A while back I wrote about ladyboy locations in Ho Chi Minh City. That post gives the basic rundown on the limited ladyboy scene in the city. Unfortunately there simply aren’t a lot of places to meet ladyboys in Ho Chi Minh City. In fact, there aren’t even a lot of ladyboys in the city, especially in comparison to nearby countries like Thailand and Cambodia where kathoeys are a part of everyday life.
Today I am pleased to announce that I have discovered some new places to be meet ladyboys in Ho Chi Minh City. Since Vietnamese ladyboys are in my mind some of the hottest ladyboys, if not the hottest ladyboys, in the world, I am always looking for new ways to find them.
Now Ho Chi Minh City’s motorbike riding ladyboys are notorious. They seem to come out of nowhere and approach foreigners who make the mistake of walking around areas like the backpacker district around Pham Ngu Lao. I say mistake because most tales that involve these ladyboys don’t sound too good. Especially when you hear about things like robberies.
On the one hand it might just be that guys who have good experiences with motorbike riding ladyboys don’t bother writing about it online. So that would leave only the negative tales to appear. On the other hand, I don’t really want to get involved with people if I keep hearing about them causing problems. It’s not because they’re ladyboys but rather because they ride around looking for tourist newbies that I worry most. My mom told me not to get into a vehicle with a stranger when I was a kid. For the most part I continue to follow her advice.
Recently though I found a new group of ladyboys that also straddle motorbikes. Honestly almost everyone but the rich upper crust rides motorbikes in Vietnam. It has become a way of life in the country as anyone who has tried to cross a road or walk on a sidewalk with motorbikes all around can tell you.
The motor bike backing ladyboys I’m talking about here post up around the relatively new “Walking Street” bordering Nguyen Hue Street in Ho Chi Minh City. If you haven’t been to the area you should. It’s a huge paved park where lots and lots of people congregate every night. It has a color fountain, street food and sellers, and lots more. It is also surrounded by tons of great cares and restaurants.
There are a lot of hot chicks at Walking Street every night. There are also even hotter ladyboys around most evenings. Sometimes they walk around with everyone else, but they’re easier to spot later into the night when they often park their bikes on the edges of the park and just sit there. They chat on their phones, chat with their friends (including regular women and sometimes guys), and show off their amazing bodies in really revealing clothes. I say they are easy to spot that way because they can be a lot more difficult to find when they are in the crowd, even for an eagle eyes ladyboy lover like me!
More than once, I was with local friends who didn’t even realize they were ladyboys until I started discreetly pointing out the nuances that revealed to me that the chicks did indeed have dicks. Well, they may no longer have dicks but that’s unlikely in Vietnam where ladyboys usually get a boob job at the most but keep their tools intact.
These ladyboys are mostly in their early twenties with ivory white skin, beautiful faces, long jet black hair and big bolt on boobs. They are so hot that I am getting aroused just thinking about them now as I write this. It’s fantastic.
Like the ladyboys who hang around Wat Botoum Park over in Phnom Penh these ladyboys seem a lot more interested in love and dating than work. I mean, they are at Walking Street to hang out rather than to look for customers. That said, the hunt for money seems to be a national pastime in Vietnam. So even though the ladyboys in question might not be looking to trade sex for money, they might not reject a chance for that either.
Of course they are not nearly as warm and friendly as the Cambodians. At least not by appearances. But I’ve walked right up and talked to them and it wasn’t nearly as awkward as you might think. The biggest problem was the language barrier, but the younger Vietnamese are more keen to learn English than the older folks. Soon Vietnam will surpass Thailand in English speaking ability I think.
Finally I have to mention a new trick I found for Craigslist. The Vietnam Craiglist casual encounters T4M section is probably the best place for guys in the city to find transgender sex workers online. The problem for those interested in locals is that a bunch of Thai and Filipina ladyboys seem to monopolize that page. You can remove them from your view of the listings though as I recently learned. All you have to do is go to the T4M section, navigate up to the search bar, and type in “Vietnamese” to find the Vietnamese ladyboys. Or you can type stuff like “-Thai” or “-Filipina” to remove the listings that contain those words.
It’s not as easy as signing up for an account at a ladyboy dating site like Lady Boy Kisses but it still works. I wish I had found this trick a long time ago. Craigslist is still strong even though it looks like something from the 1990’s.
