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 .

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...

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!

Dear community, I am a big coffee drinker but my fully automated coffee maker gave up last week. I wasn't worried, since I thought that Punto Italia is just around the corner to have it fixed. But I can't find Punto Italia anymore. Does anyone know either how to find Punto Italia or then, have ideas for good coffee machine repair. My machine is a Melitta Caffeo Solo. Thanks for advice, best, Fabian

So I've seen a lot of posts on here about people renting 3 or 4 bedroom, brand-new houses in good areas for something ridiculous like $500 per month. Admittedly these posts were about 30-40 months old. This may be a stupid question but is it still possible to find deals such as these or is it just that prices have risen since then? I'm guessing that if they are out there, then they won't necessarily be listed on your stock standard real-estate sites. And yes, I have looked online but it seems that to get anything decent you'd have to pay something in the realms of $600-$700. Any advice would be much appreciated.

I have a friend arriving on a flight at 10:30 pm in a few months. I'm going to meet him at the airport. What are the best transport options to/from the airport? I know I can take bus 7 or 17 there, but maybe a taxi would be better (but more expensive.) I've heard there's a lot of ripping off with taxis from the airport, but also that there are some where you just pay a flat rate and they take you anywhere in the city for something like $10. Anyone know what these look like, what company they are, etc.?

I need to renew my US license and I received a letter stating that I have to fill out a form, and get an optician to do a Snellen test, fill out the form and sign it with their professional license number. Has anybody done this? It's not clear as to wether this works for opticians outside of the US. If so, where did you go and did the form filing work?

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 ...

Does anyone of you have any clues about restrictions on foreigners flying to Vietnam in the coming time, say May? My partner has an essential employee letter from his company and covid-19 testing results also issued by his company (negative, of course). Does that suffice to exempt him from the 14-day quarantine upon arrival? Many thanks in advance.

It's crossed my mind just before I leave that I may require proof upon return to Australia that I didn't do anything illegal whilst in Vietnam. Anyone managed to get a police clearance from Vn cops? What happens if you're already in Aus (I leave in a couple of days)? Do I just wander down and pay some dude to give me a paper with a signature? I wasn't working whilst here so I was on tourist visas the whole time.
