I'm a Japanese person living in Hanoi. My current visa will expire on 4th January so need to update it. I hope to get 3 months multiple tourist visa by visa on arrival. However, I cannot take flight so need to get visa by land this time. So far, the agents could prepare visa letters before I reentered other borders by land. I want to try the same way to get visa at Lao Cai border and have a short trip in Hekou this time. But most of visa agents don’t seem to support making visa letter for the immigration of Lao Cai border.. Anyways, I’d be glad if you share information or guide me the best way for this case. Thank you,
who plays violin with jeff beck? the answer is nowhere on you tube despite some rarified playing by the violinist. tabbed as "jeff beck and tal wilkenbucket" - the latter is his bass playing partner but not the violinist. never mind - i don't expect an answer but the "ask" website is now just another search engine
Anyone know somewhere I can get really nice office furniture? Nice design (modern, minimalist, etc.), and not the usual made-of-wood boxy stuff you see everywhere. Don't know if this stuff even exists here in Vietnam, but maybe... Thanks for any help.
Can anyone recommend a place to buy good quality 100% mulberry silk bedsheets that are 19mm? The places I have found are way overpriced. Looking for sets (two pillowcases, one bottom sheet, and a top sheet) that are $60 and under. Thanks!
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
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
Hi, I tried finding this, but did not get any search results on here (though some on google) Any ideas about the price for air purifiers? I saw there is an IQ air showroom in Syrena shopping mall, but can't find any prices online. Any ideas about the price for an air purifier for my bedroom? Thanks a lot.
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
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
