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 ...

Hi, I'm a naturopathic doctor from Canada. I will be returning to Hanoi within the year to get married and settle there. I'm curious as to whether or not there is a demand for a naturopathic doctor or if I'm going to have to switch careers. I'd really like to get your opinions on this. P.S. the last time I was in Hanoi, I wasn't able to locate a health food store...is there one? thanks :D

Does anyone know the title of the music being played on Vietnam Airlines while passengers board the plane (and search for their seats)? It's the accompanying music to the images of nature being shown on the television screens scattered all around the plane. I heard the music on all my domestic flights (Danang, Ho Chi Minh) aboard the Vietnam Airlines. It is just music with no lyrics. Very Relaxing music that I could use for my digital stories. Thanks a lot!

A good Vietnamese friend of mine is getting married soon, and I need to buy a gift. Yes, I know that tradition calls for money, but I'm not a traditionalist! I'm thinking of a really nice pendulum clock, what do you think? I won't be going to the wedding since it's halfway to HCM.

Curious about a Reiki sign I saw at the Western Canned Food store awhile ago. It was there for months, but I only just went to check it out this week, and of course, it was gone! boo hoo. If you know this person that was advertising their services or anyone who practices in Hanoi, please let me know. Prefer English speaking person. Thanks, Steph dstephfuccio (at) yahoo.com www.travelgoddess.net

Any rock musicians in Hanoi? I'm a rock n roll bass guy, done vocals too, everything from Billy Joel and Van Morrison to the Stones, Weezer and Ramones. Anyone know if there are paid gigs or at least places to play in Hanoi? What about jam rooms? Be nice to meet some other players, nothing too serious or algebraic in execution. Thanks ; )
