Saigon is notorious for its nightlife and beautiful girls. You can meet nice Vietnamese ladies in bars and clubs or in dating sites and arrange a coffee or dinner date with regular women. But there is also the third option of going to one of the red light districts and simply pay for girls. There are 2 main red light districts in Saigon: Bui Vien Street and Little Japan. Both areas have quite a different atmosphere, crowd and types of establishments:


Bui Vien Street is by far the most popular nightlife area in all of Saigon. On this 500m long strip, you can find restaurants, rooftop bars, and street bars. But at the same time, it’s also the big red-light district of Ho Chi Minh City.

There are 3 different types of prostitutes in the Bui Vien area: hostess girls in bars like Crazy Girls and Blue Sky Bar, massage ladies all over the street who are smiling and waving at you with their service menu, and freelancing girls both in the clubs as well as on the street late at night. Hookers on Bui Vien Street cab be too pushing and money-oriented. You’ll have a very hard time finding a “girlfriend experience” here.


Little Japan is oriented towards Japanese men. There are lots of Japanese restaurants and many massage parlors with some of the hottest Vietnamese ladies standing in front of these salons and trying to attract you to take their service. There are also several girly bars where you can have a few drinks with a lady of your choice and then take her out to your hotel. There are also street prostitutes who are just waiting for their next customer.

Little Japan is conveniently located in District 1, so even if you don’t find the girl you like, you can just go and have a beer in one of the many nice expat bars in the area.


There are many different types of hookers in the red light areas and the prices for drinks and sex vary greatly depending on each type of venue. Some examples are:

  • Hostess Girls: 100 to 120k per drink, 300 to 500k for the bar fine, and 500 to 1,000k for sex (negotiable)
  • Massage Girls: 250 to 400k for the massage, 300 to 400k for a happy ending, and 500 to 1,000k for sex
  • Street Freelancers: 500k
  • Club Freelancers: 500 to 1,000k
  • High-End Freelancers in Apocalypse Now: 2 million and up.
