The Southeast Asian neighbors, Vietnam and Cambodia, have lots of things that make tourists venture out to these countries and explore the untapped ideas. Yes, over here in this write-up, we are talking about the nightlife of these two wonderful countries.
If you have already decided to embark on Vietnam and Cambodia tours, this is quite an exciting blog for you as we have highlighted some of the scintillating places to enjoy the nightlife in these wonderful countries.
So, without much ado, let’s get started with the list.
Wandering on the Streets of the Old Quarter of Hanoi
Hanoi is one of the best places to enjoy the nightlife. Here, you will see as soon as the sun sets down and the night sets in, tourists participate in not only street activities but also the ambiance of pubs and bars.
Then visit the Hanoi Opera House and Hoan Kien Lake if you miss out on the pub’s vibe. Listen to soothing music in a lounge or bar and drink some draught beer at “bia hoi junction.” It is the perfect caricature of Hanoi nightlife. The exciting part is that most of the nightclubs are situated in the Old Quarter, which makes it easy for tourists to interact with local people as well as foreigners.
Youths have a gala time by enjoying the electronic dance music in bars or pubs in the Old Quarter’s area. If you do not enjoy the frantic vibes, select some coffee shops or Binh Minh Jazz’s Club to enjoy the live jazz of saxophonist Quyen Van Minh.
Alternatively, you can even move away from the center of Hanoi to see the modern art water performance of Tonkin Show. Lots of compliments were given to this place in CNN’s article. By spending only a single night to experience, all these activities will make your trip pleasurable.
Check Out Apsara Show - Khmer Dance of Cambodia
If you ever visit Cambodia, do not ever ignore the traditional art performances and the Apsara court dance, which is one of the most sparkling dance performances that you will ever see, which has been handed down from ancient times of the royal family. Most of the dance performances in Siem Reap consist of classical dancing and folk theatre.
Apsara dance is the center of attraction. It consists of a performance usually performed by 4 to 6 beautiful and traditional dancers. You can enjoy your evenings with Apsara performances with dinner at Khmer restaurants. The dinner usually commences at 18:00 or 19:00, and dance performances begin at 19:30 or 20:00. It encompasses 4 to 5 dances in approximately 45 to 60 minutes.
The cost of enjoying the Khmer dinner and watching Apsara dance is approximately US $40 per person. The lowest price in mid-range restaurants is the US $20. The prices become expensive as you move to qualitative restaurants and professional dance shows.
We recommend you to select restaurants in big hotels so that you can have a great time enjoying the dance performance of the most professional Apsara dancers. In addition to this, you will enjoy the traditional Cambodian dishes made from great chefs. It is definitely worth every penny.
Have a Gala Time at Chamber “Ca Hue” on a Dragon Boat
“Ca Hue'' is a piece of classical Vietnamese music on Hue. It is considered to be one of the most cultural beauties of the ancient capital. If you ever travel to Hue without enjoying the Hue songs on the Huong River, chances are, you are missing out on something significant to explore in the city. In prehistoric times, only kings and great officials had the right to enjoy these performances. However, back to the present, the Hue folk song on the Huong River is still preserved and recited to the tourists.
This classical Vietnamese music is performed on floating dragon boats while crossing the Huong River. On the journey at night, you can see the colorful lights of Tang Tien Bridge across the Huong River. The sight of boats carrying boys and girls dancing, rejoicing, worshipping and playing musical instruments is a delight to see.
Once the journey is over in the boat, tourists can then explore the nightlife in Hue by taking a walk, enjoying the street food and joining the exciting folk games. Nguyen Chieu night street is the place that attracts lots of tourists during the nighttime.
