i'm leaving straight after tet. i know villages around ba be where they would love to have my stuff for free but getting a fridge freezer on the back of an old 110 honda for a 200km trip seems a bad idea. If anyone knows any community nearer home [I am in Pho Yen, 50km north of Hanoi - everyone here seems better off than I!]. Repeat I only have motorcycle and quite a bit of heavy stuff.
I am going UK for at least three months and would like to leave some gear in store. if anyone knows of commercial or private possibility i would be grateful. nothing too valuable but it would cost me a lot to set up pots and pans/wardrobe/guitar/bike etc when i return. search showed no results thanks
Is there anyone who can recommend to me: 1. American company in Hanoi (any field is fine, the bigger is better). 2. Vietnamese company produces products for America, also prefer in Hanoi/the North (any product is fine, the bigger is better). This is for a filming project regarding relationship between America & Vietnam. Any lead is appreciated. It will be very helpful if you have direct contact with the person in charge. Thanks, Khuyen
Hi, I've done a search of TNH and the web in the hope of finding any kids karate/martial arts classes but haven't had much luck. There is a bit out their for teenagers but nothing for younger kids. Does anyone know of classes that will accept kids 5 years old? I'm open to any styles as I just want to get my boy in to it for the discipline. Thanks in advance. Scott.
Where can I practise traditional Vietnamese martial arts i.e., Nam Huynh Dao or Nhat Nam? Or Chinese Wing Chun (Ving Tsun) or Vinh Xuan Quyen? (Preferably a Vietnamese or Chinese teacher/master) Please provide full contact details. Many thanks!!
Dear friends, In two weeks I'll be in Vietnam and want to throw a party with friends (expats and locals). We'll have dinner first and after that I'm looking for a party place, from around 10pm to 1pm. Preferably something were I can open a tab for my friends or an open bar. I don't want my friends to pay them themselves. Does anyone know a nice place like a classy bar? Or is it better to go to a Karaoke place? . Thanks!
We are looking to relocate from Australia to Hanoi in December 2018. Not sure if we should bring our 10 year old Bordier Collie along or if we should consider rehoming her in Australia. Is it difficult to rent a place in Hanoi with a dog?

Hi, I'm looking for Tai Chi lessons here in Hanoi, but it's proving harder than I expected. I've tried google and New Hanoian searches without any luck. I've also checked at most of the gyms and health clubs i can find. Does anyone have any ideas about where else I should look? Thanks!
I have been dating a Hanoi girl for a year now. We have got very serious. She is wonderful, always nice to me, she sends me long emails saying she loves me, text all the time, calls me day and night, she is jealous if she even thinks I am near another girl, she is careful with money, and bla bla bla. I had a few concerns a few months into the relationship, a brief list follows: She had no relationship status on her facebook She did not even have one picture of me on her facebook, but about 10^4 pictures of other men and about 5000 friends. I mentioned I was going to get my own facebook she insisted I should not do it. She started to tell me how many guys chase her around Hanoi and how she does not care for any of them. On certain weekends she would go to her "grandmas" house...
Hi there, I was wondering whether anyone has a recommendation for a good dentist in Hanoi, specifically one that does teeth whitening (it's all that caphe sua nong - delicious but shocking for my teeth!!). Any ideas??

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 ! :-)
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 not a native English speaker, and I assume there is not enough demand for German teachers. I was wondering if anyone has some advice in regards to my job possibilities?
