Where can I buy a somewhat old fashioned oil lamp in Hanoi? I've only come across one store that sells them and I've seen them in Cong Caphe but they aren't for sale. Does anyone know where I might be able to buy a few? Thank you in advance for your time and response.

Hi All, I know this question has been asked a million times before. So I apologize in advance even though I have done my research to other questions. I was wanting to know if their was an easier way to send money back to my home country from Vietnam. In the past, I have had a difficult time with Western Union and MoneyGram as they allow money to be brought in. Unfortunately, these companies will not let money to be taken out of the country. Any suggestions?

Has anyone had shipped to Hanoi a small card, like a driver's license, using USPS? I used Fed Ex 10 years ago and it cost $60 and USPS is much cheaper.

Hanoians oi! I have officially moved back to chicago and miss my motorbike, not to mention the price at which I could've bought a nice used one in Hanoi! Is there anyway that I could get one shipped over here- what are the costs of shipping? Or, does anyone know where to find a similar Honda (general gear shifting kind- NOT the SCOOTERS!) in the states? Thanks so much. Missing many of you! Jessica-

I have been off mine for a little but need a refill for some days i need the extra focus. Do the street pharmacies carry anything that would be an equivalent? Thanks

Hello! My family is spending the Christmas holidays around the Old Quarter. We're planning to attend the Christmas Eve mass at St. Joseph's Cathedral, but I want to know if at least one mass on 24 or 25 December in that church is in English. Otherwise, do you have any other churches for English masses that you'd like to suggest? Places to go to for touring are also welcome! Thanks!

Heading home ... and looking to send about 10 medium/large boxes (probably about 15-30kg per box) of personal effects (books, kitchen stuff, DVDs, clothes, etc.), no furniture. Does anyone have any good experience of shipping companies that will do this (and not cost more than the contents are worth)? Speed is not an issue, 3 months by surface (sea) would be fine. I asked at the Post Office (at Ho Hoan Kiem), but they said VND5,850,000 (US$250) for a 20Kg box. That was the cheapest rate!

Hi. My employer has threaten to cancel my visa that they got for me. She and I had signed for a probationary contract that's supposed to take effect on dec 1 2019, now when I talk to my employer she's offering a probationary period that we did not discuss before and not included in the contract. Consequently, I negotiated for them to honor the original contract we both signed for. And now, she wishes to terminate it unilaterally and cancel my visa. She told me to go to the immigration office but I refused to do so. May I ask your opinion, suggestions about this? Thanks for your reply
