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 was planning to bring a CRB but they have changed this in the UK to a disbarring disclosure and you cannot apply for this yourself! Does anyone know what employers/government of Viet nam would require from UK citizens from work permit. Your assistance on this would be greatly helpful- ...

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...
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.
I did a search for this question but the Search engine seems to be broken... Anyways, my motorbike license expires this Saturday, but I won't have my new visa until next week. Will I have to go through the process as if I'm getting a new license again or can I just extend it? What's the process? Thanks.
I saw a black and white Greyhound at Hatchiko Villa - Dog Spa and Hotel this morning. I tried to find out more about it but their English skills are about as good as my Vietnamese skills, so I couldn't find out anything. I am curious as to who might own it and where they got it as I would like one myself. Has anyone here seen this dog in Hanoi with its owners? If you know anything about it please let me know at 093 632 8584. Thanks!
I'm going to be volunteering at the Tay Thien monastery in Tam Dao NP for 3/4 weeks in April, followed by an organised 12 day tour down the country from Hanoi to HCMC. I desperately need to know whether I need anti-malarials for the long stay in Tam Dao? I plan to err on the side of caution and take the pills for the trip down the country, but just want to know what the risk is in Tam Dao itself? I cannot get a reliable answer anywhere. Can anyone who knows please advise?? Many thanks.
What does Hanoi have to offer as far as Prenatal Vitamins (for pregnant women)? Is there anywhere that sells western products, from US or Europe? What are the vietnamese versions? How do you spell that (so I could show it to a pharmacy)?
I am looking for a good hairdresser/ salon where they can bleach hair and get my blond hair a refreshed look! I am afraid the Vietnamese hairdresser are not so used to do blond Swedish-style colour or bleach European hair and I don't want to end up with "yellow chicken"-coloured hair. All blond ladies out there know this problem so could any blond girl give me a god advice of a hairdresser they actually been at? Good result and quality before cost in this case! Thank you //dull hair B...
