Hi all guy,
- Ho Chi Minh Escort Review Dated Added: Thu Jun 05 2008 Submitted by: Anon
I am a overseas Vietnamese who lives Europe. I am trying to give you some information about Vietnam and especially about Ho Chi Minh as I often go to Vietnam for business trip.
Firstly You have to know that Vietnam is not the best place in Asia for western guy to find sex. However concerning the quality of girls it appears than in Vietnam girls are more pretty than in Thailand and Filipino
In Ho Chi Minh , place to find hookers are night club. But you have to know that there are 3 sorts of night club:
1-Club where most of customers are overseas Vietnamese (Vietnamese living abroad) and where girls are the most pretty.
2-Club where most customers are western people and where girls are cheaper and less pretty.
Yes that can be amazing, Overseas Vietnamese guy have a lot of success with local girls because unfortunately they spend too much money for girls.
In Night club as GOSSIP (Tran Hung Dao Street), Volcano (Cong Quynh Street), Palace (Nguyen Hue Street), there are a lot of hookers but it is very difficult to differentiate hookers and not hookers. Generally Hookers stand near the bar.
You have to know that drink in this sort of club is expensive. That means 5USD a beer. But most of customers have bottle!!!! One bottle cost is average from 70 to 150 usd. Price of hookers is 100 usd for short time.
In night club for western go to APOCALYPSE, the atmosphere is different. A lot of western customer. Lot of hookers but not smart. Price of hookers is average 50 USD for about 3 hours.
A big problem in Ho chi minh is in Hotel with 3 stars or more you cant take a girl in your room, you have to book another room for her. Because it is forbidden for foreign guy to sleep with a local girls. In Hotel with less than 3 stars, no problem.
Concerning Massage parlor, ticket price for one hour is average 8 usd but most of girls will give you just an hand job happy end. If lucky can have BJ. For western guy forget karaoke (or bia om).
For western guy you can find pretty girl in the bar of new world hotel but price is high. Short time 100 USD and LT minimum 150 USD.
In Vietnam the best way is to find a girl friend. And that will be free. (Review # 24044)

In Vietnam, generally speaking, do not go for the street girls. They are mostly drug addicts or who have been thrown out of better places like dancing clubs in hotels, bars, karaoke...due to their declines in physical appearance. Yes, many girls on the street look quite young (especially to the eye of the Westerners). Moreover, 99.9% of the time you will get into trouble with street girls if you go with them to their places. (Review # 22150)
Do not go with them to your places. That is the first rule. Second, you should also avoid karaoke bar. These places are set up only for local guys, who must come in group and often know the owners. If you go by yourself, you will certainly be robbed. Do not also go to massage parlors, except the ones in mid-range and expensive hotels. These parlors are safe. But they will provide only (good) massage and a hand job (if you tip USD20).
The only place for you to go to get some good action is the high-end night clubs in the center of Saigon. Here you'll meet nice free lance girls and can negotiate the price. The typical price for these girls are $50 for a short time and 100-150 for overnight. And you should bring the girls back to your hotels. If you don't want to pay much, you should stay around the pack packer area in Pham Ngu Lao and De Tham streets.
Girls here are of less quality but of course much cheaper. Also bring them to your rooms. In general, the sex scene in Vietnam is not very exciting and professional unless you can spend more time there to get to know a few local friends or expats. Nonetheless, stick to tourist area and good hotels, you'll find very what you are looking for. It is just not a place for you to wander out and explore yourself on the street at night.

Beware. Karaoke bars in Hanoi are scam places run by criminals. You are shown to a room where 2 girls will join you just to sing karaoke - the waiters bring lots of food that you did not order. The girls will open the food packets & eat a bit. Then after 1 hour you will get a bill for over 100 us dollars. The girls disappear & two Vietnamese criminals will block your exit until you have paid the bill. You could try to push your way out but you do not know what is down the stairs (remember the bar is usually upstairs). The police are corrupt & on the make so it's a waste of time contacting them. (Review # 19516)
The bar we went to was Phuong Nam karaoke bar at 38 Nam Ngu in Hanoi. All karaoke bars are the same, run by demented little criminals. You have been warned. In fact the Vietnamese seem to want foreign money but don't like foreigners - give it a miss. More information. May 2007. In Hanoi it is law that bars / restaurants close at 10pm - even street lights are switched off. It is like an unofficial curfew.
If you are on the streets after 10pm you are likely to be approached, indeed surrounded, by criminal types both on foot & motorcycle, it is very dark; they will try to rob you possibly by pretending to be friendly & putting their hands on you whilst one of them attempts to get inside your bag - or your bag may be just snatched. I have seen both happen. Under these circumstances you are at the mercy of these demented, illiterate, pathetic little criminals. Another scam is that a girl on a motorcycle will offer you sex ' at her place ' - she will take you to a seedy little guest house where she has criminal friends & there you will be robbed.
Even when a small room you are in with her you will be robbed - example she might encourage you to take a shower & then go thru your bag or even if you are on a bed & having a massage she will ensure that you are face down & someone will come into the room on all fours and ransack your bag. Then she will rush you out of the hotel to the point of being aggressive & rude so you don't notice the theft.
This scam happens in both Hanoi and Saigon. The difference is that Saigon shuts down at midnight (Hanoi shuts at 10pm). The bottom line is that after these curfew hours you are fair game for the criminal elements in Vietnam, and believe me the country is full of them. Take my advice, do not go to Vietnam if you want 'female company'. Go to Thailand or Cambodia.

I stayed in Dong Hoi city, Quang Binh province in central of Vietnam for 4 days. It was so excited and impressive for me as a tourist. We have 4 people stayed in 2 rooms in Hoa Binh hotel. It is excited because there is a massage nearby the hotel. All the girl there were in very short skirt and two string bra doing massage. Only US$3 for Vietnamese and US$5 for foreigners for the ticket. You can do anything you like in the room. Playing tits and BJ & HJ for free. If you like, just give her $2 - 3. It is very cheap in the center of Vietnam. (Review # 16927)
After the massage, I asked her to my room for only $10/night. She was so cute and sexy with high thump. A very nice ass which made me really wet. We fucking, licking 3 times at that night. exciting! She played very well, jump & jump over my cock. One thing very impressive is that she is thirsty of my cum. She suck and ate all my cumming until the final drop.
Pls, do not forget to visit Dong Hoi-Quangbinh when visiting Vietnam.

- Nha Trang Travel Report Dated Added: Fri Jan 27 2006 Submitted by: Horny Sailor
Working on a cruise ship I went there mid November of 2005. Very nice place, nice beach. I was told that Nha Trang is where a lot of high ranking member of the communist party have summer houses where they get some rest. As soon as I got off the ship I was overwhelmed by a crowd of all kind, cab driver, street sellers, etc. That is one thing with Vietnam, anywhere else I went, China, Japan and Taiwan.
In some places most people leave you alone, but in Vietnam, they all want to sell you something, a product or a service and it can get really fucking annoying! So I got in that cab and gestured what I wanted, “girl, sex and good time”. The cab driver did'nt really understand, he got his buddy on a motorbike to translate it for him. The bike dude turned out to speak very good English so I explained what I wanted. We followed him with the cab and we drove in town to a small but clean hotel, once inside I was greeted by the owner, really nice, and the bike dude explained that it was $10USD for the room and $30USD for the girl.
Ten minutes later a pretty Vietnamese girl showed up, she must have been 19-20 years old, really cute. I was told he could get another one if I didn’t like her, but she was just fine, so we went up, we had a shower, played around, she was really hot, only downside is that she had the biggest fucking bush you could imagine, that is one thing in Asia, I don’t think it’s custom for girls to shave, but overall she was a 8 out of 10.
She sucked it with no condoms, and I fucked her anyway I wanted, with a condom of course, you got to be out of your fucking mind to eat or fuck with no rubber in Asia like I read in this website sometimes. I did’nt mean to brag, but I have a fairly sized dick and she was kinda scared of it, it barely fitted in there, really tight! So we fucked, no rush, the whole experience lasted about an hour, really nice.
The cab driver waited outside, got back in and drove off to the beach to be harassed some more by fucking street vendors. (Review # 13847)

Working on a cruise ship I went there early November of this year. It’s about an hour and a half from Ho Chi Minh (Saigon) and it’s the closest point for a cruise ship to dock next to Saigon. The girls in Vung Tau look so good, very attractive and friendly. I got a cab and ask for a red light area, the driver didn’t speak much english as usual so I drove around wasting my money. I ended walking around but I did’nt see any sign of action.
One thing with Vietnam in general is that everybody is offering you fucking a bike ride, cigarettes or a painting etc. So I took advantage of that and got a ride with a guy on his bike. He drove me off to a massage place and inside was a lots of good looking girls. $10 US for an hour, plus extra, but that is between you and the girl, for an extra $10USD I got a nice blowjob and tits job. Very nice indeed, she even let me take her pictures. (Review # 13846)

I was robbed of US $300 by a shemale on the streets of Ho Chi Minh City. I had just started walking after inquiring in a beer bar with girls. She spotted me, came on a motorbike and said I could have sex with her for US $20.
She looked middle aged. I sat behind her on the bike and she took me to shady hotel after a long ride thru main roads and narrow lanes which I then realised for me was "not a road to remember" in that place.
She made me pay at the hotel's reception in advance. Once in the room, she immediately started undressing me in a hurry but remained clothed herself. Then she asked me to take a shower. When I left the door open and came out soon, she insisted I take a full bath and closed the door. It was at this time she robbed US $300 from my purse in my trouser lying in the room. Then she said she wanted to use the toilet and latched the door once while I waited outside. (Review # 13790)
Once out, she started giving me a blow job but didn't remove her clothes. When I insisted she made a signal that which I understood. She's having her period. I asked her to remove her top. It was only then that I realised that she was not a female.
Frustrated, I wanted to leave to which she readily agreed and even agreed to pay me $10 back. When I tried to check the cash in my purse, she screamed in fear saying that we should leave asap as the police was on rounds. She pulled my hand and took me outside the hotel where another man would ride me back to the place I wanted to go.
Only after reaching my hotel I did realise that the street smart shemale had robbed me of US $300 while I was in the toilet. I was so frustrated and being in that state, I had not even bothered to note the name of the hotel nor the vehicles number. I tried to search for that place but couldn't as she had ensured that by taking me round and round.
I had made a complete fool of myself and lost a lot of money too. Please be careful on the streets of Ho Chi Minh City. There are lots of poverty there and people can go to any extent to cheat and rob you especially foreigners like me.

The quality of the girls is pretty good but that is the only good thing about the girls. There are street girls everywhere and Fortuna is pretty good. They are all thieves and scam artist that are asking 5 times the prices anywhere else in Asia. Be sure to whore proof your room well, including you underwear, because they will steal that too. You will agree on a price and when you pay them they will always bitch that it is not enough. So just boot them out of the room with no tip.
Beware of the Police. Any time the Police are involved in anything it will cost you a minimum of a $50 bribe to get rid of them. Also beware of Taxi drivers. Don’t ever leave your baggage in the taxi while you check into a hotel. The driver will simply take off with it. I have heard two stories about taxi drivers taking the person into the country and mugging them. The country is however, Beautiful.

- Dalat Escort Review Dated Added: Sun Dec 11 2005 Submitted by:
Hi guys... Here are some comments on my experience in Dalat. I have been in Vietnam for more than 2 years, so I can say I have already some experience. Concerning Dalat, first, it will be difficult to find a girl on the way because not a lot of discreet venues. Nevertheless, if you are walking at the beginning of the night, some mototaxi will ask you if you are looking for BOUM BOUM. By curiosity, I went, but with one who drove me near the crazy house in a dark street. On the way, I was asking him (all in Vietnamese), how much it will be to get a girl for the night? He said 300.000 VND (about 20 USD). It seemed a good deal. There, you will enter into a house and the nightmare will begin.
First, girls are not so beautiful (how is it possible?). So I explain in Vietnamese (nobody speaks English) what I want. I am going in a small room at the second floor where they provide me a girl, and also some food and drinks that I haven t been requesting. I refused directly, but because the girl told me that she will have problems if we don't consume, she began to open many things. In my mind, I was thinking that it will cost some money, but not too much. So I make arrangement with the girl to bring her to my house for the night, for a total of 300.000 VND. So it seemed okay. After some minutes, I told her that we should go. She said okay and asked me already 100.000 VND in advance. Okay. Time to pay for candies and 3 Heineken: 471.000 VND... OUCH!! Directly, I refused (in my estimation, the real cost was 75.000 VND). After a long arrangement, I paid 300.000 VND for all these small things.
So time to go... and the best for the end... just before leaving with the girl, they begin to say that the girl has to return before 11 o'clock (now it was 8:45). I refused again. The arrangement was for the night. They disagreed. I have to pay 100 USD for the night (from midnight to 6 am). Crazy! The girl was not so beautiful, only fuckable. I began to discuss again in Vietnamese with them for a long time, but no way. So I preferred to return home alone, before the story got really nasty (7 angry Vietnamese, and me).
So, if you are seeking for sex in Dalat, follow my advice... don t go around in the area of the crazy house, or it will be the same, and even worse if you don t speak Vietnamese. The best thing to do is to wait until you travel to another city. I know it can be hard, but... Or maybe you can look for some massages, or go to the nightclub and try to get one by yourself.

I have been in Hanoi in 2004 for some months. If you are a woman, email to firstname.lastname@example.org for massage at your hotel. The price is about $5 per hour. Massager is a young man, good looking and polite. If you order body massage, he do it very good. He hold you and make you feel good. I ask about real sex, he only smiles. But I think you get him if you try.

Vietnam police crackdown on drugs, prostitution
Early June, 2005
Vietnam’s criminal police will track down dangerous criminals and raid hotbeds of illegal criminal activity nationwide from now until August 19, said a senior police officer.
Major General Pham Xuan Quac, Head of the Criminal Police Department, said police have coordinated with other crime forces to conduct massive raids on places where illegal activities, such as the production, sale and use of ecstasy, have been taking place.
Along with police raids, firm measures have been taken such as regular inspections of suspected ecstasy dens, especially in the hotel system, another official said.
Next week, taskforces will be dispatched to key areas in Ho Chi Minh City, Vung Tau city, Dong Nai province in the south, Khanh Hoa, Nghe An and Thanh Hoa provinces in the central region, and Ha Noi, Hai Phong city and Quang Ninh province in the north, to uncover and break up any drug dens.
Vietnam recently stopped granting licenses for new bars, karaoke restaurants and dance halls, which are often used as fronts for illegal activities.
Narcotics squads and criminal police have recently uncovered a number of drug-trafficking and dealing rings, arrested ringleaders, and closed down numerous brothels and drug dens which have been disguised as bars, hotels or karaoke restaurants.

Hanoi police bust Korean-run prostitution ring, late May 2005.
Hanoi police have detained a South Korean accused of running a prostitution ring catering to South Korean businesmen and tourists, state media reported today. The 46-year-old man was detained as he boarded a flight to Seoul yesterday for questioning about sex trade at a karaoke lounge he owns in the capital, the Hanoi Police-run An Ninh Thu Do reported.
Police detained at least 50 women on Saturday in a crackdown on rampant prostitution, just a few days after the government ordered "social evils" such as commercial sex and drugs stamped out and suspended the issue of new licences for bars and clubs.
Prostitution is illegal but widespread in Vietnam, where personal income has been rising as the communist government liberalises the economy. This week police said they sent a singer/actress to a re-education camp on evidence she was involved in a high-class call girl ring charging $500 to $1 000. -

I was in Hanoi last November on business when one of the other guests I was staying with at the Hilton suggested I try a place called the Fortuna Hotel. It was a 20 minutes taxi ride from the Hilton to the Fortuna but i was not disappointed when i arrived. Downstairs is a "KTV" bar where 50 to 60 girls greet you when you enter the bar. No believe me when I say these are beautiful women. Not one was less than a 7 in my book. A mama-san will seat you and bring the women over to you and ask you if you would like one to join you. It is 10 USD to have a girl sit with you for 1 hour and 50 USD to have her all night. If you are ever in Hanoi make sure you make a visit to this place.

When you're walking into any club, don't bother stop at the ticket booth to get ticket. Walk right in, if anybody stop you then tell them you will be purchasing a bottle of wine for today. Don't worry, they're from 40-90 CAD. That will save you money on drink on the long run, plus you can keep it at the bar when you're not finish the whole bottle, no problem. Plus you look so much cooler too... ~~
~~The girls in the night club will usually ask you to go somewhere from 100 CAD to 100 USD for the whole night. If you wanted for an hour then 20 USD is reasonable. Since we are dealing with human here so if she's not happy with her pay then her performance won't be that good. (You get for what you paid for right). I'll usually stay with 100 CAD and at the end give her like 50,000 for her fare home (if you like her and would like to see her again). Of course you have to pay for hotel. ~~
~~Usually all the hotel will ask you to provide ID, don't worry ask the girl to sign the guarantee for you since you don't want to bring your ID with you. Don't worry about the cop, since she signed the waiver for you, and won't take off while you in the shower because the hotel has her ID and will not her leave with out informing you (prety safe in this type of situation I guess). There was a night that I let the girl go home early, the reception actually called up to ask me if I authorize her to leave yet... (pretty cool, I guess)~~
~~~~These are hard-core girl, check them out, if they're not there, just simply walk up to any one of them and ask "are you available tonight" Get her a drink and start talking about the price. If you are Foreigner then you DON'T even have to ask, they will approach you... hihihi...~~
~~A few key to notice here, if she going with someone who is a guy, forget it, don't do it that night (maybe the next day though). If she's a working girl, she's usually have a long drink, water, beer or something, and usually sit in a girl-only group, or by herself. Dress really provocative and there is no guy with her. Just walk up and ask nicely (in case she's not working, you may get her number too.)~~
~~Now, that's high class. Bia om is cheaper, although I kinda hate it because you have to spend money on the beer, food, tip then more money for the girl themselves. And plus when you have the urge to do it right away, they can't leave with you right away, you have to wait until they finish their shift 10:30-11:30 depend on which beer om you are at. But if you manage to get them to do it at the table, tip them 5-10 CAD (or more if you want) is reasonable. ~~
~~If you into massage (BJ, HJ) then Massage Ky Ðô`ng right beside Khach San Ky Dong (Ky Dong & Le Van Sy) It's off the road a little bit so pay attention.~~
~~Note: (Review # 6919)
~~Ask for room number 8, 20, 22, 26 for extra privacy (without extra cost) so the girl can perform more without getting into trouble. The trick in this is going in the begining of the month, so most of them have a lot of sick day left. If you like her so much, you can ask her to get a sick day (so she can leave right away with you after the massage). The cost for that is around 30 CAD and up for her to take the whole day off. ~~

Having digested every word of these learned pages, I spent an interesting 3 weeks in the summer of 2002 travelling North to South in Vietnam.~~~~Despite what I read here, my conclusion must be that, for the short-term visitor, Vietnam, with its tough prohibition of vice, is not an ideal destination for the sex tourist. As with most Asian destinations, sex and even love may be found with Vietnam’s beautiful daughters but it can be hard work, expensive and poor quality.~~
~~Yes, you are surprised. Vietnam is a cheap country. You can gave a suit made to measure for USD25 and if you are there for the long-term, no doubt you can have a girl for USD3 but it is not so overt that the itinerant traveller can find the Garden of Eden so easily.~~~~Vietnam is a beautiful place for a holiday and if you can enjoy the stunning landscape and the cheerful stoicism of these friendly people, you will have a wonderful time and maybe enjoy a few “extras” along the way.~~~~If it’s just sex you want, then Thailand is so much better. There, the girls are more beautiful, kinder and more genuine and you can have them all night for USD30 or less and maybe keep them as a friend and guide for the duration of your whole trip.~~~~In Vietnam, girls are ashamed of being with foreigners in public. They often have black teeth and you rarely get them for more than an hour.~~~~This was my experience.~~
~~Had trouble finding real action so I let my cyclo driver take me to a massage hotel. Complete rip off. He insisted on negotiating for me, which was to ensure his commission. USD20 for 1 hour and nothing sexual! My masseur was ugly, not like some of the others. She was very afraid of getting caught but would offer a HJ for a small tip. Not much fun but I’d come this far…..Stupid me. She would have been happy with USD3 but the smallest note I had was USD10 so it was an expensive evening. Then the cyclo wanted extra for waiting so long……~~
~~So, next time, I went alone to look. Found Van down near the lake. She was beautiful and we went for a coffee. She was embarrassingly familiar and tactile. No need to broadcast it in this puritanical society. She would not give me a price saying always it was “up to you”. Did she mean it? This web site suggests anything from cigarettes or USD3 to USD50 so I’d start with a low offer.~~~~We went to a hotel and had an hours suck & fuck. It was then I found out that she had very little left in the way of dentition. Not like Thailand….(sigh!) Then it was time to go. Not a whole night’s loving and gentle company like Thailand. She asked for USD50 which she insisted was the going rate for a fuck anywhere in the world. Bit steep for just one hour isn’t it? Then USD10 for the hotel …..not like Thailand…..(sigh) I offered her USD10 and decided to stick to it for a while. Maybe we’d agree on USD20? She got really angry and turned nasty. She told me to just give her USD20 and go and she would pay for the hotel. ~~
~~Well, I don’t like being cheated. I’d give her USD20 and I’d pay the hotel if that is what we agreed upon but she was obviously going to take the money and than expect me to pay the hotel. It was not about money anymore but principal. She would not let me out of the door so I gave her USD20 and of course she opened the door and shouted down to the receptionist (in Vietnamese of course) that I was trying to leave without paying. I ran out, and the landlord ran after me- “I paid her” I said and sped on up the road of this sleazy suburb of Hanoi. ~~~~I heard commotion behind me. Where was I? How do I get home? I ran up some steps and jumped down onto a motorway. Fortunately, at 1 am it was quiet and I could cross the deserted road. I walked and jogged until I found some taxi drivers enjoying a night cap and took a taxi back to town. I would not let the driver take me to my hotel. I wanted to remain anonymous so he dropped me at the lake and I walked from there. Phew! More than enough adventure for one night.~~
~~Feeling somewhat cautious, I paid the huge sum of USD2.5 to go to a disco. Giang soon picked me up. We negotiated a price. She started off with “USD50”. Still smarting from my experience in Hanoi, I settled on USD30. Her beaming face showed me that it was clearly far too much. Graduates in Vietnam earn USD50 per month and shop girls 20. We live and learn. She said my hotel was “no good”. It’s worth finding out which ones are “good” (i.e. “bad”) as you can save yourself a lot of money and have a more relaxing, leisurely coitus. It was not until we had left the noise of the disco that I found out that her clear English diction was not matched by a similarly elevated level of vocabulary and it taxed me sorely to find how many different sentences I could make using just her 20 words of English. ~~
~~We took a taxi to a hotel, which was full but found a room at a second nearby. This had a narrow drive and the taxi driver seriously damaged his car in reversing out. Perhaps he thought he’d get some recompense for this because he reported us to the Police.~~
~~I don’t enjoy sex much unless I can make the girl enjoy it too but Giang would not let me make her wet so we just had a boring quick fuck. Giang went to the shower, I got up, bloated condom swinging from my dick and the landlord burst in, “Police, Police”. He grabbed naked Giang by the hand and bustled her out. The hotel was now in darkness. The ‘phone rang continually but the landlord was pretending to be asleep. A man and woman in white shirts and grey trousers soon arrived and patrolled up and down outside. Were these really the Police? The landlord asked for USD20 to bribe them. Maybe they were the Police or maybe it was a scam. ~~
~~I decided not to pay and said I should just leave. I could not get out as all doors were locked and there were the Police patrolling outside. The landlord called a woman to come and remonstrate with me. “If they catch you here, you will have to pay USD500” she said. Well, somehow, the girl had got out before the Police had arrived but now I could not. “I’ll just go to bed and wait for the morning” I said. “No, you must check out now” the landlord insisted. This was hell. It was 1 am, I was dead tired but could do nothing but wait. The Police would not give up. The landlord hid me in the outside toilet. “If they ask you, we’ll just say that you came in because you felt ill” he suggested. It would not stack up. I was miles from the centre of town. ~~
~~I had no idea where I was and no possible reason for being there. I became convinced that these really were the Police Eventually, I persuaded the landlord to let me run for it. I paid him only the money which I still owed Giang and USD5 which he claimed to have paid the taxi-driver (surely a very healthy mark-up!). I climbed over the barbed –wire wall at the back of the hotel, ripping my new trousers in the process. It was the early hours of the morning and it was pouring with rain. Some fun I was having. Eventually, I found a moped taxi and got home, a little shaken yet again.~~
~~This is a small town and I did not find any discrete venue but there is a “karaoke-om” bar immediately opposite the “crazy house”. That is convenient, because you can take a taxi to this legitimate tourist site and then, in your ignorance, go into the bar for an “innocent” drink. I found out too late that this was the place to go and so did not taste all of the delights of Dalat.~~
~~I tried “Apocalypse Now” but although full of pretty girls, they seemed to be decent, modest Vietnamese with their pretty boy-friends and husbands. Drinks over-priced, music too loud to make conversation possible. A cyclo driver showed me some more interesting bars, all within the same vicinity. Again, he insisted on waiting there, expecting his commission. I decided to come back alone later. A girl mopped my brow with an iced towellette. She was ok but a bit fat. Now, those other girls…… Well, Lan said the price was USD50 and not negotiable. She would get half and the bar would get half. Too much I told her. So, I asked her to come to my hotel but the next day, in broad day-light, dressed as a normal decent girl just visiting her pen friend. I gave her USD1 then “for lucky” and the next day, she got USD25 plus tip for a quicky. She looked pretty ordinary and disappointing without her make up but I saved myself a hotel fee, a further USD25 and possibly another mid-night sprint from the Police.~~
~~~~In conclusion, if you are going to live in Vietnam for a while, you will have fun but if it’s a short visit—forget it!~~~~~~ (Review # 6498)
- Hanoi Massage Parlor Dated Added: Tue Jun 25 2002 Submitted by:
I visited Hanoi April 2002. The weather there was hot and humid but the expenses were damn cheap and so the women. Guys, take my advice, don't try street workers. They are very very cheap but most of them are drug addicts. It's just too risky to try SW.~~
~~There are plenty of massage parlors in Hoan Kiem District bearing glowing neon sign "Massage". Just go to the receptionist and say 'massage'. I paid 70000 vnd ($US5) for an hour of massage. The receptionist gave me a card and led me upstairs. I was instructed to take a show and have all my clothes in a locker with the key I kept. I was led to a semi private room. The masseuse unwrapped my towel slowly and massaged my body. She was fully clothed. I asked for extras using sign language. She said 100000 for hj and 200000 for bj. It was a rip-off (my friend had a bj for only 50000 at another massage parlor). ~~
~~What the hell, It is still much cheaper than in the U.S. She did a fantastic job. She licked the shaft of my penis and sucked real hard and at the same time rubbing, squeezing my balls. She's a pro. In 5 minutes I cummed. I expected to cum into her mouth but she let me cum on the towel. I let her massage my back and my ass for the remaining time. At the end I paid her 200000 and she asked for tips, but I said no. If she ate my cum I would give her a little more but hell I already paid too much. She seemed very happy with 200000 and asked me to come again next time. A total of $US17 for 1hr massage and a bj isn't bad after all. ~~ (Review # 5658)
- Hanoi Street Action Dated Added: Wed Jan 02 2002 Submitted by: Alex
The situation in Hanoi has changed a little bit compare to what reported in previous articles. The action as regarding street action has moved from the original lake. Now the only thing that you will find in around the lake is a lot of boys (that can make you bleed.....I do not know what they mean with that, I live this to your imagination). The real action (if you are into ladies) is near the Hilton, there is a little park very close to the hotel and there they are. Not many but of very good quality and you can have them for about 10 to 20 dollars. So if you are in Hanoi and you feel lonely don’t waist your time in karaoke bar (they will try to rip you off at any occasion), go to the Hilton walk around and choose!! (Review # 4852)
- Hanoi Travel Report Dated Added: Sun Dec 30 2001 Submitted by: me!!!
This is my report about the city of Hanoi. I spend 3 days in the city and I’m glad of that. The city is dirty, noisy and chaotic. The people rude and annoying offering you everything you can possibly immagine, over and over again. I went to the lake district hoping to find some company but I was wrong. The place is full of gays that try to chat with you and offer services, even if you say you are not into that they insist (what they think that I suddenly turn gay?), very late at night I found a young man that offer me a girl for he say 20 us dollars. I accept to follow him to a karaoke bar near the lake (close to the government hostel). In a strait line is only 2 minutes walk from the lake but in the intend to confuse you he take me through many little streets.
~~~~We arrive at the karaoke bar 10 minute later. I agreed with the guy to go inside have a look of the girls and if I do not like them to own him nothing. We go in a little room up stairs and 5 minute late 2 girls in their 30 arrive. Nothing special but I start to chat with one of them the most friendly, her name was nee, I asked her if she wanted a drink and she ordered an orange juice; At this point the situation gets complicated, the guy tell me that if I want to fuck the girl in an hotel I have to pay for an out of town hotel 15 us dollar per hour, plus the taxi another 10 us dollar round trip. That means that this girl would cost me about 50 dollar, and even if you have had no sex in a month she was definitely not worthy. I say to the guy that I do not like the idea to spend that much and say that I do not wan to the girl. But He tell me that I have to pay the girl anyway if I fuck her or not.
~~~~I get upset and want to live, but as soon I go to the door a man block me and ask me to pay for the "lady karaoke" that by the way we have not done. He show me a bill for 45 dollars. Now I only had 35 in my pocket, he star shouting something in Vietnamese, in the mean time the girl is asking me for the 20 dollar that the guy has promise her; it's a nightmare (especially as I have my credit card with me), I show to the man that I do not have any more money and I appear convince and so He let me go. In the end I spent 35 dollars for nothing. MORAL OF THE STORY: Stay away from the lake and if they offer you to meet a girl in a karaoke bar refuse or at least ask how much the karaoke will cost you or it may be trouble~~ (Review # 4842)

I like going to shops where they advertise hair wash and haircut for men, but offer more. You pay only 30,000-40,000 Dong for a massage and 10,000 more for hair wash. That's $2-$2.70 US and about 70 cents. For the massage you go upstairs to a semi-private cubicle with a long, narrow massage table. You strip to your underwear. She remains fully clothed. She massages you and after a while tickles your nipples, rubs your stomach and cock and asks if you want it massaged. She'll pull down your underwear, use a wet towel to clean your cock and then jerk it up and down for a while. Indicate you want her to suck it and she will. You can touch her everywhere through her clothes and under her shirt. She'll usually pull up her shirt and loosen her bra.
~~~~Sometimes you can feel her ass and/or pussy, sometimes she doesn't want. Quality is uneven. Sometimes the massage is good and sometimes not. Sometimes the blowjob is great and sometimes ok or even bad. The good thing is, it's cheap. For a decent massage and BJ (always BBBJ BTW) the tip is 50,000 dong or $3.30. That's all that's expected or needed. So if it's good, go back again, if not, try someone else next time. I always tell them I want to come in their mouth and about 70% follow through. If they don't, I tip them less. They work usually from 10 am to 10 pm.
~~~~You can make a date to go to a hotel with them before or after but usually not during work. Not all hair wash places offer this service. Some places it's hand-job only and some places not even that. A few places the girls will go all the way, but they are afraid of boss or police finding out, so it's not usual. I think the girls work for just tips and get no salary. But think, a nice looking girl, some sort of massage, blow job, come in their mouth, all for $5 to 6 dollars US. Not bad. A previous poster pays 200,000 for this service. That's way too much. That would be for two hours in the hotel although 100,000 would probably be ok too.~~
~~Some brothels are really ok and some are not. I usually want the girl to get the money and prefer a girl who is working mostly for herself. Many brothel in West Lake Distinct charge 20-30 US for foreign men.~~ (Review # 4612)

UPDATE REPORT: 12/24/00 ~~Hello Fellow Travelers. My recent return to Vietnam has given me some inspiration to continue living the rat race here in the states. I returned mainly for spiritual reasons and with it I experienced the most beautiful lifestyle one can imagine in Asia. Ofcourse there is also the shady scenes that I encountered and most of you want to know what it feels to travel to this remote destination. One word covers it "CHEAP." The plane ride ofcourse is one substantial cost to many of us therefore one that are willing to fork over this will experience a lifestyle that is not only rewarding but exciting especially here in Saigon.~~~~There were numerous bars and me not being able to speak any english was able to get around quite easily. Purchase a phrase book: Lonely Planet cost $8.00 u.s. and with this arsenal you can get by with whomever you may chose to converse with from hotels. ~~~~All I can say is that a man who is willing to travel to this desolate island, filled with pollution, numerous motorbikes, minimal cars, road side vendors who serve delicious foods of all sorts that caters to all different tastes from different cultures, and not to mention the beautiful women who are not older than 25. Ofcourse if you prefer younger there are some who are in their late teens. Now now if you prefer younger than this expect to go to jail for a number of years with no help from your embassy. I have toured their prison and it is not fit for even my dog to live in. Please understand this is a Communist state and there are no secrets. Your every action is being recorded by plain clothes police or civilians wishing to report and make easy money. But regardless if you follow the same methods you do in your home country you will be left alone with no problems I guarantee this. ~~~~Some etiquettes to follow: 1. Do not argue with the police. Give him $5.00 and apologize.~~ 2. Do not bad mouth their government or pay the consequences or ~~ do it among close friends.~~ 3. Do not be boisterous and loud and if confronted with police go to step 1.~~ 4. Treat women with respect even if they are high priced escorts and trust me they are not cheap but much cheaper than u.s.~~ ~~Places to hang out: The common one: Apocolypse Now Older gentleman in their 40's -60's with young young beautiful women. The women at night outnumber the men 5 to 1.~~~~But you know the best thing to do. Hire a taxi. People say go get a peddle cart or some ridiculous way of transportation. T-A-X-I!!!! It is cheap and it is safe. SAFETY on your vacation is a priority. Be smiling all the time even if some asshole pissed you off. It is a sign of weakness when you lose your cool.
