Hoang Dia is another the many hot toc shops on Nguyen Phi Khanh street in Ho Chi Minh City with a staff of service providers offering oral services. The shop sits at street number 126 and is marked by a series of big bright signs that can be scene from a distance.
Hoang Dia is located on the north side of this local sort of “blow row”. There are many similar shops in the immediate area including several that have already been reviewed on this website such as Phu Nguc and Tuan Tam.
Unlike some of the competitors on the strip the inside of Hoang Dia actually looks like a real hair salon. You could even imagine that someone might in fact get a trim while inside the place if only it had a barber on staff. Instead the shop has a handful of women on staff who skew towards the older side for the area.
Of course things like staff numbers and makeup can change from one day to the next in an adult hot toc like Hoang Dia but as it stands the four or five women usually found working the shop are closer to 35 than 25. Some may very well have aged out of other aspects of the adult industry requiring youthful looks and exuberance but I can’t be sure of that.
The Vietnamese hair salon slash massage shops offering oral don’t always hire older women. One only need recall the well known place called Thien Phu for an example of that. While the building at 49 Nguyen Phi Khanh is now literally a hollowed out shell since the aforementioned shop closed there are still some very attractive women in their early twenties working the local circuit.
Although the women at Hoang Dia are on the older side relatively speaking they are still for the most part attractive. They are also skilled and generally fit with at least one of the women having a big round set of bolt on bossoms. The ladies at Hoang Dia wear the kinds of flattering dresses that are common in the industry and they seem to have no trouble drawing in customers even in spite of all the nearby competition.
Once customers step inside and select a service provider they are guided up a single flight of stairs to one of the private rooms. These rooms have a rather typical layout reminiscent of the setup over at the more well known Benny’s. That means the room is filled with small cubicles made up of metal frames and frosted glass.
The walls around the cubicles don’t go all the way up to the ceiling or even down to the ground but they provide enough privacy for customers to be satisfied. Each cube contains a sturdy massage type table with the standard sink at its head. The women use the sink, soap and an arsenal of wet wipes as their main cleaning apparatus at the beginning and end of each session.
As mentioned the standard service is a suck and go but like the nearby and similarly named Hoang Duc some of the women on staff at Huang Dia take it upon themselves to offer the full course. That special service is off menu with rates subject to negotiation but a typical all inclusive fee for a foreigner is somewhere around 1.5 million in local currency ($66 USD).
Customers who opt to go all the way are asked to pay up front right in the both while payment for standard services on the other hand is done on the way out as per usual. The house charges a fee of 250,000 Dong ($11 USD) per customer. Customers are usually expect to tip above that too. Foreigners tend to be hit with a overall charge of something like 400,000 Dong ($18 USD) though those who can speak the language or at least navigate the scene as locals do often pay something lower than that just as the many local guys who use the shop do. One-and-a-half stars.
