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!

Hi, I'm looking for larger puppets to use in my kindergarten classes. I especially want one to use as my 'co-teacher', something like a monkey or other easily recognised animal. Any help in where to get one would be ace. Thanks.
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.
Are there book stores in Hanoi that carry the kinds of books that are used in English language classrooms? I'm a beginner English teacher and would like to buy some books to use with individual students and to become familiar with those that are used in schools. 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?
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?
I need to send two big bags down to Saigon, the postal service is out of the question. Can anyone give me info/ advice on how I can send these bags to Saigon via train or airplane? Is there a reliable service that I could use?
This post is for those that are new to Hanoi, we want to let you know of how some English centers are taking away from your pay. 1. If they are paying you $20 p/h and are taking away from you 500vnd for each dollar, then ask them to pay the current exchange rate of that day.... With the currency always lowering, that 500vnd adds up. If you have 50 hours a month, that's 500,000vnd. For the year, that is 6.000.000vnd. 2. Some English centers are claiming tax as they make some things very very confusing to calculate it as you really do not know where the portion they take is going to. 3. Some English centers will ask you to delay your pay over & over again until they incur a very large debt and may not fully pay it. 4. What experiences have you had?
