Hi, I was hoping to get more information about the different Apollo centres in Hanoi. I am hoping to find work in Hanoi for November and have been in touch with Apollo. Have any of you got experience with their Hanoi centres? I realise that with big institutions it can be different from one centre to another. Is there a centre that stands out ? Any centres I should avoid ? Thanks ! :-)

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?

Is there any turtle vets in hanoi that I could get to? Specifically, baby common snapping turtles. They have somehow got the end of their tail cut off and I keep trying to put the turtle in fresh water to avoid bacteria. I have found some white spots on their limbs and head so I'm very worried. Hope to the best that somebody answers soon.

Hi all, thank you for taking time to read and answer my question. I am from a small state in the USA and was recently offered a position at an international school in Hanoi, requiring me to move in July. I applied because I am 25, single and looking for adventure at this phase of my life while also not sacrificing finanacial security. I was feeling confident about this decision until speaking with my family who pointed out that I haven’t been to Southeast Asia or loved out of the state (have ...

Does anyone know where I can buy regular size rolling papers (like Tally-Ho) and filters for roll your own cigarettes near Hai Ba Trung District? Stocked up on duty free tobacco before I left home, but have run out of papers and filters.

Hi everyone, I am currently 26 years old from Germany and I am going to graduate this year with a Masters in Chemistry and I would really like to experience a different place for at least year (preferably more), before eventually deciding what I am gonna do next. I already visited Vietnam/Hanoi a couple of times (vacations/backpacking) and completely fall in love with the country. I always hear about teaching jobs in SEA, tho I am not too sure if I am permitted to teach English since I am ...

I have major issues with mould. I don't like it, it doesn't like me (I can tell); basically we don't co-exist happily. I have just moved into a house on West lake. Here, there is mould. I would be grateful if people would comment on the effectiveness of the following methods for removing / preventing mould, and suggest other possible solutions. I know there's a certain level that I'll just have to tolerate - I want this to be as small as possible though! Mould destruction methods:...

Lately I've found myself being attacked rather vigourously by mosquitos whilst I'm sleeping, which I'm not enjoying. I can't seem to locate the insects responsible (although I'm pretty sure they're mosquitos rather than bed bugs or fleas), and the idea of using a net makes me feel a bit claustrophobic. I heard that there's some kind of effective electronic mosquito deterrent / zapper that one can plug into a power socket - does anyone have details on this product, or know where I could buy on...
