So, the word on the street is that Sedona suites has a basketball court. Which is pretty sweet as I like basketball and live right around the corner. Problem= I couldn't (or more specifically my Vietnamese speaking companion) convince the surly security guard to let me in, to have a go. Bummer. Does anyone live there, or have any contacts at Sedona, and would be willing to get me in?? That would pretty well make my day! :) -Ryan
Hi there! I am moving to Hanoi in June with my husband, and I will be about 7.5 months pregnant at that point. I was hoping to have a home birth with a midwife, but I'm not finding a whole lot of info on that just from googling around. Are there midwives who make house calls in Hanoi? If so, where can I find that information? Thanks in advance! Sarah
Hi, We have to move into a smaller apartment. A 1 bedroom apartment is fine but may not have enough space for our earthly belongings, materials and some equipment. This is after I have sold off surplus shelves etc. already. Is there a place in Hanoi where it is possible to safely store some boxes?
Does anyone know anyone that does home massages...? I feel so relaxed at my home and hate the hassle of going out just to then get back into a cab, and have to contend with the hassle of going home... They do it all the time in other parts of the east... any where here?
Hi TNHers, Aussie expat in need of dental work. I’m TERRIFIED. Embarrassingly, I haven’t been to a dentist in years due to a phobia...last time I went in Australia I had my teeth cleaned and burst out crying and couldn’t stop.
We wish to send two suitcases of about 20 kilos each from our accommodation in Hoi An to a hotel in Hanoi in less than three days, while we fly with only hand luggage to HaiPhong, cruise Ha Long and bus back to Hanoi. Can ERS help, please?
Hello ! I will be leaving Vietnam in 3 weeks and for salary reasons, I cannot close my Vietnamese Bank account. I will be able to withdraw money from it whilst in Europe. I was wondering what will eventually happen if I do not close my account? Will it just be frozen over a certain period of time ? Thanks !
