans terms. I look forward to your reply or you can email me. Thanks

    Easy. Prices of all things will go up. If you have VND in large amount, better dump ’em and hold on to USD or gold. A year or two after ’75, the VND lost 90%.
    Cops salaries might be low, that doesn’t give ’em the excuse to abuse the people & their power.

      Agreed but until the salary system is fixed, there is nothing that can be done. That is unfortunate.

      You can see the affects of the devaluation already. Restaurants have raised prices already.
