Hi everyone, I have a medical condition which requires me to have enemas almost daily. Can I buy an enema kit from Hanoi somewhere or should I bring them with me? I’m also curious about a couple things: -What do rubber gloves cost at supermarket -Do Vietnamess use those surgical masks and where can I buy them? -What does rainwear cost at a market? -Are there any international(like US or UK) issues for sale of big magazines for women, for example Cosmopolitan or Marie Claire anywhere?

I did a search and to no avail. I need to buy some decent quality suitcases/luggage. I've been to several places in the Old Quarter (Hang Be street, for example) and the prices were cheap, but so was the quality. The quality was not good enough. Anyone know where I can purchase good a good quality suitcase(s)? One large, and one medium? Thanks in advance to anyone that can help.
Hi Everyone, I've scanned questions regarding a motorbike license but have not seen anything about people who might take the driver's license test or help with acquiring the license itself. Does anybody have contacts that help facilitate the process and a known price? I will be spending time in Hanoi and Lao Cai province. Thank you for your help!

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 ! :-)
I'd like to get my motorbike down to Saigon from Danang. I was wondering whether i could put the motorbike on the train and then fly down myself and go pick it up? (I wanted to avoid a whole day's travel on the train). Does anyone have any experience doing this? or know anything more about it?
Is there any turtle vets in hanoi that I could get to? Specifically, baby common snapping turtles.

Hope to the best that somebody answers soon.
Hi all, thank you for taking time to read and answer my question. I am from a small state in the USA and was recently offered a position at an international school in Hanoi, requiring me to move in July. I applied because I am 25, single and looking for adventure at this phase of my life while also not sacrificing finanacial security. I was feeling confident about this decision until speaking with my family who pointed out that I haven’t been to Southeast Asia or loved out of the state (have traveled but never lived elsewhere due to family commitments and school). This would be a big change for me and I was wondering what people’s thoughts were. I would be leaving the comfort of a secure job in a state that I know well for a two year stay in Hanoi. Has anyone else taken this leap of fai...
