Karaoke, weddings, beer pubs are some of the places with the worst noise in Vietnam, readers complained.

"Every day we have 3 to 6 karaoke parties competing. Sometimes rooftops or until 11 p.m. Drunks piss on my wall and where everyone walks. This is just more blah blah blah no action. If they were smart, go indoors, close the windows, turn down the volume, and sing all night. They show no respect for their children or neighbors."

"People simply have no respect for others. Take karaoke at all hours at the level of a jet, for example."

"The worst of the worst noise in HCMC is the insanely high volume at weddings and at karaoke places."

"Most of this noise is from dinner conversation... indoor voices people. Indoor voices. Sshhhh. There. That's nice."

"My worst nightmare is drinking at bia hoi (lager) pub in Hanoi. The locals are shouting at each other so loud there."

"What really grinds my gears is the useless and constant shouting."

"Yet the Vietnam government wonders why the tourism return percentage is so low. This is a major reason."
