Funny - I copied an exact phrase from a post title and nothing came up, so I guess I'll post. I'm looking for a reliable camera and lens repair technician in Hanoi. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks, hc.

Has anyone gotten a visa for Vietnam in Phnom Penh recently? I read in the forums from a few years ago that 1 year visas were available. I wouldn't mind getting one through Phnom Penh rather than getting a VOA letter and flying to Bangkok and back.

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...

Hello Me and my boyfriend are currently doing a loop on northern vietnam sharing an old looking Honda Future Neo. We have made it from Hanoi to Yen Bai so far, and want to head to Lao Cai, Bac Ha, Ha Giang, Cao Bang and Lang Son to eventually return to Hanoi in a couple of weeks time. The bikes has a few faults (no brakes lights, one wing mirror missing, front mud guard close the falling off and makes it a very loud high pitched noise when driving) and we are getting a little concerned wit...

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 ...

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!

Any rock musicians in Hanoi? I'm a rock n roll bass guy, done vocals too, everything from Billy Joel and Van Morrison to the Stones, Weezer and Ramones. Anyone know if there are paid gigs or at least places to play in Hanoi? What about jam rooms? Be nice to meet some other players, nothing too serious or algebraic in execution. Thanks ; )
