What to expect with a Saigon massage
If a girl says ‘baby massa’ she’s offering you sexual services.
Another tell-tale sign is the familiar South East Asia practice of
brushing against your genitals whilst they work on your thighs…
in Vietnam is illegal and the police can raid and shut down any hotel
or parlour where it happens. For this reason a lot of the rooms have a
window on the doors for the management to check what going on – Vietnam
is unlike Thailand and anything ‘extra’ is usually offered in spite of
the managements wishes.
Finding a long-term love interest in Vietnam is easy to do if you take your time and enjoy a courtship. The ladies of Vietnam are seeking permanent relationships on:

The implication is that whilst you may still be offered the extra
service, it’s probably going to feel rushed. The masseuse will probably
put a towel over you whilst frequently peering over her shoulder to see
if she’s being spied on!
The bizarre part of a Saigon massage is how desperate the girls can
be. Believe it or not, the masseuse is sometimes on the verge of begging
if you decline. I once went to a hotel for a sports massage, at the end
she kept trying to touch me and encourage extra services. I kept
declining and eventually she accepted that I didn’t want it. Her mood
changed and she started to sob for 10 minutes…
I asked a few
western friends if this happened to them too; they said that it’s quite
common for the girl to act and behave like that if a client declines. In
other countries I’ve never had a girl almost begging in this manner.
The girls make their money from tips and this means they’re more
inclined to offer something extra for a big tip at the end. Some girls
offer blowjob services, only a few offer the full package and you need
to ask around the expat community to find them.

You can find and
have a good Saigon massage in any part of the city. Central ones in
District 1 are more comfortable and closer to western standards. The
price is higher, the girls speak English and expect a large tip.
District 3 and 5 are good places too and happy endings are more likely
