      Public transport to get around the city

      Hanoi Oct 11, 2016 at 4:06 AM

      I am moving to Hanoi in a couple of weeks for work and will need to get around fairly quickly to different areas (teaching in different language centres). I was wondering if the buses are fairly easy and stress free to use a couple of times a day to get around, because I reeeeally don't want to get a bike. Thanks!

    • Halong Bay to Hanoi Airport - Day cruise Halong

      Vietnam Oct 10, 2016 at 3:22 PM

      Has anyone traveled from Halong Bag to Hanoi Airport by car?

      If so, how long did it take you?
      Was there much traffic?

      We have a domestic flight at 21:15, and we can be in Halong on the same day at 11:30 the latest by car.

      So are not sure, when we are there if we have time for a cruise and for the trip back to the airport by 19:30 latest so we can catch the flight at 21:15.

      Thanks in advance

      Visa from Indian Embassy in HCMC

      Ho Chi Minh City Oct 20, 2016 at 10:26 PM

      Hi there, I'm a UK citizen and I had my passport and wallet stolen in HCMC. I've now got an emergency passport and am in the process of getting all the visas I need for my onward journey.

      However I'm a bit confused... My flight back to the UK involves a one and a half hour stop over in Delhi to change planes. On the UK gov site it says that people travelling on an ETD ( emergency passport) need a visa and TWO ETD's - one to enter Delhi and one to leave Delhi. I'm having trouble finding out if this is true as I've had no reply to my emails and can't get through on the phone to the Indian Embassy. Can anyone help?

    • Getting to Cat Ba island

      Cat Ba Aug 28, 2015 at 8:53 PM

      We heard that this is lovely, but a tour operator/travel agency we've been communicating with in Hanoi wrote the following: "Cat Ba island is unrecommended because it’s almost for local people only."
      Why would they say this? Can you recommend a tour that includes Cat Ba?

    • left mobile telephone in Cat Ba

      Cat Ba May 2, 2014 at 3:22 AM

      We left our mobile telephone in the hotel in Cat Ba. The hotel (of which we don't know the name) was situated at the left end of the promenade almost opposite the bridge where the fishermen are (if you are with your back to the water). Next to it was a bigger hotel with balcony rooms. Our hotel had water views, but no balconys. The people did not speak English, they had a baby. Outside their place were a lot a big glass bottles with yellow liquid in, and some substance (dried food?or flowers? inside). There were a lot of these bottles outside. Our mobile Phone was a Polaroid one, the cable for uploading and little cotton bag was left there too. We are looking for someone who could go to this place and find out whether they have found it, and give them our email-address so that they can contact us ( It would be nice if somebody could help us. Lots of thanks beforehand,
