Plastic storage containers

Anybody know where I could find some large-ish plastic storage bins in Hanoi? I'd like to have a few at home for putting away summer clothes during the winter, for example, and for storing a few other things that are rarely used but we still need to keep around. They're much better than cardboard boxes, or stacking things inside a wardrobe. The ideal storage bin would be fairly long and wide, though short enough that it could slide under a bed, nice and out of the way. Though something like this would be just fine too, as they could be stacked in a corner out of the way: http://www.enasco.com/prod/images/products/3E/AC037619l.jpg I've looked in a few supermarkets and nothing caught my eye. I don't often go into the biggest places, like Big C or Metro (and I'd rather not go there unless I'm certain that I'm going to find what I'm looking for when I get there!) Any tips on where I might find some storage bins would be much appreciated.

Short-term, small scale storage facility!

Hi all, We need advice regarding storage around town. We're planning a 4-5 week trip from Hanoi to HCMC before leaving town mid-July. We'll have about 2 large suitcases worth of clothes, books etc that we don't want on the back of our Honda Bonuses, but will need to pick up on our return and take with us to our next destination (wherever that is!). We don't want to rent a room for two months just to store two suitcases and maybe sleep for a couple of nights, but also feel it's a bit of a cheek to check in to a hotel for a night, leave two big bags for over a month, then just spend a night or two there before heading off. We'd really like advice about wether a 'left luuggage' type facility is available - train station, airport, elsewhere? Or any other suggestions that don't involve dumping or lugging the possessions in question! Cheers, Jandi

Posting/mailing items to Vietnam

I am currently living in South Korea and planning to move to Hanoi in April. I will be travelling in between and wanted to post my stuff over (including my netbook and clothes). I have read that customs is pretty strict in Vietnam and was wondering if there is anyway around this. I was just planning to post it from the korean post office which is generally cheap and efficent but now i'm having second thoughts. Also do you think it is safe to post to a pre-booked hotel or are there any storage companies? I couldn't find much when i googled it. If anyone has any suggestions i would be very grateful! Thanks in advance. (Sorry if this has already been posted but i could only find threads about household items)
