This place is awesome! I go twice a month and get the VIP package... I think it’s around 400,000 VND and worth it 100%. Really super hot women. I get the shave, haircut, ears cleaned, nails clipped, and the chair massage. You look great and feel good! Then I head over to NPK street to finish my man spa day...
I just went to VIP64 Hair Salon and the whole package cost me 300,000 VND. And I don't speak any Vietnamese. Ethnically, I'm Chinese and I'm only fluent in English and Chinese.
There was one exceptionally attractive girl there, but the rest were largely mediocre, and the girl that serviced me was not good looking at all (from my criteria). Their clothes are not too revealing, but they were polite and was massage was ok.
For 20k-50k it's not worth my time to haggle over the price. I guess everyone is different but where I'm from prices are way higher so I'm not worried if I get charged a dollar or so more than the locals.
1 USD = $23,000 VNd . About $1-$2 as Quinn observed.
Spending money is good for the economy and to help other people grow in their lives. Also, ruining the mood for her or for me is a waste of my time and energy over a lousy few bucks. I'd rather work more.
BTW, there is also Loc Thien Y Beauty Salon in Ho Chi Minh. Or did they go out of business?
I just tried Hoang Trieu Hair Salon in District. There were many customers, but I won't be going again. The person who serviced me was rushing, which I don't like. Maybe because they are very busy and business is good.
I went to VIP64 Hair Salon in District 1 again. I still saw a couple attractive girls there, with their legs are revealed, and some of the girls were not attractive at all.
The girl... no, face it, the old lady that serviced me was literally an old lady. I think she was in her late 40's, at least. I again paid 300,000 VND. The massage was good and the old lady was quite cheerful.
Two more questions:
As an East Asian, I don't have any instinctive fear towards ear cleaning. I have no problem with someone sticking something sharp into my ear canal because that's perfectly acceptable in my country and culture. The problem is can these Vietnamese girls be trusted with this kind of service and not accidentally cause harm to my ears?
Are there any hygiene issues during this entire process?
