I recently wrote about meeting Vietnamese girls in my article about the best dating website and apps in Vietnam.

Online dating in Vietnam works great (especially VietnamCupid, Bumble, and SeekingArrangement), yet I still find it is much more fun to meet girls while partying. As long as you are not too shy, you will see that it is quite easy to approach them on a dance floor or at a table in a club/bar in Saigon.

Naturally, some nightclubs in the city are better than others to meet girls. To make sure you are not wasting your time going from one place to another, I've listed below my top 12 favorite venues.

12 Best Bars and Nightclubs to Meet Girls in HCMC

Lush has been one of the top nightclubs in Saigon for more than 6 years already. Managed by a group that includes some foreigners, it attracts young tourists, expats, and a lot of normal girls. The ladies night every Tuesday is fantastic, with a ratio of at least 1 guy for 1 girl. There are some hookers too, but they are discreet. The entrance fee is around VND100,000.

Ratio guys to girls: 60% guys and 40% girls
Percentage of prostitutes: Around 15%
Male crowd: Foreigners (backpackers, tourists, expats), Vietnamese gay guys, Viet Kieus
Female crowd: Vietnamese girls from the middle class (typically office girls, teachers, etc) looking to meet foreigners.
Age of clients: 20-35
Pick up possibilities: High
Dress code: Shorts allowed but it's better to put pants and shoes.

While Lush is the easiest club to pick up girls in Saigon, Glow is nonetheless my favorite. It is outside, on a rooftop, offering a really cool vibe that you don't get elsewhere in the city.

The design is also perfect for meeting people. If you can secure a seat near the oval bar, you will be able to make eye contact with plenty of hot girls. All you'll have to do then is to invite them for a drink.

Girls in Glow are a usually higher class than the ones in Lush. Beware as there are more escorts too. In the same location, there is also an intimate bar called Hyde.

Ratio guys to girls: 65% guys and 35% girls
Percentage of prostitutes: Around 20%
Male crowd: Expats, businessmen, foreigners who come to Saigon regularly, some Viet Kieus.
Female crowd: Upper-middle-class Vietnamese girls + some escorts and gold-diggers.
Age of clients: 25-45
Pick up possibilities: Medium
Dress code: Casual

Bui Vien Street Bars and Clubs
There are at least 50 bars and clubs in Bui Vien, the backpacker district of HCMC. Most are lined up next to each other and you can simply walk from one bar to another until you drop. They are not all the same type: Some are bottle clubs targeting Vietnamese groups, some are hostess bars for older expats, and some are nothing but a few plastic stools on the sidewalk. In general, they are cheap, crowded, loud and tacky. With pretty much everyone drunk, it is an easy place to meet both foreign and Vietnamese girls.

Check in particular Republic and 1960 (student crowd):
