After having visited a dozen times, I've now moved to a larger city in Central Vietnam. 

 

* Forget consideration for others. Through open doors at high rise condos, music gets BLASTED. OR kids playing football by the elevators after 9 pm. Or someone decides to burn organic waste next to a primary school. (Fumigating the school, I would expect to get fined a year'S salary AND do time for such conduct back home.

 

* The level of dishonesty is staggering. Rarely will people keep their word. I've met teachers who have been royally effed over by "centers" in polymorph ways. 

 

* Soft skills? Forget it! 

 

* Bring sauces and be very careful whom to give your dry cleaning. Had delicate suits ruined by greedy bastards doing MACHINE WASHING.

 

* There is an energy, a quest for life. And in business, they are hard and tough like ingrown toenails. 

 

Last weekend, I stayed at a aub $ 50 apartment with a kitchenette in a small town named HA TRUNG. The building looked ramshackle but was perfectly okay, if you like to be behind bars. 

 

Closing, you can get delicatessen delivered and buy a long-term VISA, if needed. (Hello Thailand, wake up)!

Please explain!

You make eye contact with the m/c drivers and step into the road at a steady pace while maintaining eye contact. Magically they all miss you (cars and busses as well), while in Thailand they woul

tutsiwarrior, I appreciate the reply and will put it on me list for next time, thanks. I enjoy trains here so looks straight forward getting there.

 

I'm in country now and just got into the mountain village of Sin Ho which is well worth a look if any interest in the ethnic folk that reside and just need to vacate before the Sapa folks get here for tomorrow's market. Pretty much got the town to myself today so happy days.

 

Enjoy

Seems like you were looking for reasons not to make the move and as in any country if that is what you were looking for you will find it.

I did state that it "wasnt such a bad thing" , that the town is geared up to accommodate back-packers and tourists , which is saying that that may be a good reason to move there

2 weeks back I was in a $10/night 4th floor room overlooking Highland coffee/September Park Saigon.

I had 4 large windows looking out over the busy road and a nightclub in the park opposite going until 3am.

Aircon worked perfectly once I rinsed the air filters covered 1/2 deep with dust in the shower.

And one night they evicted my Viet next room neighbour at 4am by throwing her stuff out the windows while her child screamed for an hour.

 

But it was never dull!

Hi

 

That makes you a District 1 fan, thought you would be.

I stayed very near you in the Liberty 3 Greenview, paid more than you you but totally satisfied with the facilities and location.

 

So many bars restaurants with a short stroll. Lively and fun.

Also used to stroll around September Park every day. Nice park.

Communism is a political and economic system in which the major productive resources in a society—such as mines, factories, and farms—are owned by the public or the state, and wealth is divided among citizens equally or according to individual need.

You are of course joking?

Not at all just one of the meanings of Communism another is a political theory derived from Karl Marx, advocating class war and leading to a society in which all property is publicly owned and each person works and is paid according to their abilities and needs.  

A bit like StarTrek. 😂

Have you taken the road from Sin Ho to Tuan Giao? It's 150kms of curves with a tiny straight bit when you cross the river. Came that way yesterday in a pick up but far better suited to a bike. Amazing often single track road up and down mountain sides with great scenery thrown in.

 

Oh to be young again!
