    Any gay friendly hotels in Saigon?

    I'm going to Saigon in February 2020 with a friend, and we want to stay in a gay friendly hotel that allows visitors. Can anyone help with information? Also, how can we meet local guys? The apps? The saunas? Bars? Any information is appreciated.

    Apps, a lot of boys, around 50% are moneyboys. Most populated app is Blued.
    NaDam spa, Thi bar - boys and young men, your luck depends on how good looking you are.

    There are hotels that are advertised as "gay friendly", but they all seem really expensive, for some reason (at least by SE Asian standards).

    I usually just a find a well reviewed joint, that has a price I like, and take my chances that the guy on the counter at night is reasonably chilled. I've been to Saigon at least seven times now, and never had a problem - except once, when the guy insisted that if my off was staying all night, that I pay extra for double occupancy.

    My impression is that most hotels in Vietnam don't care if you bring someone back, as long as you're discrete.

    Had 6 nights there back in July. Spent most the time just catching up with a couple of friends, as socialising in the straight bars. But I also met 3 different offs via the apps. Seems to be where it's all happening.

    My impression has always been that there's no specific gay culture in sgn - that Vietnamese people are so casual about it, that gay people just blend in with the rest of the Nightlife. But I read on the web recently that there a few different speciality gay bars have opened there recently (see Google). Didn't try them. Maybe next time.

    Thank you for the advice.
    The one thing I do is always book a room for 2 people.

    I wouldn't, unless you definitely know you'll have someone staying with you all night, every night that you're there. Otherwise you're wasting money.

    Like I say, this was only one incident, in the many, many trips I've made to Vietnam. It was back in 2014 IIRC, and in this case, I actually managed to talk the night manager out of charging me, by assuring him the guy wouldn't be staying all night - which he didn't.

    Just by the way, totally off topic anyway, but interesting nevertheless.....

    I wasn't planning on offing this guy. I just wanted to jam with him. He had a guitar, and I'd just bought a $90, quite functional Mandolin at one of the gift shops. We had a nice jam, and believe it or not, at the end of it he suddenly kissed me, and we started to fuck. This was a surprise to me.

    Totally random shit like that always happens to me in Vietnam. That's why I love the place.
