Does anyone know the recipe for the sauce they use on gà nướng on Chicken Street (Phố Cát Linh)? Is it just honey and fish sauce? I'm not in Vietnam and can't go to ask them. Thanks!

Hey, I am looking for a job teaching English in Hanoi. The school with the most jobs seems to be MIC - MINH QUANG INTERNATIONAL CORPORATION, does anybody know whether this is a reliable employer or not? I have seen a couple of negative reviews but they are at least a year old so just wondering if they've upped their game? If not, does anybody know of any trustworthy schools I could apply to? Thanks!

Hi all. I've read what feels like a thousand sites debating this issue.

I have a first class degree in English Language from a good university which included a module in ESL teaching, but isn't a TEFL or CELTA qualification. I'm looking to take a break from my hectic lifestyle and move to Vietnam with my boyfriend from October 2017 to June 2018. I don't wan...

I've noticed that things are rapidly changing in the Se Asian countries regarding teaching english. I have been scouring the boards, here and elsewhere in search of some solid answers but i have been unsuccessful. Hopefully a new question will open the doors to some new answers. I am 26, my gf is 23. The current state of our home country ( USA ) is in decline and it's becoming extremely difficult to make a comfortable living here. In addition, we would like to explore and travel the world. ...

Does anyone have any recommendations for ante natal classes or experiences that they can share. If possible I'd like to find classes run in English, so my wife doesn't have to worry about translating for me, although I figure that's a long shot. This will be our first baby, so I need all the help I can get! Any advice, suggestions or recommendations welcomed.

I'd like to get my motorbike down to Saigon from Danang. I was wondering whether i could put the motorbike on the train and then fly down myself and go pick it up? (I wanted to avoid a whole day's travel on the train). Does anyone have any experience doing this? or know anything more about it?

I am married to a Vietnamese woman and we have 2 children. I built a house in Vietnam as security for her and the children's future but as foreigners could not own land in Vietnam a few years ago it is all in her name. Of course she has never worked so I paid for everything 100%. I brought her to Australia 18 months ago, she got her residency and has now left me and taken the children. Can I stop her from selling the house and am I entitled to recover the money I spent on it?
