    Will be in Hanoi on Sunday, 17 August, and looking for a good place to watch the AFL match. Will be staying in Hoan Kiem Lake district (northern end). Like the occasional drink, and enjoy a crowd that has an idea of AFL.

    Any suggestions?

Regards Matt

    • Hi Matt
      Port Power is not a good start! Nevertheless… we’ll be very pleased to have you get involved with the Swannies in Hanoi. We’ve just finished a mega ANZAC Weekend in Vung Tau.

    I am in Saigon for the weekend and want to know if there is any pubs that may be showing the Crows Vs Demons game on Sunday arvo?

    Any suggestions?

    Cheers, Phil

    • You can try Phatty’s at 46-48 Ton That Thiep Street, District 1 or, in the backpacker area, there is the Spotted Cow at 111 Bui Vien Street, D1.
      On Sunday afternoons, unfortunately, the Vietnam Swans, known for their military-like precision, are more akin to Brown’s Cows. So Swannies may or may not be there.

      But we do have footy training. Normally it is held at RMIT University, District 7 from 2.30-4pm on Saturdays. However, tomorrow 7 May, it will be held at r training this week will be held at Parklands, on Vo Truong Toan St, (just off the Hanoi Hwy after you cross the Saigon Bridge) from 2.30pm.

      No charge for first timers so come on out and meet us there.

    I am from Melbourne and will be 19 years old in February next year
    I am considering coming to Saigon to study at RMIT starting in 2012 after my girlfriend had to return from studying in Melbourne for the past 2 years.

    I was wondering where I could start looking for a some part time work in Saigon. Are there any Australians out there that could use a hand? Im not sure where to start looking but I do have work experience and am ready for almost anything.

    If anyone knows or could offer me some work please get in contact with me.



    • Hi Conrad
      If you’re 19 and come from Melbourne, then you need top get over here as fast as you can so that you can start playing footy with the Vietnam Swans.

      Playing footy in Asia is awesome fun and being a part of the Swannies is even more awesome.

      I presume you will be a full time student when you are here so it would only be part time work that you are looking for?

      Plenty of English teaching if that’s of any interest?

        haha, Yes well I could be your forward or ruck Im 196cm.

        Yes I would expect to be a full time student so it would be PT work.
        I have enquired at a careers and education expo here and from what I heard supported my feeling that qaulifications are needed before you are employed to be and ESL teacher. Would that be right as I would only be coming with VCE as my highest form education.

        I just thought as the Vietnam Swans are a fantastic support basis and have quite a few sponsors there could be contacts that could help a fellow Aussie out with employment.
