At the airport, while checking out, the Chinese singer kept smiling and waving to about two hundred local fans, who had braved the bad weather and queued up at the airport since early morning.
Some of his local fans even chased after his car and kept shouting out his name.
At the Caravelle, some senior members of his Vietnamese fan club were in attendance to catch a glimpse and take photos of their idol.
SGGP caught up with the head of the club, Nguyen Xuan Trang, about preparations for the upcoming fan meeting, which is to be held at the Khong Ten (Nameless) Bar.
Trang said: “All Raymond Lam items, including CDs and posters, were sold out quickly and nothing is left to be put on sale at the fan meeting. The fan meeting is simply an opportunity for fans to meet and talk with their idol.”
Raymond Lam arrived at the hotel and quickly checked in without posing with fans or answering questions from the press.
