I'm looking for a dietitian in Hanoi, IE someone to help prepare a healthy meal plan to assist in weight loss, its easy in western countries with so much low GI low Fat foods to find healthy food to eat, but here I struggle, so someone with a knowledge of whats available locally and whats suitable for this city would be fantastic. Also someone with knowledge of certain foods for certain body types, IE some people are carbohydrate intolerant etc... any help/suggestions appreciated...

Hi all, I've been in a relationship with a Vietnamese girl for over 2 years, and now we are engaged. I've been trying to look into how to organise a wedding in around 2018, but she is just as clueless as I am. I still live in the UK, and my fiancée is I'm the process of moving to USA, however she really wants to get married in Vietnam. I've been looking it up a little, and it seems like a real nightmare for a foreigner to marry a girl of Vietnamese origin in Vietnam. However m...

Hey, I am hoping to come to Vietnam (Hanoi) in January to teach English. I have a Bsc, TEFL. My question is about reputable companies. I think I want to have a job lined up before I arrive and have seen lots on the job boards here. Which companies are reputable? What has your experience been with them? I've seen ILA, SET, and a few others too. Many thanks

From what I read on Tnhvietnam, it's not easy to open a new bank account in Hanoi if the individual is not a permanent resident and not employed here. I will be an unemployed, retired expat, but with a steady income of moderate means from the USA. I just communicated with a friend in HCMC, and he is of similar status (unemployed, unmarried, non-citizen,non-permanent resident) and tells me he had no trouble at all opening personal bank accounts in Saigon with both ANZ and HSBC. Can it be...

I'm a retired person living in VN for 5 years. Over the years I wired a lot of my money to VN which I converted to VND. Now I am wondering if I will be able to change it to USD or another currency and transfer it to another country if and when I decide to leave VN. Yesterday a banker at a VN bank told me that if I can prove the source of the money, I can convert it back to USD but she said that the rules are very strict about how you can prove the source of the money. I have records of ...

Looking for some advice regarding getting birth control pills (ideally Yasmin) in Hanoi. Do you need a prescription? If yes, is there somewhere to get a doctors consultation at a reasonable price (the French hospital, sos and family medical practice all sound excessive)? If no prescription necessary, any specific reliable pharmacy or are all ok? Thanks for any help/tips!

I got here a few months ago. I've been using ebay for years. I wanted some old camera equipment--50 year old cheap Russian cameras and 30 year old Nikons, lenses and filters. I ordered about 10 different things, to the tune of about $350 7 weeks ago. One camera and one lens arrived from the Ukraine and Russia after only 3 weeks. The packages had been opened and resealed by the Vietnamese Post office, but the equipment was unscathed. The rest of it, I haven't seen yet--7 weeks do...

What is the longest you waited for a parcel from the states? By USPS. I've been waiting 5 weeks or more now. It's really bugging me now. It's only a small bottle of digestive enzymes-but I want it. What are your horror stories please? Thanks in advance Darryn

I suspect my fiance is cheating on me, but maybe I'm just paranoid. I really need to know the truth before I make what might be the biggest mistake of my life. I thought about going to a private investigator, but the only ones I could find on Google cater to the corporate market, so I assume they are quite pricey. I get paid in dong, not dollars, so I need to go to someone affordable. Does anyone know of a good private eye who speaks English, can be trusted, and works cheap? Thanks.

Has anyone heard of a "foreigner rate" for water bills? We are currently being charged 22,000 VND per cubic meter with 10% tax and our previous 2 bills have come to 900,000 VND and 700,000 VND. I have checked the Hanoi water company's website, and we are being charged the business service rate (the highest possible rate). Does anybody know what this means? I have asked around, and none of my friends (who are in shared housing) are paying this. There are only three of us living in my house a...
