Best karaoke in Saigon

activities - Saigon/HCMC: Nov. 1, 2013
By:

The Vietnamese take their singing seriously, so if you are a keen crooner, belter, screamer or wailer, check out some of Ho Chi Minh City's karaoke bars. Prices average between VND100,000 to VND120,000 per hour, depending on the room size. Drinks and snacks are available. A few brews or inspired cheerleading from enthusiastic hostesses may help motivate you to take the microphone if you are feeling sheepish.

Karaoke is a Japanese word which means 'empty orchestra'. In Saigon karaoke is big business and a popular pursuit. In fact, it seems like every square block of the city has its own karaoke hangout, not to mention the portable machines blaring out music and (usually) drunken vocals from so many HCMC living rooms. Inside karaoke bars you will find books jam-packed with words to classic and contemporary tunes, American rock and roll and, of course, beloved Vietnamese songs. You can rent a room or large suite by the hour, and generally, the more people you bring along, the more fun it is. Some karaokes do not have a good reputation, they are considered as hidden brothels because many prostitutes may work there. In this case, men pay to have girls accompany them in the room.

We are listing below some of the most popular and famous karaokes in Saigon:

There are hundreds of karaokes in Saigon so it would be difficult to list all of them here. There are also many Japanese KTVs and Korean Karaokes in District 1 in Ngô Văn Năm street and Le Thanh Ton street. Be careful as some of those are disguised brothels with sexual services provided. If there are many sexy girls waiting outside to lure customers in, you should become suspicious. You will also notice that those sexy karaokes are located very close from massage parlours.
