Darling dating would love
Saigon Darlings is a Vietnamese singles site. The site is especially popular with men seeking marriage withÂ Vietnamese mail order brides.
Vietnam is booming, and the Vietnamese economy is one to watch. As the country opens up to outside investors, improved transportation links make it much more convenient for mail order bride hunters to visit as well. Recently I learnt that Vietnam is seeking funding for a mega-airport to rival those in Singapore and Hong Kong. All this is great news if you like the more traditional Asian women from a country like Vietnam!
Saigon Darlings is just one in a large network of dating sites that cater for men seeking mail order brides. Other sites with an Asian datingÂ theme include Indonesian Darlings, Malaysia Darlings, Cebuanas and the Asian Dating Mall.
Note that despite the name of the website, the city of Saigon is actually called Ho Chi Minh City these days. So don’t be surprised if you don’t find any ladies on a Vietnamese dating site who say they live in Saigon!
My Saigon Darlings Review
There are a lot of Asian dating websites (see below for some alternatives to the Saigon Darling site).
So what’s special about this site?
It’s actually quite hard to think of a unique selling point that this site offers. Other sites have better search engines and the girls’ profiles are more detailed. Members can upload several photos of themselves, but they’re quite small.
Each member is given a rating by the other members – not all sites have this feature. Is it useful? Maybe not, as everyone has a different idea of their perfect match.
It’s also quite an expensive dating site to use. At the time of writing, the annual membership plans were more expensive than the Cupid Media sites, or smaller indi dating sites like China Love Match. In fact I paid $100 less to join China Love Match than I would have had to pay to join Saigon Darlings. China Love Match has some great anti-fraud measures to keep out the scammers. Other sites like Vietnam Cupid have superior matchmaking features to help you find the Vietnam woman of your dreams.
Alternatives to SaigonDarlings
What other alternatives are there in the world of Vietnam dating?
The most obvious site is Vietnam Cupid. This site is operated by Cupid Media, who run a large number of very popular Asian dating sites. This site is totally free to join and you only need to take out a Gold or Platinum subscription if you want to contact the free members (who are mainly the women).
One problem with these Vietnamese specific sites like Saigon Darling and Vietnam Cupid is that they pretty much tie you into finding a Vietnamese bride. If you’re not 100% sure you want a Vietnamese love in your life then it can be better to sign up to an Asian dating site with girls fromÂ a wider range of countries on it. Popular sites include AsianDating.com, Cherry Blossoms and Asian Kisses. As far as Vietnamese girls go, AsianDating.com has over 1000 registered on the site. So this site is well worth a look. Plus you’ve got the advantage of the site also having any number of Chinese, Thai andÂ Filipino women on it. If you’re interested in Saigon women, well there are hundreds registered as living in Ho Chi Minh City.
Asian Kisses is another popular site. At the time of writing this site had 278 Vietnamese women. Again, many put their location as Ho Chi Minh City.
Of course you might also want to widen your search outside of Vietnam. Not so many foreign men look for Vietnamese brides, so it’s often hard going if you have a problem with a Vietnamese woman and you don’t know where to turn.
Chinese dating is an alternative – there are huge numbers of beautiful Chinese ladies on Asian dating websites. I’ve mentioned China Love Match, but there are also many other sites. Like Vietnamese beauties, Chinese ladies are stylish and elegant, and are rarely seen without their sun parasolÂ to shade their delicate skin from the scorching subtropical sun. The coastal cities in Guangxi and Guangdong Provinces are great places to travel to in order to meet marriage minded Chinese ladies. The ladies in these cities don’t tend to look a lot different to Vietnamese women, especially if their families are local to the area.
So Saigon Darlings is worth a look, as there aren’t so many Vietnamese specific dating sites around. However, Vietnam Cupid, Asian Kisses or AsianDating.com ultimately provide better value for money as far as Vietnamese online dating is concerned.
