I'm trying to find more info about international travel by motorbike - can anyone suggest any resources or does anyone have any experience? I'm looking to go through several countries, hopefully to get from Hanoi to Nepal, maybe further. I hear conflicting stories about what's possible/necessary and what's not, but i'm determined to find a way...

Is there anywhere in Hanoi which has the figure of eight painted on the ground where you can freely go and practice for the motorbike test? Somewhere in the West of the city would be best for me. Thanks! (I've found lots (!!!) of other discussions about riding motorbikes and getting licenses but not an up-to-date answer to this question. However, if I've missed it, apologies, just send me the correct thread).

The airport minibus service departs/arrives opposite the Vietnam Airlines office at #1 Quang Trung. And I know that they normally wait until they are full before leaving. The question is, (about) what time does the earliest minibus leave in the mornings? Is it the same for weekdays and weekends?

Hi! My oldies are coming over for a trip to visit over the xmas period and I am looking for a great resort, with a good pool, buffet food/drink and close to Hanoi. Basically somewhere we can eat and drink like mad people, by an epic pool. Ive looked at a lot of q&a's and most mention either Esmaralda or Asean. They look ok, but is there anything else someone can recommend? Thanks guys!

The family and I are heading to Burma over TET and wondered if anyone has used a travel agent here that has experience in organising tours there? Flights there are covered but we are looking for someone to do the Hotels and private tours in Yangon and Mandalay. Alternatively, if anyone has been recently and can give recommendations that would also be great. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Hi all, I am looking at buying plane tickets from Hanoi to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to attend the World Cup next year. What do you think will be the best airlines in terms of flight time and costs? I am thinking of Qatar Airways since there is a direct flight from HCMC to Qatar and then Qatar to Rio. Any recommendations on plane ticket agents for international flights are also appreciated - not many agents are familiar with this route. Thank you very much. -g

Hello everyone, I am planning a motorbike tour from Hanoi to Mai Chau all the way to Sa Pa. After Sa Pa I want to go to Ha Giang province but am not sure whether my motorbike would survive the whole trip through the mountains. Therefore, I was thinking to put the bike on a train to Hanoi from Lao Cai and go to Ha Giang by bus. Does anyone know whether it is possible to put the bike on a train and pick it up about a week later at the train station in Hanoi?

I'll be leaving the country in early November with probably somewhere around $1500 in VND. What's the laws regarding how much money you can leave the country with? Also, I still need to figure out if I should just exchange this money to USD before I leave or at a bank back home. I'm waiting to hear back on the rate I would get, but has anyone already done this? Or is it just better to do it hear at a gold shop?

Hi there, With a bunch of newbies coming in on the International School circuit, and the long weekend at the end of August coming up, I thought it would be good to compare notes on our travel tips in this wonderful country. Does anyone have any personal favourite spots they'd like to recommend? Destinations, hotels, anything at all? It seems it's kinda lacking on these boards these days. Personally, I want to shout from the rooftops regarding the Fusion Maia Spa Resort in Da Nang. It i...

Hi I'm looking for ICB totes but they must be FOOD GRADE meaning they have only had "food" like cooking oil, corn syrup etc in them. I've not been able to find any food grade containers only ones that have had chemicals previously so I can't use them. If anyone knows of any food grade icb's can you let me know? Thanks.

I've poked around for an answer to this question... but couldn't find one... if you know of a good thread, please let me know. My question is this: I am leaving Hanoi for a month, and was wondering... should I worry about bagging my clothes or anything to prevent mold in this oh-so-rainy season? Should I be at all worried, or will the stuff I am leaving here be fine? Seems like a silly question maybe, but I don't want to return to a roomful of ruined stuff.
