Vietnam can be considered old-world in this aspect. Men are often expected to foot the bill on a date, especially when a relationship is just starting out. While you may want to make a great first impression and woo the love of your life at a fine restaurant around Saigon, consider the precedent you will be setting and the impact that it might have on your wallet in the future.
In the end, there is no real precedent for relationships in Vietnam even if youre an expat. You’ll find that dating in Vietnam is not too different from your home country; everyone has different ideals. Thus, it is best to keep an open mind while also communicating your expectations and intentions.
