Last I looked, Whale Island is in Vietnam. Legal tender is VND, nothing else.

Everything is in Dong but often quoted in foreign currency for convenience and understanding for the customer. If they are asking for your currecy to book, odds are it is a 3rd party company. A Tip for whale Island..... be very clear on what is included in the cost.

I very much doubt that and it would be against the law.

I dont think so, I have been living in Việt Nam for a long time and VND is much more preferred. The best choice is VND. Never exchange your money at the airport, go to Vietcombank or some store which sell gold. their rate is much higher.
