Having a daily companion/guide

by martyncs

I am an elderly man (widower)traveling alone. Is it possible to enlist the aid of a Vietnamese lady of any age to act as a paid companion/guide to show me the sights of Hanoi ?
I anticipate 9am to 5pm daily and would obviously be prepared to pay a fee as well as paying transport amd meal costs.
Although elderly I am perfectly fit and do not requier a nursemaid. lol.
Or is this service considered entirely inappropriate ?

I believe there is a group of university students in Ha Noi who volunteer as guides to do just that. Search member name Daawgon and send him an email to get contact information. He's used them a number of times and is a big promoter of the group.

There operation is actually callled "Hanoi Kids"..Connected with them in late January this past year and it added a whole lot to one of the days that I spent enjoying Ha Noi..

They dont accept fees in spite of trying,its solely a volunteer effort..

To Mike and Greg . \
Many thanks for your replies. Sorry about the delay but the VT Verification Number was sent to my mobile and I can't use it at home as I live in a valley. I had to go out to get the number !
I have noted your advice and will take it up.
Many thanks.

Travel Tips for Hanoi

Money Changer - AGRI BANK

by chirpy383

I changed SGD to Vietnamese Dong at Hanoi Airport. The rates is pretty decent. For 1SGD, you get VND9200. There is a few money changer at the airport after the gate. Check out all and compare the rates. Just to assure VTers that they give decent rates. : )

Just visiting!

by FishyLalita

Camping sort of bags. Anything that'll fit a tube of mosqitoe/leech repelant. Nah, not in Hanoi. This isn't Sapa, or Cuc Phuong. It's HANOI. It's practically the city of Vietnam, (and Ho Chi Minh, but anyway) so it's gonna be a busy day! Bring normal bags like you're going on a normal trip. Clothes depends on weather. Shoes, sandals are always a plus. And umbrellas are essential, rainy or hot. It's not like you'll nead a bandaid after scraping your knee from crossing the road! If you have the skills to cross you'll have no problem. Uh..... film? Cameras? Duh........! But batteries aren't like looking for needles in haystacks. Vietnamese love tourists. Looking for beaches? Head to Ha Long, even better: Hoi An or Da Nang. I would have a picture of a bag but for some reason that ain't workin' out!

La Thanh Street

by King_Golo

Hanoi is full of places of interest for tourists, yet I believe that one of the best things you can do there is looking further than at the standard sights. For instance, driving along some streets will give you an insight into daily Hanoian life with all its facets. A particularly interesting street to drive along (by bike or motorbike) is La Thanh Street. Starting from near the junction of Dai Co Viet Road and Le Duan Road, it leads 5kms through several less known parts of the city all of which are really great to see Vietnamese daily life. There are the obvious fruit vendors next to houses in which metals are processed. There are outdoor food stalls almost on the street that make it smell of fried spring rolls. There are tiny kiosks next to carpenters. Actually, a long part of the street is dedicated only to wood processing, making the air smell of freshly cut wood. La Thanh Street's only disadvantage is its role as one of Hanoi's main road links. Although a rather narrow street, it always seems to be full of traffic. If you go there remember to be careful as the traffic is not easy to survive unharmed?

draft beer at Vietnam's best

by richiecdisc about Bia Hoi Ha Noi

Bia hoi is the draft version of Vietnam’s beer and is thus the freshest example of the style you will find. Not only is it generally tastier but it is also much cheaper. In fact, it is only 3,5000 dong per glass (less than a quarter!) but that is not the best part of these bia hoi joints. What you really get is to experience the local hanging out scene. It is much like the coffee houses where mostly a male clientele sit around and share their daily experiences over a beer. You can get cheap snacks like peanuts too. It is great fun cheap entertainment and something not to be missed. These places are very casual but if you are a woman, even with a male, I would recommend dressing down quite a bit as to not attract too much attention.

Take a ride on a motorcycle

by dunearn20

Within the town centre you can easily ask people for a ride on their motorbike. This gives them an extra pocket money. For ca. 6000 DONG (US 0,40) you go everywhere whithin ca 4 KM on the backseat. Very fast and efficient. This service is called: SE HOMME, that´s what you must ask for.
