Hello I need to buy a stable rocking chair for physical therapy purposes. Where can I get one in Hanoi? The only thread I see here is from 2013. Any help is much appreciated! Thanks in advance! Robert
I am new to Hanoi and have recently been offered a teaching job. The problem that I face is how do I get my degree, police clearance and TEFL certificate notarized? I went to my Embassy (RSA) but they advised that they do not have the authority to issue a Apostille document. This question has probably been asked many times before but any help would be much appreciated!

I am an British guy in the UK and I wish to sponsor my partner who is Vietnamese in HCM City to come and study in the UK. To do this he must have £10K in his bank account for about 2 months to show he can afford to be in the UK for the English language course. This is purely for the visa requirements. So it appears simple to transfer funds to his bank account, then before he arrives in the autumn, and after securing the visa, he can send the money back to me. He does not have a bank account here. Having spoken to him and read many threads on here, I can see it is not a simple request to move money in and out of a VN bank. We can prove that I sponsor him and when he gets formally accepted by the college we will have evidence this is where the money will be spent. So do ...
Hi there guys, Just need a opinion about my vietnam gf. I seeing her from last 2 years and things have been up and down. But from last 4 months everything went serious. We fell in love. We are looking forward to get married soon by october. Everything is working excellent. She is coming out my place. Cooking food for me. Looking after my health. Cleaning the house . Talking about our future babies and everything. Littlrly not demanding at all. If i buy her something she admires it but than tells me was not supposed to buy it and need to save money for our future. It really shows how much she loves me and really cares about me BUT Whenever I mention her that i want to talk to her family members she changes the topic. So many times i had to force her On that but because of th...
Which bank offers the best online banking in Vietnam, that can be used from outside of vietnam. Looking for something in English and not to crazy fees. Two I found that seem like an option are vietcombank and techcombank. I am no longer living in Vietnam from 2014, so need something to control from abroad. My wife is Vietnamese so opening an account in her name is not an issue. Reason formlooking for online option, is, that my in-laws are going to retire soon, and I want to be able to control some funds in Vietnam so we can either pay medical bills when needed, or give periodic money, without being burdend by high fees or exchange rates. I,m ok with once every few years bringing cash and deposit in Vietnam, but transfer from Europe in EU would be even better. Anyone have ad...
(See my "Short" history lesson if you don't know about the current currency situation in VN - it's after my question) My question: In September, I'm going back to visit family in the USA for a month, and I need to change well over 100 million VN Dong into US Dollars. Where can I change money for the least loss in the transaction? Because currently no banks will sell large amounts of US Dollars, the only options I can come up with are: 1) Buy US Dollars upon showing my airplane ticket. I heard about this from some colleages. I've tried this successfully once already, at Vietcombank, but they will only change to $500 maximum, and they keep a record, so it can't be done again. When I tried at ANZ Bank, they told me I would have to come back a week before the trip to change up t...
I am trying to find popcorn here and not having luck. The kind you cook on the stovetop with oil until it pops. I tried Lotte and one Seika mart. ANYBODY KNOW A PLACE? I sometimes see it for sale already popped with most likely some sweet crap on it. I HATE sweet crap! PLEASE let me know where I can get some.
TNH - A little help, please. I'm soon to be arriving in Ha Noi on my first trip to VN. A couple weeks later I'll be going from Ha Noi to Ha Giang. I'm having trouble figuring out my best transportation option. Don't want to hire a private driver just for me, that's expensive and piggy. I am concerned that the bus will be cramped (I am very tall), is that true? I've heard about an "executive bus" premium service of some sort, but can't find any real information about it. I've read that the night bus is dangerous, but it's hard to know how much weight to give those stories. Thank you!
