Hi everybody, I have recently purchased a package from ASOS.com in the UK and upon it arriving in Vietnam I have been whacked with a hefty tax charge. Is is only clothing and shoes and they are not designer labels just some standard non branded clothing probably made in Bangladesh. Can you please let me know if this is normal as to total tax bill is approx 35% of the declarable value Total declarable value approx - $ 7.117 M VND Import duties and tax - $1.606 M VND (23%) VAT - $887 k VND (12%) I have asked the import clearance office for a breakdown of the import duties and tax as i think it is too high for the goods I am purchasing. Any info would be much appreciated! Thanks, Justin

who plays violin with jeff beck? the answer is nowhere on you tube despite some rarified playing by the violinist. tabbed as "jeff beck and tal wilkenbucket" - the latter is his bass playing partner but not the violinist. never mind - i don't expect an answer but the "ask" website is now just another search engine

i'm leaving straight after tet. i know villages around ba be where they would love to have my stuff for free but getting a fridge freezer on the back of an old 110 honda for a 200km trip seems a bad idea. If anyone knows any community nearer home [I am in Pho Yen, 50km north of Hanoi - everyone here seems better off than I!]. Repeat I only have motorcycle and quite a bit of heavy stuff.

there was a previous post asking about ballet classes for adults. N space in West Lake has a teacher who is teaching beginner ballet classes. They may be willing to start adult intermediate classes if enough people are interested. For me I just want to move, and twirl and get a good work out for fun. I am not so worried about technique. Anyone else interested ? If we get enough people (4 or 5?) we can start. morning is best for me.

Dear friends, In two weeks I'll be in Vietnam and want to throw a party with friends (expats and locals). We'll have dinner first and after that I'm looking for a party place, from around 10pm to 1pm. Preferably something were I can open a tab for my friends or an open bar. I don't want my friends to pay them themselves. Does anyone know a nice place like a classy bar? Or is it better to go to a Karaoke place? . Thanks!

Hi TNHers, Aussie expat in need of dental work. I’m TERRIFIED. Embarrassingly, I haven’t been to a dentist in years due to a phobia...last time I went in Australia I had my teeth cleaned and burst out crying and couldn’t stop.
