Do you want to relax, Sir?
When working with Vietnamese, it is very likely that you will be invited to what are so-called the "team building activities", which usually happen after working hours or on the weekend. The most common form of such entertainment is eating and drinking together, followed up by karaoke or sometimes, going to the cinema. Occasionally, you may be invited to such teamwork games as paintball, laser tag or football (soccer). Barbecue or picnic is much rarer due to the fact that there are not as many parks in Vietnam as in other Western countries.
Going to beer clubs or karaoke is the two common form of entertainments in Vietnam
When going out with your Vietnamese friends, they may introduce to you about the concept of "round" (which is known as "tăng" in Vietnamese). For many Vietnamese men, a full entertaining night includes 3 rounds. First round is in a restaurant where the main focus is eating, again enough energy in the preparation for the later rounds. Second round is either at a pub, a karaoke bar or a beer club, in which the main focus is to get drunk. Female can only join the first two rounds because the third one is where thing starts to get naughty. By common understanding, the third round is going to the massage which, in most of the cases, have a "happy ending". It is useful to know the majority of the massage shops in Vietnam offer sexual services, illegally, of course. During the massage, if the girl asks you something like "Do you want to relax, Sir?" then it means she is offering you with a happy ending. Such sexual services are also available in most of the men haircut & wash salons.
Be careful when you see massage shops like this one since most of them provide sexual services.
