When you have finally had enough of raving it up in Ibiza or partying hard on Nissi Beach the time comes where you start to look a bit further in search of the best nightlife. In this guide we will help you find the 5 best places to go clubbing in Asia.
1. Hong Kong – In many ways down town Hong Kong reminds us of a night out in central London. This may have something to do with it being a former British colony and being a banking hub. No matter what day of the week it is people will be out drinking in the areas of Wan Chai, Central and of course the infamous Lan Kwai Fong.
Alcohol prices in HK are comparable with the prices here in London, so if you are looking for dirt cheap alcohol this is not the place to find it. The bar hopping scene more than makes up for the drink prices and getting to and from places is super cheap with the MTR and Taxis.
2. Thailand – No Asian clubbing list would be complete without the country that hosts the world famous Full Moon Parties on Koh Phangan every month. The great thing about Thailand is there is great nightlife all over the country. You have Bangkok, Koh Phangan, Koh Sumai, Phuket & Pattaya. No matter what you are looking for, you will find it in the beautiful country of Thailand. Internal travel is also cheap so in a 2 week holiday you can easily visit 2-3 places and sample a bit of everything.
3. Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam – The war is long over and Ho Chi Minh City boast some of the best nightlife in Asia these days. One of the great things about a night out here is that the drinks are cheap and the people are friendly. Bar hopping is easy as lots of bars are near each other.
4. Singapore – Again not one of the cheapest places you will find, but defiantly one of the best. Singapore has many mega clubs that some people regard as the best in the region. Head to Clarke Quay to find them and just see where the night takes you. If you can remember what happened in the morning you have done well.
World class DJ’s are also known to grace the clubs of Singapore, so you may just get your Ibiza fix afterall.
5. Seoul, South Korea – The place where expats, locals and tourists all mix to create on of the best party atmospheres found anywhere. Make sure you investigate the areas of Itaewon, Hongdae, Gangnam & Apgujeong. The later is where you will find the mega clubs however it is also the most costly region to party.
In our opinion these are the 5 best places to go clubbing in Asia.
