.... young people getting pressure from society/family to get married by certain age? I am talking about big cities in Vietnam. If so, any specific age?

Well my Vietnamese friend says her family wants her to settle down. But this pressure is hardly unique to China. I'd say it's stronger in India etc.

Yes I know, but obviously, it's not a rule or anything, it's not like all Chinese men will automatically reject a woman after she turns 27.

This pressure is prevalent through much of Asia, but less so in the more developed countries like Singapore.
Women in late 20s to early 30s can still marry with men of similar age or older. Men and women who have never married by mid-30s, whatever their reasons are, are viewed negatively.
Many countries in Asia have a culture of meeting prospective spouses by relatives' or friends' recommendation. Young people's relatives or friends usually say like "I know a good guy/girl", then talk about some details of the guy/girl, and then "Let me arrange a date for both of you to meet so you can know more about each other" Things then progress quickly after one or two meet-ups, either unsuitable or a plan quickly proceed to marriage. People who date but do not get married or breakup in the end are viewed negatively in developing countries in Asia.
