Best studio of contemporary dance and ballet dance for adults in Hanoi!!!!

I have had more than a year participating both contemporary and ballet dance classes at the studio. The instructor is very talented, dedicated and of high responsibility. I love the way he shows me how to free my soul via every single movement that I used not to be familiar with.

By the way, the studio is nicely decorated with black color and modern lighting system. Whenever we practiced dancing, it was like a real dance performance on stage. Love that so muchhhhhhh <3

I went to see Eric last year with a low back pain that had been affecting me for a few years. On the first session, he performed a very thorough assessment of my condition and explained to me the results of my MRI scans, in ways that I could understand. After the consultation, he used manual techniques to ease my back and I felt so relieved thereafter. Following that session was additional corrective exercise with Miin. She taught me exercises to strengthen my core and other ‘sleeping’ muscles, all tailor-made to my conditions. I feel improved strength and flexibility.
Best thing is I gained so much knowledge about my injuries and I was taught how to manage them whenever I go for business trips and travel. And I sleep so much more peacefully at night too.
This place is highly recommended for those who wants to solve their issues once and for all.

I'd say Calif Fitness is pretty good considering this is the developing world. I agree with others who complain that they sometimes have more PT's than customers. One thing that bothers me is the number of LOUD middle class ladies that use this as their hangout. It's really clean, and the price is not bad if you buy long term(exact same price I paid in the States). A very clean gym!

Just about everything here is made with love and care. Best pho ga in town and the bun bo nam bo is pretty good as well. You won't find better coffee in Hanoi. This family run place attracts mostly locals, but I've also been stopping by at least 3 times a week.

(Tnhvietnam - this place is not defunct, stop by for breakfast and change that status please!)

You should definitely check out their website hanoiapartment.com - most accurate information and photos that I could find among other sources. You'll be provided with the best properties available, honest pros and cons for every property, fair prices. No bullshit, no waste of time, your interests first. And what really made Umove kind of outstanding for me - very warm and personal attitude of mr Ken, who took care of me. All my problems solved with just one call to this gentleman, my special thanks to him :)

jimmya on Vinmec International Hospital
January 20th, 2017 at 5:14 pm

This review is based on my experience as a person who has visited this hospital on many occasions. Firstly it's not an international hospital, Bangkok, hong Kong and manila all have better serviced hospitals than this one. Service is poor, the knowledge of the doctors is limited, there is no queuing system in place in waiting rooms, local vingroup cards don't pay for any packages, medicine or therapy. All in all, the only thing about worth visiting is the pineapple smelling elevators and cleanliness. Staff are rude, unhelpful and basically salespeople trying to make money. Other hospitals for example THU CUC, VIET NHAT, HONG NGOC, are much better.

That is the restaurant that my family is looking for. We are very happy to find the food here true halal and authentic. Kabab was amazing. We became their regular customer either eat there in the weekend or order for delivery. The sitting is nice with greenary. The staff are friendly and english speaking. The owner is very carering of customer, always give good suggestion to choose food. I don't know why people rate this restaurant bad in past. I introduce so many friends and all of them like foods here also.

Mr. An is an amazing lingerie designer with a huge business potential. Ladies: this is the place to go if you want to have lace lingerie made for your specific needs, at a very reasonable price, according to your body, shape and style. Mr. An is extremely professional and perfectionist. He wants the best for his female clients. His motto is quality rather than quantity. He made me two amazing bras and six thongs, based on my personal requests. The result is amazing: extremely comfortable and sexy. If you are looking for high quality lingerie which fits your body and taste, visit ANITA and his owner, Mr An.

I'm so grateful to have found Eric and his brother Sinh.
My first visit was several years ago when I had rotatory cuff surgery and needed PT to regain full motion.
Then I thought that I would never have full range of motion but now can experience full movement.
Secondly, about 1 year ago, I had knee replacement on one leg and surgery on the other and I came to get therapy again. Now it seems that I can walk forever with no problem, how wonderful! During my sessions, I had discussed my scoliosis with both Sinh and Eric. I had been in pain most of my life and Eric suggested we start therapy and exercise to reduce the pain. I really did not think it would change my situation but I was proven wrong.
With each session Eric worked on the muscles and promoted a different style of movement and exercise. I've learned a lot about the many muscles that support the back and with Eric's patience and understanding learned how to keep them healthy and strong. I'm now enjoying swimming, walking and back on my motorbike again.
I highly recommend anyone needing help with a physiotherapist come visit and let Eric and Sinh get you back into a happy pain free life.

Totally great place to chill out any time of day or night (you can even sleep on one of their sofas). Mainly western food & drink - very close to Puku and just off Hang Bong. Open 24 hours!

Lilu14 on Mozart Dental Clinic
January 7th, 2017 at 5:58 am

We lived for three years in Hanoi and had a chance to try various dental places. We also researched braces options for my daughter. There was a place where the dentist had a degree from a long distance school, and one with a Canadian dentist who charged more than in the US for mediocre fillings. My relationship with Mozart dental was combative, and I believe I brought the dentist close to tears once. Yet I give it five stars. Why? Because we are back in the states and my daughter's braces, as assessed by a US orthodontist, are perfect. So while their receptionist drove me insane, and braces popped from time to time, I have to give them credit for excellent orthodontic work, at a third of the cost of US braces. We actually got a discount here because we came with the work done in Hanoi, and my daughter only needs the regular tightening. Thank you Mozart dental, and I hope you remember Sabina fondly, if not her mother...

We have just visited Hanoi and gone on a 3 day-2 night trip to Halong Bay, organised through Miss Ly. It was amazing!! Miss Ly not only came to our hotel and explained about the tour, she also brought us some fruit!

Often what you see on a website isn't as good as the reality, but this tour was even better than we expected, with so much included in the price - the kayaking, Pearl farm, cave, monkeys, as well as delicious food! Peter was an excellent tour guide and we were very satisfied with the tour. We will certainly recommend it to any friends who visit Vietnam as well as to friends who live in Hanoi. It is a family memory for the 4 of us which we will never forget! Thank you, Miss Ly!
