Hello, A group of us (7) will be in Hanoi for approximately a month to receive extra training in Trad Medicine. We were wondering if you could recommend a hotel near Lenin Park as the hospital is located on Nguyen Binh Khiem. An alternative we were thinking in terms of accomodation is renting a house or villa around the area. Do you think this is a good idea? Thanks for your input!
Hi, I need a place where I can make a huge amount of color copies, or prints, whatever works best, that can bind them. Preferably wire binding. If so can someone please post this information? Hint, I need to get this done before Tet, so big rush! Thanks Jennifer
Hello all ELT teachers, Am planning to do the CELTA training here in Paris, how difficult is it to pass? Has been some time since I studied grammar, syntax etc. formally, way back in US high school days. Thanks for your feedback on this.
We have heard a rumour that upon leaving Vietnam you can get your tax back from working as an ESL teacher. I've been looking on the internet but everything sounds a bit vague. We've been paying 10% tax while we have been working as non-contracted casual teachers, for approximately 20 hours a week. Is there a specific length of time that you need to work to be entitled to this? ie. 6 months? Is there anywhere you can get official inormation and should my school know about it when I put it to them?

Hi, I have been sent on a mission by a friend back home to buy him a REAL cigarette lighter as used by the american GI's during the war. Can anyone tell me if such a beast exists and if so where I might be able to purchase it at a reasonable price. Also can anyone tell me how I would recognise it as the genuine article ? Any information would be appreciated. Thanks! Scott
Has anyone visited the Ecole Francaise d'Extreme Oriens (EFEO)library at 54 Ngo Ha Hoi? I'm interested in stopping by on a return visit to Ha Noi later this year and will be grateful for any information or comments. There is a short article about the EFEO on Vietnam Pathfinder website. Thanks in advance.
Just moved to Hanoi and I'm looking to buy a Chinese style bike, either new or used. Any recommendations on good places to buy one? And how much should I expect to pay? Thanks so much. I'm a bit clueless about all of this.
