Where, if so can you buy Huda Beer in Hanoi? Just came back from a quick trip to Da Nang and loved the beer. So planned to buy a case once i was through security, but none of the shops sold it in the new terminal, also I have never seen it here in Hanoi. I know Beer Temple does not sell it. Anyone know?

Hello, I have to make it here to hear your point of view on this terrible thing. You might question why. Long story but the main reason was I wasn't interested and told him to go away. He got pissed and hit me right at the traffic light off Au Co street. I called the police then. But when the cops showed up, he pretended to apologise. Even after that he still texted me nasty messages. I blocked his number and could have let this go. But it's not fair. I mean you guys are warmly welcome to th...

Where the devil is a smoke shop in Ha Noi? Anything close to a western smoke shop, with a good selection of cigarettes, cigars, shisha, and pipe tobacco. I know of fancy liquor stores on almost every street, but not a single smoke shop have I found.

I would like to apply for residency(temporary and ideally permanent). Has anyone does this with the help of a lawyer? I don't mind paying a fee. It would be preferable to running around myself. Any contacts in this area would be appreciated.

Has anyone overstayed a visa recently and paid the fine on exit at the airport? If so how much was the fine and is it still calculated on a per day basis?

So I arrived in Hanoi on Sat. night. When passing through customs I was taken aside and then escorted to the visa office where they explained to me that there had been an error on my visa. I got my visa through the Viet Consulat in Ottawa, Canada. Apparently they put the wrong code done and therefore the visa was incorrect. I had paid about $100usd for a 6 month single entry visa and was now informed that my visa would only be good for a single month due to the error. Not wanting to get into ...

Hi all, I'll be moving to Vietnam next year to work. I'll be working for a local organisation who will organise my work visa. I would like my partner to join me, but we're unmarried, and we're both from the EU (France and the UK) Are there dependent partner/spouse visas? Many thanks!

Hi everyone! So I need to obtain a Criminal records check "Ly lich Tu phap" from the National Center for Criminal Records in Vietnam. I am a Uk citizen who no longer resides in Vietnam. I need this certificate to pass security clearances in my new job in the UK. I have looked through the Vietnamese embassy in the UK's website for advice and it appears that it can be done but you need to authorise someone in Vietnam to do it for you. I have no contacts in Hanoi who could possibly do t...

I work as an English teacher teaching teenagers and adults academic English. I'm trying to find out if there are any English clubs in Hanoi where my students can go to practise their language outside of class. I know there are several cafes that organise this kind of thing in HCMC, but I've never heard of any here. Does anyone know of any? Cheers.

My Vietnamese driving license expired, and they won't renew it because my US license has also expired. The clerk at the Motor Vehicle department said I have to go back to America and renew my license. I can't do that because to get a driving license in a US state, you have to prove residency in that state, and my only residence is here in Viet Nam. Does anyone know of another way I can get a license? This is really important, as my health insurance won't cover me for an accident if I driv...

Does anyone know it there is a place in Hanoi where I can buy Bat Trang ceramics without actually going to Bat Trang? I want to buy a tea set, some bowls, and some dishes, but have no car to go all the way to Bat Trang. I've seen an old post about Hang Da market, but I think that market has turned into Hang Da Galleria, right?
