Ho Chi Minh City has started a crackdown campaign on hotels and massage parlors that offer sex services despite a legal ban on prostitution. 
On October 7, inspectors raided Anh Duong Hotel and Massage Parlor in Tan Phu District and found two masseuses having sex with their clients. 
The masseuses said that each of the clients paid VND150,000 for sex, not including a tip of at least VND200,000.
The women said they worked without a contract or salary and their income came from the tips. 
Earlier on September 24, inspectors raided another massage parlor, Anh Duong, in District 2 and found similar violations.
On October 7, inspectors also found sex workers at Sai Gon Moi Hotel in District 3 and Linh Giang Hotel in District 10.
Penalties for these hotels and massage parlors are being considered. 
Sex work is prohibited in Vietnam.
