With gaming has become more and more popular in Vietnam, there has been a new gaming style that has risen quickly: the iCafe. In Ho Chi Minh city, one of the most famous iCafe shops is Kingdom Gaming. Thanks to its white walls, natural wood, dangling filament light bulbs, it is a gorgeous place to spend your leisure time, whether you are a gamer or not. The coffee shop has a high ceiling and a clean palette. The coffee there is amazing. The staff is renowned for being very friendly. Stepping inside, you will easily recognize the fact that the normal 98-2% gender divide in gaming cafés isn’t right here. Professional gaming has quickly become a way for many Vietnamese women to relax as well as to level the playing field between men and women in a country that still has a little of 20th-century conceptions of a woman’s role. Kingdom Gaming is definitely a safe space for gaming women.
