Meeting Hoi An Girls
So enough about the bars and let’s get down to business. You would probably be wondering if it is difficult to get laid with Hoi An girls. But to jump start, you would need to know where to look first. Hoi An’s prostitution or sex trade is illegal compared with neighboring cities or countries for that matter.
In fact, you will actually get disappointed. If you would like to release your load the easy way, the best place to go to is Bangkok or Ho Chi Minh. Or you can opt to go for a massage but you would have to ask the girl politely and discreetly since it is not tolerated in Hoi An. If she agrees, she might give you a hand job but don’t expect anything more than that. But again, you must do it with complete and absolute discretion otherwise, she will get fired from her job or she will be sent to jail.
But if you are looking to date a sweet Vietnamese girl, then you can go to Hoi An and find a girl there however, you can’t expect them to converse with you since they know broken English. But to give you a little bit of something to look forward to, these Hoi An girls are absolute stunners.
On the other hand, since the place is a tourist attraction, maybe you can hang out with girls who are on vacation as well – who know, you might get lucky and be able to bang someone during your stay.
