Banks & currency exchange

Banking services on the Phu Quoc Island are concentrated in Duong Dong Town, providing comprehensive services that include cashing of travellers cheques, currency exchange and ATM machines that are compatible with most international cards (Mastercard, Visa, Cirrus, etc). Banking facilities have improved along with an increase in the number of banks in recent times, so finding an ATM machine or changing money in town is becoming easier.

Most of the top end resorts on the island exchange major currencies, though rates are generally better at banks. Some resorts have ATM facilities on site.
