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.

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, can anyone tell me which ATM has the highest maximum cash withdrawal with a European maestro card? It used to be ANZ at Hoan Kiem, but they’re no longer here, it seems. Many thanks in advance!

I teach Japanese and am looking for private space in Cau Giay or Tay Ho district, Hanoi. I have lessons occasionally so just want to use in short time (2 hours) once a week or 2 weeks. Usually I have lessons just for 2 or 3 people so small space is enough. But hope tables, chairs, wifi, air conditioner are equipped and it is quiet. Rooms in local houses are also acceptable for me as long as fee is cheap. (Some offices or buildings also provide temporally meeting rooms but their fee didn’t meet my budget..) Pls let me know if you can suggest a good place.

Hi, I was wondering if anyone knows where you can dispose of batteries responsibly? I've developed quite a stash over the year and was hoping I would stumble across a facility somewhere, but haven't found anything? Alternatively, are they of value to the rubbish collectors or anybody else? Cheers

I'm moving to Hanoi in November. Can you tell me which rental agents have given you exceptional service. I'm looking for a serviced apartment in Ba Dinh or Hai Ba Trung. I remember hearing about one agency to avoid at all cost - anyone remember which one this might be? Cam on!

My Vietnamese wife would like to have my surname, also we were forced to select a Vietnamese name for our daughter (the names we chose for her are sandwiched in the middle of the Vietnamese names so her name is rather long and jumbled). I wish to apply for Australian passports for wife and daughter, and naturally we would all like to have the same family name. I pressume that we would have to change thier names here first, otherwise they will put their existing Vietnamese names on the Australian passports. Could anyone enlighten me about the process of changing the names of my girls so that we all sound like one family.

We are interested in selling our car here (2007 Nissan SUV) but have no idea what price to ask as we don't know much about the used car market. Anyone have any ideas on how to get a sense of used car prices? Are there lots somewhere that people go to in order to shop for used cars?

Considering a job at Kinderworld Education Group. Wanted to check how Singapore International Schools are doing in terms of education quality etc. Seems like the last discussion was a long time ago, in 2012. The reviews were mostly negative. Maybe something has changed since then? Would appreciate new reviews from some teachers and other staff working there. Do you like your job? Are you satisfied? Maybe you have stories from friends and acquaintances who work there. Thank you!
