I'm contemplating whether it is a good idea to move to Hanoi with my kids. I have one infant and a toddler. What are some pros (if any?) about raising children in Hanoi? What are the cons? What should I look out for/be aware of? We've visited Hanoi many times but have never lived in Hanoi. What will be the biggest difference? As you can tell I'm completely lost. Not sure what to do or where to start. Any recommendations (based on experience or otherwise) is greatly appreciated. Eg. Regardin...
Hi I am coming to Hanoi to teach (hopefully) in a couple of months. I would like some up to date info on what documents to bring. I have been told I need a police check from UK (where i currently live).

I'm looking to get a pair of Electronic timers to control when my hot water heaters come on (overnight would be nice). This will save money and save me cursing when they come on together during the day and trip the fuse down our street necessitating me going for a wander down the road and climbing some kind of telegrapg pole. Somewhere in Hanoi would be nice.
Hi, Can anyone recommend a place to get my iPod Touch screen replaced? I dropped it and the screen has shattered, the unit still works fine though so no internal damage done. Just need a store that will take off the old screen and replace it without wanting to fiddle with it, as they do for more money :-) I live in Ho Tay but work in Dong Da so anywhere in, or between, those two areas would be great. Thanks in advance for any help.
