Vietnam Nightlife Guide
As the sun goes down and the tourists return to the city from their various sightseeing and day trips, Vietnam nightlife starts getting brighter and busier. There are many places and activities to pick and choose from.
Here are some useful Vietnam nightlife tips about where to visit to have the best possible experiences.
1. Bia Hoi Junction, Hanoi
Vietnam nightlife is incomplete without a visit to the Bia Hoi Joint at the corner of Ta Hien and Luong Ngoc Quyen streets in the old quarter of Hanoi. Bia Hoi is the famous draught beer variety of Vietnam and is a quintessential part of modern Vietnamese culture. Dozens of bia hoi joints with their laid out seating arrangements of plastic chairs attract tourists and expats alike to this bustling part of the town at night. There are makeshift food stalls as well, selling skewered meat and fried meats to go with the pints of bia hoi. The food carnival-like atmosphere here is a perfect place for some budget drinking and chatting up with your companions.
2. Night markets, Ho Chi Minh City
Vietnam night markets in Ho Chi Minh City are not only an important part of nightlife but of shopping as well. Ben Thanh is the most famous one of the lot. Hanh Thong Tay Night Market is very popular with the young people. Minh Phung, Ba Chieu, Hoa Binh and Ky Hoa are some other night markets. All of these markets sell varieties of clothes, accessories, footwear, cosmetics and accessories at cheap rates and are featured with stalls of delicious local food. For a change of scene, visit Ho Thi Ky night market to walk through the maze of vividly colourful flowers, all freshly plucked and watered.
3. Bars and pubs, Nha Trang
There are numerous Vietnam nightclubs, bars, and pubs to let your hair down, enjoy a drink or two and dance to the groove of live or DJ music. For those who love partying and clubbing, the best place to be is definitely Nha Trang. With hippy bars like Krazy Kim and classy spots like Sailing Club, Nha Trang offers some the best nightlife in Vietnam. While in Nha Trang, one must try out the Louisiane Brewhouse. This beachfront haunt makes their own beers from special malts straight from Australia and New Zealand, and also has a wide range of cuisine to keep the customers happy all night long.
4. Opera House
For a different and unique sort of experience of nightlife in Vietnam, one can pay a visit to the Opera House of Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh City. The grandeur of the neoclassical structures, with the most heart-touching performances on the stage and the ambience of the halls, together make for an exhilarating experience. The high pillars, balcony seats and the glass rooms set the tone for a perfect night at the opera.
5. Hanoi Water Puppet Show
Although it does not continue late into the night, the water puppet show of Hanoi is one of the most interesting ways to enjoy Hanoi Vietnam nightlife. At the Thang Long Water Puppets Theatre overlooking Hoan Kiem Lake, this live performance show has been going on for decades now. It is a unique Vietnamese traditional art, which has been preserved with lots of love and devotion by the artists. The content of the performances include depiction of Vietnamese daily life of farmers or workers, entertaining events like dragon dancing or historical storytelling about Vietnamese legends and myths.
