Hi, folks. I'm new on this site, and I read the instructions, so I hope I am operating within the rules. I am in Thailand, though I'm from the US. I'm very strongly considering teaching ESL in VN, and to that end have been studying Vietnamese. I have an MA in TESL and plenty of experience. I sent email inquiries to VUS English Centers (based on a reco) and to Vietnam Teachings Jobs.com and Compass Education, both just as a result of a google search. But here's the think.... I haven't g...

Hi, Does anyone know if it is possible to buy Concerta in Vietnam? In the USA it is a controlled drug and I can only get 30 tablets each month. That way they can limit illegal sales of drugs in the USA. My parents aren't able to send me my medicine overseas, and my doctor won't prescribe me anymore unless I show up the the USA and have an appointment. It is all very annoying. Does anyone know of any ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) medication in Vietnam? Other than Ritalin? Thanks ...

Hi everyone! So I need to obtain a Criminal records check "Ly lich Tu phap" from the National Center for Criminal Records in Vietnam. I am a Uk citizen who no longer resides in Vietnam. I need this certificate to pass security clearances in my new job in the UK. I have looked through the Vietnamese embassy in the UK's website for advice and it appears that it can be done but you need to authorise someone in Vietnam to do it for you. I have no contacts in Hanoi who could possibly do t...

Hi There Everyone, I am seeking advice on how to proceed with opening up a startup with Vietnamese citizens. I see most businesses open through a Joint Stock Company here. 1. I was wanting to know would it be best to open a Limited Liability Company instead of a Joint Stock Company? 2. What is the best way to protect yourself as a foreigner when it comes to being in a partnership? (Not saying that things will go wrong or VN citizens are bad, but just wondering for future reference so...

Hello, I have to make it here to hear your point of view on this terrible thing. You might question why. Long story but the main reason was I wasn't interested and told him to go away. He got pissed and hit me right at the traffic light off Au Co street. I called the police then. But when the cops showed up, he pretended to apologise. Even after that he still texted me nasty messages. I blocked his number and could have let this go. But it's not fair. I mean you guys are warmly welcome to th...

First, can anybody link to garbage sorting collecting centers that pay for trash? I often see people digging through trash to take cans and bottles somewhere where it seems they will get paid for them. Where are the biggest locations and what are their names? Second, does anyone know where to dispose of harmful (electronic) trash like batteries, light bulbs, and things that contain chemicals? After reading this question already asked on TNH, I understand how most people sort their trash...

A friend of mine visited Hanoi last year and included a Halon Bay tour but bought no pearls. Now she is coming back to Hanoi and wants to buy some pearls. Unfortunately, this year no trip to Halong Bay is planned. Does someone know where she can buy jewelry with pearls and that kind of stuff in Hanoi?

Where, if so can you buy Huda Beer in Hanoi? Just came back from a quick trip to Da Nang and loved the beer. So planned to buy a case once i was through security, but none of the shops sold it in the new terminal, also I have never seen it here in Hanoi. I know Beer Temple does not sell it. Anyone know?

Where the devil is a smoke shop in Ha Noi? Anything close to a western smoke shop, with a good selection of cigarettes, cigars, shisha, and pipe tobacco. I know of fancy liquor stores on almost every street, but not a single smoke shop have I found.
