I did a search and to no avail. I need to buy some decent quality suitcases/luggage. I've been to several places in the Old Quarter (Hang Be street, for example) and the prices were cheap, but so was the quality. The quality was not good enough. Anyone know where I can purchase good a good quality suitcase(s)? One large, and one medium? Thanks in advance to anyone that can help.
I’m moving to Hanoi. Having lived in Jakarta I’m (hopefully unjustifiably) afraid of floods. Which districts of the city are considered less flood-prone, thus recommendable for finding an apartment? Thank you for your help!! It’s appreciated.
I need to buy US dollars. I have lots of Dong. I have a bank account at a western bank here in Hanoi. Is changing Dong for dollars at the bank the best? Or, is it better to do this at gold shops? If so, which ones. Thanks in advance.
My newborn baby was recently granted citizenship for both the Philippines and the USA. Her passports will not be ready for two months, but we were hoping to travel to the Philippines for Christmas. The Philippines Embassy gave us a travel document that states that our daughter is a Philippines citizen and that they request safe and lawful travel for her. At the bottom, they said we need to get an exit visa for this from the Vietnam Embassy. Does anyone have any experience with this? I c...
Anyone know what he cause of the increased pollution i the nigh times is in Hanoi of late? Looking at the Hanoi real-time air quality index on the net it shows that the pollution picks up in the evening and peaks in the early hours of the morning, its currently 271 at 2 am. It's not the rice(which I've asked about here before) i'm sure as it smells different and i'm currently in the countryside in bac ninh and the airs quiet fresh.
I have a one-year work permit here, and have just renewed my American passport. Anyone have experience updating the permit to a new passport #? I know how to switch over the visa, that's described in detail around here...but switching over the work permit is different, since it's labor instead of immigration. I think. Any heads up on a timeline for this sort of project would also be glorious.
Dear New Hanoians, I am looking to purchase Glockenspiels, Marimbas, Xylophones and Metallophones and various other percussion instruments. Is there any where in Hanoi or indeed all of Vietnam that might sell any or all of these things? Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Hanoioboyo

Hello Everyone, I have just recently returned to the UK from a trip to Vietnam. As many before me, I was very impressed with the quality and price of some of the North Face jackets I found in Hoi An. I purchased one and took the business card of a shop where they seemed to have the most extensive range. I have recently been told there is a North Face factory north of Hoi An and quite close to Hanoi. If anyone can assist me in confirming this and providing me with contact details fo...
