POST & TELECOMMUNICATION SERVICE
Domestic postal rates are sinfully cheap; a domestic letter costs 800VND (US$ 0.05) to mail. International postal rates are similar to what you pay in European countries. While these rates might not seem expensive to you, the tariffs are so out of line with most salaries that locals literally cannot afford to send letters to their friends and relatives abroad. If you would like to correspond with Vietnamese whom you meet during your visit, try leaving them enough stamps to cover postage for several letters, explaining that the stamps were extras you didn’t use and would be of no value to you at home.
