Everybody knows Hon Rom is Mui Ne's red light district. Ever since the first whore-house... er... resort opened up 5 or 6 years ago, horny Saigonese businessmen, Koreans and single white guys would head up there to see the "ladies." As long as the smut stayed way up there on the little cape where we didn't have to see it, no one seemed to care.
Now things are different. If you are a foreign male, try walking around anywhere in Mui ne at night, and you'll be bombarded by shouting motorbike drivers:
"LADY-MASSAGE! BOOM-BOOM! (code-words for prostitutes) BIEN NAM-HON ROM! (one of the most popular whore-houses) MARIJUANA! (be thankful this isn't saigon--they opening less much harder drugs)"
I guess we males can be thankful that we aren't females though--all they get are sexual slurs and genitals flashed in their faces by the motorbike drivers.
Bien Nam, Tien Trang and the other dumps in Hon Rom are all synonymous with prostitution but unfortunately it no longer stays there. Mui Ne's motorbike drivers bring them down to Mui Ne to service tourists on-site and now and we have lost our family atmosphere.
Why do we have to be just like Nha Trang and Vung Tau? Don't you people--you motorbike drivers, your bar and guesthouse owners, you resort and restaurant managers--don't you know when you sell these young women that you are selling your daughters, your sisters, your own mother? How would you like your own daughter to become a prostitute? It may surprise some of you to know they already are...
