So, the word on the street is that Sedona suites has a basketball court. Which is pretty sweet as I like basketball and live right around the corner. Problem= I couldn't (or more specifically my Vietnamese speaking companion) convince the surly security guard to let me in, to have a go. Bummer. Does anyone live there, or have any contacts at Sedona, and would be willing to get me in?? That would pretty well make my day! :) -Ryan
i'm leaving straight after tet. i know villages around ba be where they would love to have my stuff for free but getting a fridge freezer on the back of an old 110 honda for a 200km trip seems a bad idea. If anyone knows any community nearer home [I am in Pho Yen, 50km north of Hanoi - everyone here seems better off than I!]. Repeat I only have motorcycle and quite a bit of heavy stuff.
I am going UK for at least three months and would like to leave some gear in store. if anyone knows of commercial or private possibility i would be grateful. nothing too valuable but it would cost me a lot to set up pots and pans/wardrobe/guitar/bike etc when i return. search showed no results thanks
Hi, I tried finding this, but did not get any search results on here (though some on google) Any ideas about the price for air purifiers? I saw there is an IQ air showroom in Syrena shopping mall, but can't find any prices online. Any ideas about the price for an air purifier for my bedroom? Thanks a lot.
Hi there! I am moving to Hanoi in June with my husband, and I will be about 7.5 months pregnant at that point. I was hoping to have a home birth with a midwife, but I'm not finding a whole lot of info on that just from googling around. Are there midwives who make house calls in Hanoi? If so, where can I find that information? Thanks in advance! Sarah
Is there anyone who can recommend to me: 1. American company in Hanoi (any field is fine, the bigger is better). 2. Vietnamese company produces products for America, also prefer in Hanoi/the North (any product is fine, the bigger is better). This is for a filming project regarding relationship between America & Vietnam. Any lead is appreciated. It will be very helpful if you have direct contact with the person in charge. Thanks, Khuyen
Hi, I've done a search of TNH and the web in the hope of finding any kids karate/martial arts classes but haven't had much luck. There is a bit out their for teenagers but nothing for younger kids. Does anyone know of classes that will accept kids 5 years old? I'm open to any styles as I just want to get my boy in to it for the discipline. Thanks in advance. Scott.
Where can I practise traditional Vietnamese martial arts i.e., Nam Huynh Dao or Nhat Nam? Or Chinese Wing Chun (Ving Tsun) or Vinh Xuan Quyen? (Preferably a Vietnamese or Chinese teacher/master) Please provide full contact details. Many thanks!!
