Da Lat is famous for its rich colonial atmosphere as well as for having many great natural sites. It might, however, be lacking slightly in its nightlife but if visitors really want to enjoy themselves they can definitely find quite a few interesting establishments at the more up-market venues. Among them are Larry's Bar and Le Rabelais Bar, both are located in the Da Lat Palace Hotel. For a choice of drinks here, there are imported beers, whiskies, cocktails and wine. Many new arrivals in Vietnam are surprised to discover locally produced wine. Thanks to the French, who introduced this beverage to the country, there is a young but growing wine industry in and around Da Lat with Vang Da Lat (aka Wine Da Lat) and Da Lat Beco the two main producers. Customers can find interesting local-made drinks on Dalat’s restaurant menus including Bordeaux-style wines, sparkling white wines, peach coolers and wine coolers. Give them a try!
Hoi An’s nightlife scene comprises trendy bistros, cafés, bars, artistic lounges, and live music venues, most of which are set within the bustling Ancient Town and Riverside. When the sun sets, the pedestrian-friendly streets of Hoi An transform into a vibrant display of traditional lanterns, folk dance performances, and lit candles floating down Thu Bon River. While most cities in Vietnam are known for turning their lights off early, these nightlife spots stay open (and busy) until 03:00 – perfect for travellers looking to party the night away with fun-loving locals. Aside from serving arguably the cheapest beer in the world, these lively bars and pubs also offer attractive happy hour promotions while local artists and international DJs play a variety of music genres.
