tung trang/ guesthouse terminology question

Posted by hfergu on 27/5/2010 at 20:52

Hello, I'm in the process of booking a room at the Tung Trang guesthouse, and since I can't find the info I'm looking for on their website I thought I'd ask here. The guesthouse offers single, double and triple rooms. I'm going with my boyfriend and we'd like to have a double bed (or two single beds). I was originally thinking that we should go for the double room with the impression that it would have a double bed. But now I'm thinking that the single room might be enough to comfortably fit t ...

Leather Shop in Hanoi

Posted by Laki on 27/5/2010 at 17:13

I am toying with returning Stateside soon to travel the country by motorcycle. As such, I will be in need of appropriate dress, and figured it might be more economical to grab what I need while in Vietnam. The next major city I'll have some time in will most likely be Hanoi, so any advice on reliable and honest leather workers/shops there? Also, what type of prices should I anticipate? Lastly, are there any second-hand shops where I might be able to cheap it up another notch and get some han ...

Minsk for sale Hanoi

Posted by Sarah23 on 2/4/2010 at 13:12

I will be arriving in Hanoi on the 7th of April with my Minsk and am looking to sell. It's been a really good bike, and apart from a puncture and small spark plug issue, haven't had any real problems with it. The front wheel, brakes and forks have been replaced with new Honda front forks and a disk brake which greatly improves the stopping power and overall quality of the ride. Asking price is $350 but this is negotiable. Shoot me an email at if you're interested or ...

Visa application over 30 days

Hi, We fly into Hanoi on June 28th. We return home, to Ireland, on August 14th. We will travel south through Vietnam - maybe for 3/4 weeks, and spend the rest of the time in Cambodia and Laos and then fly back into Hanoi for a night or two before our flight home. I have looked up the Vietnam Embassy website and the FAQ section here. My understanding is that you can get a 30 day Visa and that you can extend it when you are out there. Do I just apply for the standard 30 day Visa and then get ...

I will be arriving in Vietnam around 4th June and leaving around 6th July (no plane booked yet). The plane will arrive at and leave from Ho Chi Minh City. I will be travelling with another friend and am reasonably well travelled but have never been to South-East Asia. Just looking for some advice really. The initial plan was to take in Laos and Cambodia as well although I am unsure we'd have enough time to enjoy 3 countries in a month so I think we will stick to just Vietnam. Planning to obviou ...
