His trick is to keep minimal money in one wallet. And in the worst case just show them โ€œoh that's all I gotโ€.
That sounds to be a good tip!
I'm not 100% convinced there are many police checks. But that's always better to know before doing it
There were a lot of police checks in Da Nang, especially around Tet and other holidays.
Oh damn, really? I didn't expect
I saw them setup shop almost weekly in certain areas. Don't know about other cities.
Ya and they were pretty petty with the rules. Like turning from a wrong lane or some such small thing.
And of course helmets, license checks, etc.
I think you can also procure a local license not that difficult apparently. Sometimes even a foreign license can be converted. Or some local helpers did it for a fee. I don't personally know anyone, but I know my friend was saying it's certainly possible.
I didn't know about the service to convert the driving license with a fee. Let me have a look at that online! Thanks!
1. showing my non-international license always worked for me in VN and TH. if I had to pay, it was not because of the invalid license.
2. worst case is not about fines by cops. worst case is you are having an accident and your insurance won't pay if they find out you were driving.
What psddezdl said. There was a recent incident of an American girl in Bali who had to pay a hospital bill of $18k because her insurance didn't cover. I'd confirm that with yours before I jump on a bike - especially in a country like VN
Because it's impossible to mute and no matter how deep you are in do not disturb mode, iPhone and Apple Watch will buzz every minute until you read the message. It's insane!!
Theyโ€™re abusing the emergency message system?

Switch to Viettel, theyโ€™ll still spam you with sms but you can mute that
Isn't Americas used to paying thousands of dollars for every scratch?
Interesting ... never got those on Mobifone ๐Ÿค” But maybe it's a new thing?
I did get lots of random SMS crap, but that was easy to mute.
๐Ÿ›ฌ sdimyuesmhgt just arrived in ๐ŸŒ‰ Da Nang, #vietnam
WTF that's insane
If you have a Thai drivers license, which is supposed to be valid in all ASEAN countries, will this be valid in Vietnam from an insurance and legal standpoint?
What does the messages say?
Check SIM Applications to see if there is a way to opt out. But you might need someone VN-speaking to help translating the menu options.
Also the mobile app is pretty good, and had lots of settings too. I don't remember if it has opt out for spam, but it might.
I searched everywhere, I even went to Mobifone shop and ask them turn off everything
they did
still getting ton of sms and those
Did you check SIM Applications though? Many people don't even know what these are ๐Ÿ˜„
I did, you will like it)
it's not even something you can translate
and i;m sure I subscribe myself to more stuff just touching it))
๐Ÿ›ฌ klxbyy just arrived in ๐Ÿœ Hanoi, #vietnam
What do you need as proof of vaccine? Paper copy?
any recommendations for places/sites to book day tours from hanoi (ie halong bay)?
I decided to go to Costa Rica instead
my airBnB host or me in touch with
Bella Linh
Heliotrope Travel
+84 97 694 46 82


I went to Ninh Binh and her price was better than many others I saw and she was friendly and helpful
and if you haven't been to Sapa, consider a multi day trekking trip
GetYourGuide has worked well for me, especially for avoiding scams
cheers โ€” thanks everyone
In case you haven't seen it yet, Covid test no longer required for entry effective 15 May โ€ฆ
Best coworking space in Ho Chi Minh City?
Itโ€™s been a while, but I had a good time working from The Hive

There is also The Hive in district 1 now.

Pop quiz! In Vietnam when you are local, what is the first thing you do in the morning after you just open your eyes?!
Check your phone
Any interesting startup/business events in hcm in the next weeks?
Bridges Da Nang was good. They have a big kitchen with an open working space + gym. It's close to the beach and the manager is from Europe and quite chatty - she can give you a lot of tips. Overall a very relaxed place.
Turn off the alarm and sleep again
And the correct answer is
The first thing what local do is honk 2 times because absolutely :anger:NOTHING:rage::middle_finger:is happening in front of him
smilwdhou of course, the friendly "everything's ok" honk
For mobilephone user, send sms TC to 9241 to cancel the sms ad
Also send HUY to 9220 for the flashing ad
Does TC turn off daily weather report?
I'm not sure, i'm not in Vietnam anymore, but try with HUY
Many years ago, Vietnam kicked out french from their land. Then why the F all websites constantly put their language to F French here?
Lol wut. I lived in Vietnam for 18 months during the pandemic and not once encountered a website set to French that wasnโ€™t a French website. Do you have Chrome set to auto-translate to French? Or try resetting your browser cookies?
set vpn to vietnam, go to booking com in incognito, then we can discuss cookies and reinstalling windows and turning off and on
Lets all debug ungluedโ€™s machine for him that sounds fun
Learn French, or save yourself and install Fedora
it was my browser, somehow it set frfrfrf by defaut.....
Holy baby Jesus! DUDE! THE CURSE IS LIFTED!!! I'M FREEEEE!!!11
Any Vietnam nomads want to meet?
sure, Nha Trang?
Thank you all! I already wrote all the recommendations.
๐Ÿ›ฌ yxyvnskbz just arrived in ๐Ÿฒ Ho Chi Minh City, #vietnam
I just arrived and would love to meet up
Cool! Let's do it!
I'm staying in Meander Saigon hostel and they have co-working space and I'm really impressed with how well organised everything is. Can check out daily rates if you were interested but I know for those who stay in the hostel it's free, including soft beverages pafglalwlfbnfh
Hello :slightly_smiling_face:
Iโ€™m going to Vietnam the 21st I read that I can get visa on arrival for 15days. So I applied for a 30days e-visa on starting 15 days after the 21st of May. A friend told me that after the first 15 days I need to leave the country and come back so the visa is activated. Can I not just stay? The visa is supposed to start the 4th of June
you need to leave the country and enter with the new visa

If anybody is around in HCM who likes to meet, DM me hi
For anyone considering Ho Chi Minh, I highly highly recommend my hostel Meander Saigon.

It's basically right out of a Japanese catalogue. Modern and minimalist decor, super comfy bed, immaculately clean bathrooms and fancy showers and it has a co-working space on a dedicated floor with free hotdesks and designated paid desks. I wasn't planning to stay too long in HCM but now reconsidering given how great it is at such a good price.
I lived in the Meander Hostel in Taipei for a week and it was one the nicest hostels I've been. I guess the one in Ho Chi Minh City will be just as good
Oh didn't know there might be others! Ok now I have a motivation to move ๐Ÿคฃ
fsfqeijr Big place Vietnam. What city are you (gonna be) in bud?
Where are you btw, yxbmacarbyy ?
I'm at Krystalini (to start) if anyone wants to do some speakeasy hopping and drink cool but pricier cocktails tonight in HCMC...
๐Ÿ›ฌ anwdqlofkkua just arrived in ๐Ÿฒ Ho Chi Minh City, #vietnam
The easiest and fastest way is to join an organized visa run to Cambodia in a van which returns to Ho Chi Minh City the same day or you fly to somewhere like Bangkok.

Coworking in Ho Chi Minh. Any recommendations for a quiet coworking space in district 1 or nearby?
Not a coworking, but The Workshop Coffee in D1 is OK for coffee and light work
are they allowing visa extensions yet? or is it still a border run only?
