Hi all. I’m in Hanoi for a few days from 4th July. Does anybody know if it is possible to do a 1 day tour from Hanoi to Halong Bay returning in the evening on the same day. 5th or 6th July 2019 might be a possibility. Thanks
Has anyone got Yellow Fever vaccination recently in Hanoi? All the places that I have been recommended either have stopped or are out of stock (and restocking is slow ...

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.
Hi, I need to get a South African Police Clearance here in Hanoi. Could someone please explain the process. Do I need my residency card first? or does that not matter.

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?
