Hi all! I am currently looking for someone that lives in Vietnam, in Ho Chi Minh City (or nearby) that owns a drone that can help me with filming some aerial shots. I will pay for your services. I will be in Vietnam in the first week of November. Please let me know if you know anyone who owns a drone or if this is you! Much appreciated!
HansPegasso replied on September 22, 2014 with:
I noticed that you got advice for it, I hope it will serve you. Just my story: 4 years ago I needed aerial pictures for the development of a golf resort. I contacted a Ha Noi company and they quoted me with the cost for a real helicopter. The picture taking itselfes would be done with an R/C!

My partner has just been to Vietnam for an extended trip. He is rather keen to relocate there. I am not so sure. it doesn't help that I haven't been there yet! I have been reading a lot on the forum and other places. I am thinking we would be best to go for 6 months or similar to see how we really feel and what we would busy ourselves doing. From a lot of what I read here and other places on the internet - seems western men are welcome with open arms.. What about old western women??? At my age I really can't be fussed with coping with young 20-30 year old all over my partner LOLOL - now that IS a joke. I don't mean to offend. Basically I want to know how welcoming is it for an older woman. I intend to TRY to learn the language and really want to experience the culture - not just be a tourist. We are considering moving to enhance and change our lifestyle - not try and live an Aussie lifestyle in a foreign country. Of course its about cost too - I keep reading everywhere that retiring in Asia - our limited funds will go a lot further and have a better quality of life. Subjective I know... but any input on life for a 50+ western woman in Vietnam.

ALL good comment, VN people are awesome,very kind and open no judegmental attitudes, older people are respected not rejected the big issue may be rubbish in the street, but you will see it is always gone the next morning there is no rubbish trucks like Aus. it's really safe at night unless you look hard for trouble. When you get there take a map from the hotel, put it in your pocket and get lost, when you want to go home , refer to the map ask some one for help (sin loi) excuse me at the end ( Cammon) thank you Tam biet) good by ( wriiten as they sound). The xe om and cyclo riders are a pain for single guys not looking for sex as they ALWAYS want to take you for boom boom. I intend being in HCMc in Feb 15' this time to stay, hopefully you love it as much as I do, hen gup lai ( see you later )

You probably won't believe what I'm gonna say but in my case, i found horoscopes and chinese zodiac signs are completely right. It helps me understand my husband a lot and lucky for me, his horoscopes says all the good things about him. In Chinese zodiac, it even predicts if one couple gonna break up or no. My husband used to get married before he met me once. And his life is totally right like in the book predict. What I'm trying to say is horoscopes give me a lot of confidence in understand my husband and people around. I just need to know their birthday and I can predict a lit bit how they tend to act in life. It's something we can hold on to in a life that we never know what gonna happen. But more important than anything, I think if your marriage is 17 years I'm sure you guys have a very strong relationship and hard to break up. So don't worry about that. And in my opinion, bad girls are only at places like bars and mostly in Ho Chi Minh City. And you can tell from the way they dress. I wouldn't worry much because those girls are not very good with english and tend to find rich Vietnamese men though, not western guys.
