So after becoming Vietnamese millionaire's we headed out for a stroll which took us to the Saigon River and in a round-about-way we ended up walking down a narrow, not so touristy, little street which had us walking right by a small boutique spa. I said to Doreen "why not check it out". Once inside Doreen put up a token struggle "well who will look after the boys while I am getting my deluxe hot rock massage?" Uhmmmmm, I don't know, maybe me??? With the token struggle out of the way she skipped off to a massage area, I think she was whistling something cheery and clicking her heels together. Little did I know that the continued theme of friendliness and affection for the boys would continue. We were shown the back of the spa where they had a little garden area which was very Feng Shui. Most of the time there were four girls on the boys, after a while I stopped hovering around them and just sat down to let the girls hang out with Evan and Keegan - they all had a great time by the looks of it.
The spa timing worked out quite well. The initial blast of 90 degree heat combined with the six million people living in HCM City (with over half of them owning motorcycles) makes for a bit of hot culture shock. Doreen and I were making out fine but the boys were pretty happy to kick it back in the cool shade and Zen-like setting at the spa.
Like I said, the boys were well looked after. By the time Doreen was finished her hour long session the boys didn't want to leave.
Somehow, Chy Spa had managed to create a tranquil slice of spa heaven,when just outside it's door was the throbbing city. It was a bargain, in Canada the same treatment would have cost 5-6 times as much. Doreen gave the spa a rating of "It was Dreamy".
