hm let me share my experience.. i think yess vietnamese generally are very very very rude..
1st. when we each airport, me n a friend of mine encounter a rude immigration officer. me n my fren went to the counter together, and we were being scolded and ask to go to the counter one by one with hand gestures as if we were beggars.
2nd. we board a taxi well known for their ethics,called 'vinnasun' taxi, yes they dont charge more than what we should pay, but the driver cant speak english at all and suggested us to go to an expensive hotel while we had clearly told him 15 dollars was our limit budget. when we refused he simply stop by the roadside and and ignore my request to send me to a few hotels a mentioned to him. say thank u? never from a vietnamese. what more an indication to say sorry that he could not help us.
3rd.the only nicest thing was our hotel receptionist name 'HA' (hoang poang hotel, no 156 le thanh ton street, district 1) who was really helpful and nice. other staff were equally rude and less helpfull.
4th. we when to ben thant market the next morning, feeling great and wish we could shop like crazy, but the moment we step into the market, i could not help but noticing how rude a viatnamese can be. they were pulling our hands, give a ridiculous price, when we negotiate they either make a facial gesture or say something in vietnamese language, before giveng a cheaper but still ridiculous price. when we try to walk away, either they will curse us in vietnamese languange, or push our backs, or pull the material we are holding.
not rude enough? wait, we have more
5th. we went to a spa. my fren wish to do facial at ARMANI SPA, dong du street. she thought the price of 35dollars, very expensive will come with a great service. however, the person in charge was very rough, she pour something on the face roughly, with the bottle mouth consistently touching her face, and there is no basic facial service after all. it was so amatur. when she complaned and said that she will write a bad review about them, theyu said GO AHEAD!! no sorry, no discount no nothing!!!
6th. we went back to ben thant market, finding tailor for baju kurung. frustrated, they give us price of which we can do 2 baju kurung in malaysia! but thinking taht they can do it in one day, we gave it a shot. wow! the overconfident girl take the measurement, n refuse to take the sample we brought.she even say her baju will be great and we will come to do more.. n dang!!!! the baju was oversized and outa shape!! even they had corrected the baju for us, but the did not say sorry or thank u, they blame the tailor and told us it is not their fault or at least something tat will make us go there again.
7th. went to another market in district 5, worst. the clever tailor keep on interrupting what we were trying to tell her! she acted like she had been sewing for a hundred years. when the baju kurung was ready, it was out of shape, not following what we want. when she came and send it to the hotel, she blame us and say we agreed to what she had said.
7th back to the airport, same thing. rude immigration officer. very very rude, chewing gum, talk to us while looking away from us, shouts, playing with his cellphone, just rude. some stupidpretty girl almost cause me to fell as she was rushing to the airport door. her luggage rrub my right leg and her body crash my right shoulder. and she simply pass by. very very rude. if i have a choice, i would never go to vietnam again.
