Thi Nhung (8'), Thi Van (82') and Thi Thuy Hang (89') scored a goal each for the hosts to secure the comfortable win.
After Nhung opener in just the eighth minute of the match, India's custodian Aditi Chauhan pulled off a terrific save in the 12th minute to prevent Vietnam from doubling the lead.
At the stroke of the half-hour mark, Bala Devi went for goal from the centre of the circle, only to see it missing the target by a whisker.
Coach Maymol Rocky opted to make an early substitution in the form of Daya Devi, who replaced Sumitra Kamraj in the 32nd minute.
Aditi at the goalpost was a massive presence and kept India in the match till the 80th minute. But with two goals in a space of eight minutes sealed the tie for Vietnam.
Thi Van tucked in the hosts' second goal in the 82nd minute before Hang converted from a set piece play with a minute of regulation time left on the clock.
