Photo by VnExpress By the time Thien Ngoc Minh Uy’s license was revoked in April 2017, the multilevel marketing company had signed up about 26,700 clients. The number of people waiting to liquidate their agreements with and file complaints against it has fallen to 17,000 this year.

Nam Du Archipelago Off the southwest coast of Vietnam, Nam Du Archipelago boasts 21 unspoiled islands and islets in the Gulf of Thailand, which is still largely a secret to Vietnamese and foreigners alike. After a 7-hour journey from Saigon to Rach Gia City, and a 2-hour speedboat ride to Nam Du Port, visitors can enjoy pristine beaches, seafood fresh off the boat and long, languid afternoons spent swinging in hammocks. The journey doesn't seem too arduous, but for foreigners, like many military-controlled areas across Vietnam, Nam Du is especially difficult, if not impossible to get to. “As far as I know now, [Kien Giang Province] still does not allow foreigners to visit certain islands, like Nam Du,” Mr.Hai from Kien Giang Tourism and Trade Investment Promotion told VnExpress International last February, adding that those with a clear purpose like business or study can request special permission. As far as Vietnam's bureaucracy goes, anyone can … [Read more...] about The most fascinating remote parts of Vietnam (and how to get to them)
Some Vietnamese officials are countering suspicions of their over-the-top personal fortunes with nostalgic evocations of the ‘good ole’ days’ when hard labor for a few extra pennies was the key to wealth. In 2014, Tran Van Truyen, former head of the state inspectorate, came under scrutiny for owning a luxury villa in the southern province of Ben Tre. Addressing the media, Truyen said at that time that he had “worked so hard that my thumbs were rotting” to save up enough money for the villa. In April this year, Nguyen Sy Ky, an anti-corruption official in the Central Highlands province of Dak Lak made headlines when he claimed to have moonlighted as a xe om (motorbike taxi) driver to save up the cash for his luxury US$133,000 residence. In the latest incident of suspicious wealth, Pham Si Quy, director of the Department of Natural Resources and Environment of the northern province of Yen Bai, … [Read more...] about How to get rich?

The more Viet Nam's roads get better, the less people want to travel by train. Plans are therefore being made to get more trains and make the railway system more modern. There is also talk of the railways allowing train passengers travelling between China and Viet Nam to have their passports stamped on the train. Another is to offer special deals for people who want to send large amounts of cargo by rail. HCM CITY (VNS) — The modernisation of Viet Nam's railway system is projected to cost about US$5.1 billion, experts said during an event on detailed plans to upgrade the 1,726 km stretch of the North-South railway from Ha Noi to HCM City. The plan, introduced to the public on September 18 by the Viet Nam Railway Authority (VNRA), outlined major projects to be carried out until 2030.
