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!

Hi all! I’m currently travelling from ho chi minh to hanoi and need somewhere to watch the final. Is there somewhere that’s going to be open? I know it’s an early morning game but i’m assuming there’s going to be a lot of interest in the game. Thanks!

I did a search and to no avail. I need to buy some decent quality suitcases/luggage. I've been to several places in the Old Quarter (Hang Be street, for example) and the prices were cheap, but so was the quality. The quality was not good enough. Anyone know where I can purchase good a good quality suitcase(s)? One large, and one medium? Thanks in advance to anyone that can help.

Hi Everyone, I've scanned questions regarding a motorbike license but have not seen anything about people who might take the driver's license test or help with acquiring the license itself. Does anybody have contacts that help facilitate the process and a known price? I will be spending time in Hanoi and Lao Cai province. Thank you for your help!

Hi, I was hoping to get more information about the different Apollo centres in Hanoi. I am hoping to find work in Hanoi for November and have been in touch with Apollo. Have any of you got experience with their Hanoi centres? I realise that with big institutions it can be different from one centre to another. Is there a centre that stands out ? Any centres I should avoid ? Thanks ! :-)

I'd like to get my motorbike down to Saigon from Danang. I was wondering whether i could put the motorbike on the train and then fly down myself and go pick it up? (I wanted to avoid a whole day's travel on the train). Does anyone have any experience doing this? or know anything more about it?

Is there any turtle vets in hanoi that I could get to? Specifically, baby common snapping turtles. They have somehow got the end of their tail cut off and I keep trying to put the turtle in fresh water to avoid bacteria. I have found some white spots on their limbs and head so I'm very worried. Hope to the best that somebody answers soon.

Hi all, thank you for taking time to read and answer my question. I am from a small state in the USA and was recently offered a position at an international school in Hanoi, requiring me to move in July. I applied because I am 25, single and looking for adventure at this phase of my life while also not sacrificing finanacial security. I was feeling confident about this decision until speaking with my family who pointed out that I haven’t been to Southeast Asia or loved out of the state (have traveled but never lived elsewhere due to family commitments and school). This would be a big change for me and I was wondering what people’s thoughts were. I would be leaving the comfort of a secure job in a state that I know well for a two year stay in Hanoi. Has anyone else taken this leap of fai...
