Swimming education is a hot-button issue in Vietnam. With thousands of drowning deaths occurring each year, it’s something that should be seen as a crucial need. Unfortunately it isn’t. Vu Ha Kim Vy jumps into the deep end, finding answers to this paradox along the way

Coffee Cup HCMC: HiPencil Studio and Café

HiPencil was one of those good ideas that started in University, thought up by a group of seniors staying up late to make claymation videos about the adventures of a pencil, a robot maid and a host of other characters — some humanesque and others not so much. (Think Gumby, creepy pace and all.)

Get a Balance Bike as a FirstBIKE

Balance bikes aren’t only great first bikes for your two to five-year-old — they were the first bikes ever used. But with the pass of centuries, they’re no longer the creaky things from old-timey movies, now they’re of the sturdy kind that the FirstBIKE Balance Bike is made from — although few compare with this new entrant to the Vietnamese market.

Get Your Skates On!

Ice Rink

I first remember visiting Royal City and being amazed to find a 1,280sqm ice rink in Vietnam, not only because of the summer heat but also for the fact it’s inside an underground shopping mall. Wonders will never cease, I thought, especially when I saw everyone but the instructors clinging to the sides, or wobbling along with a plastic penguin for support.

Art Market

Art Market

VinGallery is hosting yet another Art Market on Oct. 12, where attendees are invited to browse paintings, jewellery, photography, sculptures and decorative items, and chat with the artists as well. Kids’ arts-and-crafts activities will keep them occupied while you drain your wallet — although perhaps the attendant raffle will keep it full.

What Makes a Good International School?

Good International School

Vietnam is full of schools claiming to be ‘international’. Just because a school is working in English or because it has the words ‘British’, ’American’, ‘Australian’ or even ‘International’ in its name does not mean it is truly international. So, what is it that truly makes a school ‘international’? And how can parents tell which schools will be the best for the development and education of their children?
