male massage

Hi there...is there any good male massage service in any of the hotels?

Like in Bangkok some of the blind men give great massage through their extra sensory ability.

Any ideas?

Hi gr8place,

My Vietnamese friend had massage done by blind people in Saigon. He said he wanted to help them earn, but he felt a little strange as he was getting used to the normal massage.

Thanks Land

Appreciate your feedback. Did ur friend enjoy the massage? Does he know of any others that provide extra services who are not neccessarily blind-seeing he is used to normal massage.

Im looking forward to HCMC and relaxing.

Thanks

Hi gr8place,

Well, he told me but maybe I'll keep his secret as I promised to him :-) I think you can have extra service massage in many hotels.

Hi gr8place,

The day I came to Binh Tay Market in Jan 2005, it was closed due to a holiday or something (didn't recall if it was during the Lunar New Year or not), so I can’t say about Binh Tay.

I've been to Ben Thanh Market maybe 20 times. Friends bought cosmetics, fabric, wood souvenirs and girl things (bowl for hair, etc.). I bought crystal pagoda, global ball..... The crystal option is much more than in Hanoi. I also bought comfi clothes to wear at home. We ate Vietnamese food in the market, too. There's a big food section. I always get lost and can't tell which market door is which (there are 4 doors).

As what I know, Hotel Equatorial has male masseurs but they only do foot massage. I remember now, as for the blind masseurs many years ago when this organization started, a foreign woman required a male masseur but they didn’t supply. They only let male masseur do for men.

Gr8 day to you.

Land and others,

Binh Tay is a bigger market than Ben Thanh. Prices are tremendously lower than Ben Thanh market. It is considered as a wholesale district. Prices are very competitive here. For example, I bought 2 luggages from Binh Tay market for 230 K VND/each whereas they want 400 K in Ben Thanh market. My wife's classmate in VN have a stall in Ben Thanh market. It cost her 10 M VND for the space per month. Do the calculation. You will know that they have to make a lot of profit to pay their overhead. Binh Tay market is in the middle of Cho Lon district. This should be right up your alley , Land. Chinese are known to be very good business person. There is not a whole lot of haggling for prices here.
