Hi, I lost my original degree certificate and didn't have time to get a replacement before I came to Vietnam. My university sent the replacement to my old address, and I've got someone to post it out to Hanoi. After doing some reading online it appears that sending anything to Vietnam isn't advised.

We are living in Europe, but we would like to have a dinner and party with around 40 friends from Europe and Hanoi, where my fiancee was born. We are considering dinner at Sen Ho Ray and e.g. a party at a boat. Does somebody have a recommendation? :)

Kissy, Leo, Lucky masks are all a complete joke! I'm looking for a proper anti-pollution mask. The mask needs to create a seal so that the only air coming into your nose or mouth is going directly through the filter. It's really amazing the BS people believe when they buy these hack products thinking they help keep their lungs clean. The air pollution in Hanoi is worse than Calcutta, Bangkok and Beijing. I've seen filters from proper masks from all these cities and Hanoi's filter was da...

I'm not sure whether this site is applicable for my circumstances. I am searching for a relevant site that will put me in touch with someone Vietnamese who is seeking a working holiday in Australia. Is this site applicable? Perhaps, someone can guide me to an appropriate site, if not. Thank you.

I'm here for a few months and wondering if there are any pick up softball games that happen on the regular. Will not be able to play in my normal league this summer, so I'm hoping to play a bit if there are games.

Hi, I wonder if anyone can share about what do you like to read about Vietnam or Vietnamese people? I'm reading reviews about books about Vietnam/Vietnamese people, such as: Ru by Kim Thuy, No man's Land by Duong Thu Huong, "The Beauty of Humanity Movement" by Camilla Gibb, etc and wonder if anyone can share some others. Also what do you like to read about Vietnam or Vietnamese people which you think have not been written yet? (I'm asking since I'm nurturing an idea to write a bo...

It's been a while since I've lived in Hanoi or visited this prestigious website, but it's great to see the tradition of selling useless/old/damaged/invaluable items for well over market rates is continuing... a sampling of items: old shoes for 50k VND a pair, used t-shirts 100k, old magazines for 5,000vnd/ea (I mean why not just give them away.... to a charity.... right?). PS3 for 5.000.000 VND (PS3 people!!), a PS4 for 5.600.000 (go figure) Gotta give points for trying... What are ...
