While Ho Chi Minh City massage has earned a good reputation, the massage varies in quality. Again you might be looking for something budget friendly and still a treat for your body.
Here are the best massage centers in Saigon, locally known as Ho Chi Minh. For the locals, these parlors are high end but if you think of them with the North America rates you will find them a good bargain.
All the therapist in the below massage Saigon are skilled to perform various type of massage including Traditional Vietnamese and Thai style massage. Also, they are located close to the tourist area of Saigon.
Temple Leaf Spa
Temple Leaf Spa is a heaven for those who want a massage in an ambient environment. Its peaceful state and aroma put you in a relaxing mind prior to the massage itself.
From its décor to the great reception, Temple Leaf Spa is a highly recommended spa for massage Saigon.
They have a range of massages with the 90 minutes massage being my favorite. All their Ho Chi Minh City massage includes a beauty care service i.e. body scrub and clay mask to ensure you are fully relaxed.
The fact that they use pure organic products makes the spa undeniable to those who dread chemical products.

Golden Lotus Spa and massage in Saigon
If you have ever visited any of the above spas, you will notice something quite different about Golden Spa. Here, the décor is not Vietnamese but Korean.
In this massage Saigon, the saunas are communal and relaxing. You also get to socialize in the spa, which allows both sexes. While this might be uncomfortable for some, couples get to relax together.
Golden Lotus Ho Chi Minh City massage is very outstanding. Also, unlike other spas where you guess the tip, the tip is predetermined helping clients to budget accordingly.
If you look at the menu, you will notice the price if high. This is because of the tip, so if you factor in that the overall cost is reasonable.

Some of their massage offered in this Ho Chi Minh City massage include: four hands massage, Swedish massage, Hawaiian, Thai massage, Shiatsu and their signature, Moc Houng Body treatment.
Other body treatments include facial, pedicure, manicure and foot treatments.
As you consider other massages, I suggest you try their Moc Houng signature package. Its 90 minutes and has a lot of interesting rubs and stretches.
Moc Huong massage Saigon is also ideal for sportsmen to take a break. On the sports massage section you will see subcategories which allows the masseuse to focus on particular body parts: shoulders, back, arms, feet etc.
In Moc Houng you can choose more than one masseuse to provide the appropriate strength for deep tissue massage.
Once you are done with your massage of choice, you will be served with a Vietnamese cup of tea to heighten your relaxation.

Ever visited Saigon Opera House? Well, a few steps from this entertainment complex stands a highly ranked Ho Chi Minh City massage spa, Saigon Heritage Spa.

Is it possible to get a bad massage Saigon?
The answer is yes. There are many massage Saigon and while a majority of them offer quality services some get sloppy from time to time.
To avoid being a victim, we advise you visit the above Ho Chi Minh City massage. If by any chance the massage fall below par, you could stop and talk to the management.
Most of the masseuse in Vietnam do not talk English but the management will always help in case you need something. You can learn more types of massages in Vietnam here.
