Re: Ho Chi Minh Info Thread

Recently been to Vietnam for more than a week. Its been a very great enjoyable experience so far

First up, for those who are interested into health care/spa, may visit the following place.



The spa is inside a hotel, once you enter the main door, the bell boy will ask if you are here for a massage. He will lead you to the lift at the left side, and wait with you together for the lift to reach. Once reach, he will press level 2 for you and bid you farewell. All this time without expecting any tips. Once at level 2, there will be someone welcoming you and describe to you that the massage package range from 320k to 1.23mil VND, and the tips for girl is fixed at 600k VND.

The staff inform that all payment will be at the counter after the deeds has been done. I select the 2nd cheapest package at 420k, body and foot massage before being usher to the changing area. Typical setup of having a few small closet for you to keep your clothing while changing to their robe and handing you over a key tag number. You move to the general area and wait for your key tag number to be call. Once your number is call, a staff will lead you to a room.

You will not be able to select any girls, but all the girls that I manage to take a glimpse at are among the age of 20s IMO. The guy who attend to you will ask the type of girl you like. I told him I like young girl with pretty face. He speak minimal English and just nodded to my request. All this time while he is holding a clipboard with 2 or 3 digit numbers (I assume representing the girls) and also time slot. After listening to my request, he didn't scribble anything at all. I tip 50k VND hoping that he really do accommodate to my request.

I waited for around 5 minutes, the girl came in. Young yes, but face is more towards sultry rather than pretty. But she is still pretty regardless just not my cup of tea. Boob size is B and above. The girl also speak zero English, so throughout the massage session is just she doing a half hearted back massage and no conversation at all.

About half an hour later, she signal me to turn around. She proceed with a few more minutes of massage and started to take out her top. She proceed to take out a wet wipes. and clean my little bro, took a sniff and BBBJ me. She allow top roaming and bottom roaming, but can't roam inside panties. Just before releasing, she move her head away and jerk me off til I finish cumming. Somehow girls can sense when guys are about to cum

She does another round of cleaning up on me and help me put back my robe. She lead me back to the general waiting area and all this time she didn't do any action that hint me to give her tips. All this while still maintaining a smiling face throughout. I chill a while at the general area before I took a shower, proceed to the changing area to dress back up. There is a "tipping jar" with a 50k on it, I just tip them too.

I was then usher to the front desk and ask to be pay 1.02mil VND(420k + 600k) I chit chat with the front desk staff. The staff mention the girl tipping and service provided is standard(which means there is no HJ or FJ options) They are open from 10am to 5am, and girls roster are not fixed. During peak hours, there will be close to 100 girls and non peak hours will have 30 girls.

Summary, 1.02mil VND = less than 60SGD. I returned to this place a few more times throughout my trip I did went to KTV and normal facial full service too. I will pen it down here too when more time to spare.

Its more expensive if you compare to the online site that uses Vietnamese as a form of communication.

Its cheaper compare to the infamous place that wear Ao Dai.

So, I would say it depends on what your comparison is?

For myself, I know zero about Vietnamese language hence I am okay with paying abit more(but not to the point of spoiling market)

But for this trip I succumb to a "overprice" KTV lady who looks like Suzu Honjou... I spent 7million VND for overnight on her... More details when I have more times to write about my encounter

Re: Ho Chi Minh Info Thread

Just came back from HCM about 2 weeks ago. Decided to write a experience I had there.

So I stumble upon this telegram group promoting a SPA/Massage place. So I went to this place which is about 20-30mins away from D1.

Arrived there, was brought to this waiting area where the manager would explain to you the pricing and stuff. Basically you buy a ticket for a room for 2 hours. I cannot remember the other pricing but the one I wanted was 2M. (Note: just for room). After that they will have a car to bring you to that location which was nearby. You will then choose the girl over there.

OK the room was the best I ever experience. There is a big jacuzzi, a small suana and steam room. There is also a inflatable mattress. And of course a round bed. There was music playing already and the lights is like you are in a club. You can order beer and food. There is no charges for it. Drink as much as you like.

The manage told me the girl cost 2M for HJ, BJ, CIM. 2 times. Anything extra I would have to negotiate with her. So basically if you want boom boom, It cost about 4-5m. But the girls I had was young and tight. absolutely worth it.

So after i left the place at about 6? my friend was at a Korean KTV waiting for me. I joined them and that place suck big time. left in like an hr. So on the way back to Hotel, I was telling my friend about this place and i manage to convince them to go.

This time we took the Bigger "room". It was actually like a 5 storey shophouse with 3 bedroom, 1 ktv room, 1 small pool. And yes there is still suana and steam room.

The bedrooms is all equipped with sofa, toilet, washingg area, jaccuzzi, inflatable mattress and a bed. It was dope.

Long story short, basically for that 2 hours, the whole place belongs to you. you can do whatever shit you want. bang in the elevator also can. Basically we are walking around naked getting BJs and bang in the same room.

So yes i was a happy man.

i know which place you talking about
no is not worth it, when you can bang the same quality girls at half that price
not worth for going solo at least
worth trying in a group as everyone can play and bang together in the room in full sight and has facilities

Happy that you enjoyed the experience. It is your money, u decide how u want to spend it. If its me I will not spend like this as I feel the CP value isn't there. It is too overpriced.

I hope the establishment don't take your example as a cue to increase prices further and start to milk us foreigners even more. Thinking that we are richer compared to the locals and anyhow pay.

Other bros try to achieve a high CP value for the money you paid for if not will spoilt market for everyone including the Locals there.

Re: Ho Chi Minh Info Thread

Okay next up! I went to a couple of KTV during my trip. I definitely recommend 1127 KTV in District 5. This place is recommended by a local to me as there is more Vietbu who can speak Chinese and some English. We came in a group of 5, and the medium room given to us can easily match 2 x large room in most Singapore KTV.

Pricing wise, the bottle are roughly 2mil VND to 4mil VND, depending on what you choose. We all decided on Glenlivet, 3+1 promo, taking the drinks total to 6mil VND. Beer is price at 60k VND per can. Add on all the finger food, room charge, other misc fees, the total we spent that night is 12mil VND. Excluding tips, which is 1mil VND each without any butterfly.

During line up, there is a good 30(15 x 2 rounds) Vietbu for you to choose from. My local partner requested the mamasan to separate them by no ST/LT, ST and LT category. And subsequently will request the girl who know how to speak Chinese to put their hands up, and pinky finger for those who know abit Chinese

My eyes are only targeting the LT category and there were 5 of them at the first round. 2 of them know Chinese. However, to everyone surprise I selected one Vietbu that never put her hands/pinky up. My reasoning is first glance, she is super young, my gauge is below 23 of age and her face resembles 50% of Suzu Honjou from certain angle. Her body is about the same as Suzu Honjou too. I take a glimpse during the second round parade too, there were some good looking and chinese speaking Vietbu but I am good with the one I selected.

Of course, once the Viet Suzu Honjou she sit down with me I can only use google translate to communicate with her. True to my gauge, she is 19 years old only!!! And its only her second day at work!!! I did a crash course with of learning the number 4,5,6(bon nam sau) in Vietnamese and play dice with her(I already know 1,2,3 aka moot hai ba).

After a few rounds of dice, she got pretty high and requested to take a break. We tried talking via the translation app during the break. From what I know, the preference of the rest is to sing, drink, talk until certain level of "highness" and proceed out to the extra activity outside. Hence, I would say playability in the room was relatively low, but maybe its due to the people I came with.

We spent about 3 hours there, and then the Vietbu will ask if we want to bring them out. My answer is definitely yes, but 7mil VND is pretty steep to me... The only plus point is the 1mil VND fee will be counted part of the 7mil VND. So off we go back to my room for the extra activity. Back in my room, she acted as if she was pretty shy. But I just have the beast in me to "violate" her body Best of all, her body is all natural without any surgeries. I did all things any JAV actor will do to Suzu Honjou, and I was a very happy man. We had 3 rounds and the following morning she translated that she is going to be late for class. I translated back to her "just give the class a miss today and lets do round 4". She just laugh and smack my arm and proceed to dress back up.

Of course, I did went back to the same place again a few days later, but I don't see her during the parade. It should be either she was taken or not working that day. I selected a Chinese speaking girl this time, but the experience is nothing compare to Viet Suzu Honjou. For those of you who are curious who is Suzu Honjou, here you go!




For bros who are going there, don't complain to me that she don't look like Suzu Honjou or you can't find her. The turnover rate is pretty high there according to the mamasan. Hence you may not able to see the same Vietbu when you revisit the place. If you are interested in the Vietbu, I suggest you to get hold of her Zalo contact. And if she give it to you, you have won half the battle
