It was already late, and we were on our way home. On impulse, we stopped at what appeared to be a massage parlor to relax and lower the cortisol levels a little bit.
We thought that we already closed off all avenues for overpricing and swindling when we clearly asked for the price of a massage, and were told that it only costs 150,000 VND for one hour for each person. And not having experienced a massage in hanoi yet, we decided to give it a try.
We should have heeded the signs. I was only given a used pair of shorts, and she was just given a towel. There was no shower room, they wore no uniforms and more importantly, they didn't know how to give a massage. We were just rubbed and poked uncomfortably. And it was all done in a room where drunken men openly entered in the middle of our massage sessions.
After enduring one hour of the lousiest and most unhygienic massage that i ever experienced, the young woman and the young man who acted as our alleged therapists aggressively insisted that we give a tip of 250,000 VND each, or a total of 500,000 VND. A forced tip more expensive than the actual service. We then realized that we had walked into a tourist trap masquerading as a massage parlor called An Viet. It was so surreal it was almost funny. But it was no longer amusing when the atmosphere became menacing, and the quest for relaxation became an encounter with extortion. And after a pointless argument hampered by a language barrier, where we were menacingly surrounded, we decided to buy peace and the lowering of our cortisol levels by paying only the agreed upon rate and a tip of 50,000 VND each. Discretion was the better part of valour in that encounter. And as we were leaving the tourist trap, we just had to laugh and shake our heads at the ingenuity of the wheedle, and resolved to include the matter of the tip when inquiring about the price of services. So be forewarned and avoid it like the plague.
