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!

Has anyone used Fado.VN to purchase from overseas? I'm thinking of using it to buy shoes from Amazon (I wear an unusual size not found in Asia).

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?

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.

Anyone know somewhere I can get really nice office furniture? Nice design (modern, minimalist, etc.), and not the usual made-of-wood boxy stuff you see everywhere. Don't know if this stuff even exists here in Vietnam, but maybe... Thanks for any help.

I returned to Hanoi the exact day they closed the border. I flew back to Singapore. My Vietnamese visa cards are not working in the ATMs. (my fault sincee I have never used them in ATMs before). I can pay for large purchases with them but I need cash for daily items. Both banks do not have a representative in Singapore. Any idea how I can get cash ?

Where can I buy a somewhat old fashioned oil lamp in Hanoi? I've only come across one store that sells them and I've seen them in Cong Caphe but they aren't for sale. Does anyone know where I might be able to buy a few? Thank you in advance for your time and response.

Hi All, I know this question has been asked a million times before. So I apologize in advance even though I have done my research to other questions. I was wanting to know if their was an easier way to send money back to my home country from Vietnam. In the past, I have had a difficult time with Western Union and MoneyGram as they allow money to be brought in. Unfortunately, these companies will not let money to be taken out of the country. Any suggestions?
