I'm very interested in living in Vietnam and dating Vietnamese ladies (although I'm still young). Being a Chinese-Canadian dude with Chongqing / Sichuan / Hubei ancestry, I want to know from you guys what Vietnamese girls look like, behave like, and what are their values....
Also can any1 recommned good websites for dating SEA women (specifically Thai and Vietnamese)? Thx
Didn't Vietnam used to belong to China a long, long time ago? Doesn't it have the same underlying materialism and greed that motivates the society?
I haven't been there myself, though, so I'm only speaking from things I've been told by some who have been there.
It's still poor, isn't it? If it is, the women are almost certainly better than Chinese women.
I've dated one Vietnamese girl. She was hot but I met her just before the hassle of having to do my visa run and it fizzled out.
Try Vietnam Cupid but if you're on the ground try just chatting to girls or using mobile apps.
Thai Love Links is good for Thais but, I dunno, most of the best girls I've dated in Bangkok haven't actually been Thai!
I'd like to check out Vietnam at some point - is anyone from HA there?
The biggest problem with 'nam is that it's rife with scams and scammers, plus there are a few other quirks that can catch you out. And it rains a lot - it usually gets the tail end of the typhoons that hit the Phillies.
Different people come away with different opinions.
I found Vietnam to be less scammy than Thailand, Laos and Cambodia. Several Vietnamese people told me that the Vietnamese do not like the Chinese.
I wasn't chasing tail, but the young women there impress me as good, traditional people. Vietnamese are friendly and seem to be interested in getting to know you. If you are a fluent English speaker then you can converse with girls just based upon that. Development of English language skills is a path to a better life for them.
I know the primry reason that Vietnam is unfriendly towards China/Chinese people is the dispute over the Spratly Islands in the South China Sea, but ain't that the affair of governments?
How patriotic/nationalistic are Vietnamese people in general? (i.e. being easily stirred by negative sentiment towards another country/people)
(If you're in China, you might not be able to see these without some "special tools.")
(1) The Singaporean solution: now half-price!
(2) It's the Taiwanese solution too:
(3) Being fluent in other languages greatly helps, as indicated by the cheesy narration.
(4) And it all ends happily ever after:
(5) But you may have to deal with wacko in-laws like this:
Go to Vietnam before you marry Vietnamese. You'll get a better idea of how Vietnamese women are and how they can be by visiting Vietnam than asking people to tell you. If you're going to get married, a trip or two is probably worth it.
If you like Laos and Yunnan, China, try northern Vietnam.
If you're used to hanging around overseas Vietnamese and want to dig deeper, definitely go for southern Vietnam. Also, most Vietnamese brides in Taiwan are from around Can Tho in southern Vietnam. Can Tho is famous for its floating markets.
The Central Highlands and the northern borderlands are mostly made up of ethnic minorities.
You can get a 1-month ($20) or 3-month ($30) single-entry visa pre-approval letter from:
This is only available via air arrival.
Once you have your pre-approval letter, then you have to pay $45 USD in cash at the airport. They take Vietnamese dong too, but prefer US dollars.
I'll be stopping by Vietnam next year.
You have to be a bit cautious in Vietnam these days

That's a weird article. Heck I'm interested in young educated women. Ideally women from a self-sufficient family. These businesses selling Vietnamese certified virgins sound pretty messed up. Just the whole damn process seems wack. I saw a video on it on youtube awhile ago and I'm not impressed. I actually felt sorry for the women a bit as they were treated like meat. LOL if a feminist saw it her head would probably explode.
I just read the article, and paying $7,000 or $10,000 for a bride is pretty frightening to me, and inheriting the woman's family problems is also not a good situation at all.
So as someone else in this post pointed out, I would prefer Vietnmaese women (or women from anywhere in SEA) that come from families capable of supporting themselves.
The article also mentioned Vienamse dislike towards Singaporean men, but I'm Chinese-Canadian.
Is it easy to find well-educated (not in terms of degrees, but knowledge / abilities) Vietnamese women nowadays? What do they like in a man as compared to the notoriously difficult "??" (white collar) class in China?
Anyone coming to Bkk who wants to go to Vietnam after that - I'd be interested!
If you want to go there you've either got Hanoi or Saigon (have I got that right?), i.e. the North/South capitals. Not sure which is best. Both are pretty good, except if you hate motorbikes or rain. There's probably some Roosh guys who are there and can tell us where to go.
I found middle/upper class Chinese ladies very easy to meet in China. If you're geeky/smart they'll be all over you, and maybe the same will be true in Vietnam. And what's more - these women are rich!
