    • Permanent hair Straightening

      Ho Chi Minh City Jul 17, 2014 at 4:50 AM

      I am going to HCMC in two weeks and I would like to do a permanent hair straightening like the brazilian blowout, keratin treatment, rebounding, japanese treatment.

      I took a look at some info online but the only one I found was the Concept Coiffure that looks top of the line but the price is definitely above my budget.

      Does anybody has any other options that would cost $100 ish (or less)?

      Thank you so much in advance!

    • Any locals interested in being a tour guide?

      Ho Chi Minh City Jul 16, 2014 at 2:06 AM

      Hello,

      I am planning to visit Saigon within couple of weeks or so. I am interested in doing a simple and non-commercial city tour just for a day or two. I was wondering if there is any english speaking friendly local, with some knowledge about the place and the culture, interested in showing me around in a motorbike during their free time :). I can also help with renting a bike if needed and take care of the travel expenses.

      Thanks :)

    • How busy will be it during Jul/Aug around Central Vietnam?

      Vietnam Jun 29, 2014 at 2:42 AM

      Hello!

      I am just planning a trip for about a week or so to be around Da Nang, Hue and Hoi An during this July or so. Is that a peak season for tourism or any long holidays around that time? I am considering to spend a day or 2 at Saigon and make my way to Da Nang and other places. I know it will be very short to cover all those places, but if it is difficult, then I might skip Hue. I am also planning on see My Son.

      Anyone else going around that time? I am waiting on my friends, but if they can't make it I will be doing it solo, so interested meeting other travelers/locals.

      Thank you!

    • Is it worth going to Halong Bay?

      Vietnam Jul 13, 2014 at 7:15 PM

      I have heard very mixed reports of HB. Is it VERY touristy and a rip off or a must do? Any tips and advice for a first time visitor? I do not want to do it on a really cheap budget. Want to stay over night.

    • Train from kunming to lao-Cai

      by rachel269 Online Now Apr 28, 2008 at 7:07 AM

      What with China making it very tricky to get a 1 month visa during and just aftre the Olympics they are asking for entry and exit tickets to and from China.

      Does anyone know if it is possible to pre book a ticket from China to Vietnam (confimation to be used to get Chinese visa), i guess Kunming - Lao-Cai is a well worn route?

      Thanks a lot!

    • Advice needed!

      by Baj Online Now Nov 6, 2003 at 8:49 AM

      Not being a hardened traveller I am looking for some practical advice. I'm off to Lao Cai, Vietnam, next week to assist on some film shoots, staying in the households we are filming in. Has anyone any advice as to useful things to take, wear etc? I understand the weather is humid and damp? As we will be trekking about a bit, with cameras, I need to be as comfortable as possible so as not to effect filming. Thanks to anyone that can help. x
