These places are very tourist oriented, and I don’t really recommend them.They may offer cheap massages (about 200k), but then it often turns out that they have no idea how to perform a decent massage, and after 20 minutes or so they start asking if you want “special service” and try to get as much tip from you as possible.There are more than a dozen of these massage salons in Little Japan and also a few more outside on Le Thanh Ton Street (see map below).And then there are also the small massage salons spread all along Bui Vien Street (left picture) and Thi Sach Street and Dong Du Street (right picture) in District 1.Next are the massages in “Little Japan”, a small area in District 1 full of Japanese restaurants, girly bars – and naughty massage salons.
It’s a light, long, rhythmic stroke that generally runs with the grain of the muscle.
The Dai Nam Hotel (left picture) for example, has a spa on the 4th floor (just ask the hotel staff and they will tell you where the elevator is) and once you reached the lobby, you can choose a service from the menu – a “Hot Stone Massage” for example costs 270k.
You then go to the dressing room, take off your clothes and put a towel around your body.
However, in case you really want to choose a particular girl, the price is slightly more expensive – 400k instead of 280k.
And as usual, you will need to pay a tip for the happy ending (about 400-500k).
This circular stroke is designed to squeeze the muscles and wring out tension from the shoulders, upper arms, legs, and buttocks.
