Does anybody have any recommendations for a venue that can cater for up to 500 people? Looking for something around the start of December. Cheers

I work as an English teacher teaching teenagers and adults academic English. I'm trying to find out if there are any English clubs in Hanoi where my students can go to practise their language outside of class. I know there are several cafes that organise this kind of thing in HCMC, but I've never heard of any here. Does anyone know of any? Cheers.

Anyone interested in book exchange? Or even a mini library (in English; novels, other fiction, non fictions, text books)? I've got 9 books that I'd like to swap. I know that there are book shops that do book exchange, but they tend to be a rip off, (in the past I've exchanged 3 books and money for 1). I'm talking swapping one book for another, fairly. Or, in future, a mini libary where people donate some books then can borrow books forever. I don't think there's an English language library ...

What Vietnamese slang words do you use? I am trying to learn tiếng Việt, but I think the language teached is very formal. What people speak on the street seems to be quite an other language. So please post some words or phrases of 'slang' and their translations. I already have some young Vietnamese friends on social media. What are some 'simplified' expressions used by the youth today in SMS or internet chat?

I can't find recent threads on this... where to buy a parakeet? Where to buy a pet turtle?

I have a 900 watt UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) that I bought and have been using in China. Plugging it in to a 2 wire socket here in Hanoi and I am getting no power, only a "UPS Off" message. The electricity in China and Vietnam are supposed to be exactly the same, 220v/50hz, however I am wondering if the UPS is refusing to function because of the lack of a dedicated ground wire at the socket. Anyone else using a UPS in Vietnam? Does it function without a ground wire? Did you buy the...

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? :)

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. Reading lots of stories of valuable items being stolen, lost, taking months to show up, etc. Feeling a bit stupid 'cause obviously it's pretty valuable and my university can only provide ...

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.
