Hi everyone! I'm staying in Hanoi with my boyfriend for 3 months. We already have accommodations for housing. We want to volunteer our time to reputable and trustworthy charity organizations. Can anyone help us find such opportunities?

Hi I have a question about VN marriage laws and customs. I'm a 33 year old Filipino married to a Vietnamese. My wife and I have been living separately for some years and will divorce. We have one child. I'm a mobile developer so I must live away often. I also always try to use popular apps including chat apps to keep up to date with tech. Through time, I've developed good online friendships, one of which is with a 17 year old VN girl. We fell in love after meeting in person and we've floated ...

I've had a hard time finding a girlfriend near me. I've constantly heard about how great it is to be a single white guy here in Vietnam but that hasn't been my experience at all. About me: American guy, 45 years old, single, expat working here in Vietnam for 2.5 years. Decent looking and really fit. I cannot and do not want to have children. I live in a small village of about 10k people in the Northeast. 1 hour from Ha Long and 5 hours from Hanoi. It seems like any single girls that can speak...

Everybody told me not to drink the tap water here and I haven't. But I do brush my teeth using it. Is it really that bad? Will I get sick if I drink it? I have been drinking the local tea and I suspect it uses tap water. True dat?

Hi Hanoians, does anyone know of any art classes available here? I'm interested in mixed media classes but would love to know of anything that's offered right now. I know Workroom Four occassionally run some but there's nothing on at the moment. UNIS sometimes have community classes but not much there either.

I've been picking alot of New Hanoians brains recently, and here I go again. I've been here long enough, but I have still never quite found a replacement for my trusted hairdresser from home. Any recommendations for a good one in Hanoi (with experience dealing with fragile western hair??) Cheers

This is has probably been asked before, if so, just redirect me to the thread but I'm really curious to know how bad is the bias against Asian Americans teaching English in Vietnam? How hard is it to get a job teaching English as an Asian American (or Canadian, Australian, etc.)?
