Which credit card is best for international travel
Last year saw a dramatic rise in the development of Vietnam's card market, with local and foreign banks leading the charge. The automated teller machines (ATMs) network is growing and more retailers are catching on by accepting card payments. But when will plastic money really take off in Vietnam?
