While Thailand has always been the heavy-hitter as far as expat or vacation destinations in Southeast Asia for international travelers (especially single males like myself), there’s another country that is very much up and coming – Vietnam.
Let’s talk about about the differences between Vietnamese girls and Thai girls to help you decide which of these countries should you visit first if you are more interested in the ladies than the views or attractions.
First off, I’ve written a very comprehensive post about Thai girls that goes as in depth as it can – click here to read it.
I did a similar thing with Vietnamese girls – make sure to read my full guide also, if you really want to get in depth with them.
BUT if you don’t, this article will pit them against each other, quickly, and give you the answer to the burning question: Vietnamese Girls vs. Thai Girls – which are better and easier for dating?
Now that Vietnam is climbing the ranks of desirable destinations, combined with Thailand falling off a bit, it’s worth taking a look at the difference between Vietnamese girls and Thai girls.
Physical Characteristics – Vietnamese Girls vs. Thai Girls
Which girls are better looking? This is all about personal preferences, and in today’s article we’re talking about mine.
So in my opinion, I’d rate Vietnamese girls slightly higher – albeit not by much. And this is because they just have more of a “feminine” look, and I like feminine women. It’s hard to describe in words, but you’ll know it when you see it.
Vietnamese girls just tend to have a “softer”, friendlier face like this:
On the flip side, Thai girls tend to have a bit more of a butterfaced look. And they just don’t look quite as feminine or happy in my opinion. But that doesn’t make them ugly.
These definitely are not perfect comparisons, but I think you can get where I’m going with this. Vietnamese girls just tend to have a slightly prettier face.
It’s possible that it’s because of Chinese influence to the North, which is definitely distinctive from the typical Southeast Asian look.
Vietnamese girls tend to have a bit more to love than Thai girls – and this is in a good way. They just have better features than Thais. But if you’re expecting a Colombia-type of jaw-dropping booty, you’ll still be quite disappointed.
While I’ve been giving Vietnamese girls a lot of love in this opening section, it’s not a huge difference between the women of the two culture.
Needless to say, at the highest quality both countries have absolutely stunning women.
If you held a gun to my head, I’d say the average Vietnamese girl falls at around 8.5 out of 10 (which is a great grade for the average), while the Thai girls stay at 8.
So… not huge difference and you will definitely find plenty of stunning ladies in each country.
But, there are other factors that may influence you…
How Easy Are Vietnamese Girls?
Everybody knows now that Thai girls are relatively easy, especially in some of the more touristy or farang-friendly cities.
That’s not the case in Vietnam. Well, they’re attracted by foreigners – but cultural norms dictate that they cannot be promiscuous. This is both a good and bad thing.
On one hand, getting it fast and easy is going to be difficult; on the other hand, you’ll have zero issues actually getting dates.
This just means that girls will not go home with you on the first night you meet in a club, or even on a first date in many cases. You won’t be able to escalate much in public – even holding hands is usually reserved for couples.
Basically, if you’re looking to rack up an insane amount of notches (especially in a short period of time), Vietnam is NOT where you want to go.
Even after you’ve been, had some experience, and set up a bunch of dates from Vietnam Cupid – it’s still going to be difficult to do it quickly. It will take a while.
Whereas in Thailand, things are going to be really easy and straightforward. You shouldn’t have any problems finding girls interested in going to your place after the first date together.
Livability of the Countries
While this post is about Thai girls vs. Vietnamese girls, it’s worth mentioning what it’s like living in the respective countries.
While not as important for a short trip, for more permanent expats or for a longer term, this can make or break your success with girls (how much you like or dislike a city).
While cities like Bangkok and Chiang Mai are very modern, the same can’t always be said for Vietnam. First-world amenities are harder to come by and will cost you a pretty penny.
This is less likely to happen in Thailand, where the modern expat hub has been around much longer.
Of course, with this also comes a general more “westernization” vibe. This means that girls are definitely more experienced with dating foreign guys, fast food is rampant, and other pitfalls of the west are present. Whereas Vietnam is a bit more traditional and conservative.
It really just depends what you want. If your main goal is meeting women that are easier to bring back home, Thailand is the place for you.
Vietnam is not.
But, if you’re looking for something a bit more serious, or perhaps even someone to settle down with – I’d highly suggest looking at Vietnam first.
Even if you just want to base up for a few months and get some work done, you’ll likely be thrilled with the prospects you’ll have.
Both countries are great and both Vietnamese girls, as well as Thai women are absolutely amazing, so you can’t really go very wrong even if you toss a coin. But if you are to ask me, you know the answer.
