    • 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


      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


      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!

      What to do for my lady's birthday in Hanoi?

      Hanoi May 29, 2014 at 11:13 PM

      Hi there. My girlfriend and I are travelling SE Asia and will be in Hanoi for a few days, one of which will be her birthday. Does anyone know something fun I could take her to see/do? I'm thinking I'd like to take her to a nice restaurant in the evening and maybe go to a bar/club later that night. Any recommendations for good restaurants or clubs?

      As for the day, I'm really not sure where to take her. We could just do some city sightseeing, but that's pretty much what we do everyday, so it doesn't feel very special. Does anyone know somewhere romantic or unique/special that I could take her during the day?

      If it helps, she likes puppies (any dog cafes like in Korea/Japan?), shopping, watching movies (was thinking of taking her to a cinema), reading books, and jewellery.

      I'd really appreciate if anyone could provide any good ideas for me. I'm really not sure how to treat her and make her birthday a special day.

      Thanks so much for your help.

      Hi all have asked a couple of questions about Vietnam for our 2015 hols... Not sure if this has been covered, so will ask again as we are desperate to go to Halong Bay
      Is mid February a good time to visit Hanoi and Halong Bay.... We are desperate to visit Halong but only really at the best time....
      Will it be chilly in the morning and evening in Hanoi and Halong, will it be misty / rainy / windy.....
      We do appreciate that nobody can forecast the weather but it would be useful to have first hand experience of previous weathers in Feb..... We have checked the various web sites on climate and weathers in the area and are tempted to go further south.... Please somebody advise us that Feb is a good time to go.....

    • How would you spend 4 days and 4 nights in Hanoi and Halong Bay?

      Hanoi Mar 3, 2014 at 9:01 PM

      Hello everyone. I am a single male traveler who will divide my 4 days and 4 nights in Hanoi and Halong Bay.

      I have read many posts of Hanoi and Halong Bay. Most people say they disliked Hanoi because it is very noisy and has annoying traffic. However, most reports say that 2 days and 1 night in Halong Bay is more than enough.

      If you would have 4 days and 4 nights, how would you divide your visit?

      A.  Would you spend 1Day/2Night in Hanoi and 3Days/2Nights in Halong Bay? or 

      B.  Would you stay 2Days/3Nights in Hanoi and 2Days/1Night in Halong Bay?

      If you have experienced a Halong Bay cruise for 3Days/2night, Did the cruise sailed different places on the second day and night? Did the captain took a different route to show different landmarks?

      My decision would be made on the responses I get from this forum. Thanks in advance for your suggestions. cool

      I am planning my 1st trip to Vietnam, however, it is going to be a short trip. After doing some research and based on my interests for nature, history and culture, I came with few places to visit in Vietnam, thinking that I will be arriving at Hanoi and making my way south and probably depart from south.

      What are the places should I consider/skip from the list I have? I was looking at the overnight train travel and I am kind of interested doing it at least to one location. As such, this trip could be sometimes in Jan/Feb.

      Any suggestions/tips/information?
