Ho Chi Minh City or Saigon has a very active nightlife with plenty of live music bars, clubs and sky bars. The sky bars in HCMN range from laid back places to more fancy places.
Chill Sky Bar is one of the more fancy sky bars in HCMC. The cocktails are perfectly made (and have London prices), the crowd is dressed up and there is a live DJ that plays really cool house music mixes. Apart from this great party vibe, you have a stunning view of HCMC’s skyline!
When we were at Chill Sky Bar, the crowd was quite mixed with western and Vietnamese people. Everyone was in a great mood and the party was still going on when we were leaving around 1.30am.
Hence if you are up for some really good cocktails in a fancy setting with a stunning view, definitely pay a visit to Chill Sky Bar. It opens at 5.30pm just in time to watch the sunset :)
The nightlife in Ho Chi Minh City is amazing! There are so many things to do from fancy sky bars, jazz venues, crazy beer bars, house music clubs to lots of live music venues. One of the live music bars we went to was the Acoustic Bar which is located in Saigon’s District 3.
The Acoustic Bar is a vibrant, yet small, live music venue that features a variety of talents from Ho Chi Minh City. When we visited the bar around 10pm it was packed – in a positive way. We still found some space to stand and watch the performances. The artists generally performed around 3 songs and then announced the next artist. The music genres varied from soul and pop to reggae and hip hop depending on which artist was currently on stage. The vibe of the Acoustic Bar is fun and the crowd is actively engaging (singing along, dancing, applauding) with the artists. Overall it’s a really laid back place that is fun during the week as well as at the weekend.
The photos below are actually showing the entrance of the Acoustic Bar rather than the interior. So if you feel like getting some fresh air you have a hip place to sit ;)
Phu Quoc is a beautiful island and just a few hours away from Ho Chi Minh City. We have been here now for almost a week which we spent exploring the island by scooter and relaxing in a beautiful resort in the north of the island. Now, after having relocated more to the south, we took the scooter to go to the Bai Sao beach today.
Getting to Bai Sao from Duong Dong took us circa 30-45min by scooter. We stopped a few times for photos and also grabbed something to drink on the way. Of course we left the hotel just before 12 pm when the sun is at its best, well, or worst for everyone else. Hence I dressed up again with my lovely scooter-gear, hiding 100% from the sun!
Once you have parked your scooter you can already see the beauty of the beach through the palm trees. Just a few metres more and you are in paradise :)
If you get hungry or thirsty, there is a nice beach bar called Paradiso. We had some soft drinks there and food.
