In recent times, Chinese matchmaking agencies have discovered that Vietnam has become the top destination for Chinese men looking for a Vietnamese bride. This is the reversal of trend where China is seen as an “exporter” of China brides to Asian countries.
Why do Chinese men choose Vietnamese women as their bride?

- Vietnam is very similar to China lifestyle and culture
A typical Chinese wedding in major China cities such as Beijing and Shanghai are expensive costing more than 100,000 yuan (USD $ 14,600).
Under $5k budget Vietnamese wedding
Vietnamese wedding package only cost up to 30,000 yuan (USD $ 4400) to 50,000 yuan (USD $ 7400). A typical Vietnamese bride trip takes around 15 days. Expenses include travel, accommodation, betrothal gifts and 80 table wedding banquet.

Generalization of a Vietnamese woman
She is young, pretty, hardworking and most important of all submissive. A Vietnamese woman will shower you with attention and care which no man can hardly resist.
A Vietnamese woman will fill up your bowl with rice, peeled the shell off the prawn, put the meat in your bowl and wait for you to begin eating before doing so.
Buying a Vietnamese wife?
Due to the weak economic situation in Vietnam, many Vietnamese women in villages have formed the idea of marrying foreigners to seek a better life for their family. In this case Chinese men are the “foreigners”.
Because of many years of war, Vietnam’s male-to-female ratio is 3:5 and there are many Vietnamese girls willing to marry abroad.
However Vietnam’s “bride economy” is not new as there men from Asian countries such as Hong Kong and Taiwan who have already pick Vietnamese women as their bride.
There are many social issues with this kind of marriage and there are too many untold stories.
Will this kind of marriage bring happiness to the couple? Will they live happily ever after? A question not for a third party to judge.
