Một hai ba dô!

What is Một hai ba dô?

The meaning of Một hai ba dô:

  • Technically, “Một hai ba dô” should be spelled “Một, hai, ba vô”, which literally means “One, two, three, enter”. This phrase can be heard everywhere in Vietnam whenever there’s a drinking party when everybody clinks glasses and drinks their alcoholic beverages at the same time. This merely is a call for everyone to drink their beer, regardless of how much.
  • Note that “Một, hai, ba dô” does not mean “Bottoms up”, which would be “Trăm phần trăm”, meaning “100%”
