I am thinking of going to Vietnam for a holiday I need to know if it is seedy like Thailand. I appreciate that there is more to Thailand than the sex trade.
I did not like being constantly harassed in Bangkok and other places in Thailand by sex workers, in fact it sickened me. So naturally I am concerned in case the tourist areas in Vietnam are the same.
There is definitely a seedy side to Vietnam for those that are looking for it, but it's not in your face. Ignore the guy who will be along in a minute with tales of prostitutes sitting down at his table in a restaurant.
I doubt Thailand is seedy everywhere, to label a country like that shows a lack of knowledge. And the same goes for Vietnam.
There is virtually nowhere in Thailand where you would get hassled constantly by sex workers. I do wonder where the OP went? I did wonder if the OP classified all the ladys outside massage shops asking if you want a massage as sex workers? I laughed at reply 1, vietnam sex website in HCMC the day I was there, I was having a few beers outside a restaurant early afternoon near Bui Vein street when a girl did stop and asked if I wanted her to come to my room for "massage".
Bui Vein St. Vietnam is actually quite conservative with strong family values.
Vietnam is very very conservitive. You may get asked for a massage but thats about it. If your a sex tourist do not come to Vietnam. There's at least 1 area in Hanoi.
My experience is also Bui Vein St. Same as Thailand if you stay away from certain streets in some tourist area you see no open prostitution, excluding Pattaya and Patong in Phuket. Well most towns in Thailand have brothels, and certain places like PattayaSoi CowboyNana Plaza and Patpong you will see many whores and may be approached by them.
I was in Vietnam in '93, '17, '19 and about to go back in May and never been approached on the street by a girl looking to sell herself. However during my '93 trip i was offered a girl in nearly every hotel i stayed in the south onlyguess this was due to the American GI days. So the answer is NOnot as openly as Thailand.
I have lived and worked in Thailand and have visited Vietnam only once. There were officials openly taking bribes at Saigon Airport. My mobile phone was stolen from my front pocket of my jeans within one hour of arriving in Vietnam. Prostitutes enter restaurants, sit down at your table and proposition you. A prostitute put her finger in her mouth and rolled it around, while I was trying to eat my meal.
Vietnam hotels and places to stay
Staff of tourist bus companies laugh at you, if you miss a bus and do not offer alternative arrangements. Stock at the Ben Thanh Market in Saigon was overpriced. I found the area of D1 in Saigon to be full of prostitutes, pick pockets, heroin addicts and drug smugglers. The police are completely ineffective.
