Nightlife in Hoi An is concentrated within the tourist-friendly Ancient Town and Riverside, featuring trendy bistros, cafes, bars, artistic lounges, and live music venues. Unlike cities like Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh City, most of these nightlife venues are within walking distance and stay open until 03:00, where you can barhop with fellow tourists and fun-loving locals. When the sun sets, the streets of Hoi An Ancient Town are illuminated with hundreds of colourful lanterns, traditional dance performances, and candles floating down Thu Bon River. Meanwhile, numerous bars and pubs offer attractive happy hour promos with local artists and international DJS playing a variety of music genres. Whether you prefer a relaxing evening or dancing till the sun rises, our list of Hoi An’s most popular nightlife is below.
Hai Phong nightlife might not be as active as Hanoi – only a few hours away by car. But if you explore a bit, especially around the Minh Khai District, you’ll find all sorts of choices. Bars, nightclubs, discos and karaoke joints are to be found while the live music scene here has become more and more common and quite active lately. This comes as something of a surprise considering Hai Phong is not a big party town. Though it’s true that most businesses close their doors early, there are a few places that stay open after midnight. Visitors just need to ask around and the best source is at your hotel tour or receptionist desk. They should be able to lead you to the nearest cool place for a fun night out.
