Would be a lie to tell that working remotely from Asia hasn’t put a great deal of influence on our choice of night life and partying.
Our platform evedo is dedicated to creating better events (a lot of parties are involved here!) experiences. We are aiming to build the first decentralised ecosystem for events and events organising, entirely on blockchain — pretty much anything from the general bookings to ticketing. When we started building it, even as a concept we thought about the bigger events which normally requires a lot of effort and organisation and normally needs the help of dozens to get it done properly.
It was the traveling in Asia that actually questioned us about the independent and alternative parties, that normally happen on the beach or in hidden places. How can they also participate in the evolution of events? Which got us more inspired to research and write on the topic in our new “eventolution” sub blog. More content to be added here soon!
So, which are the top 12 locations to go partying in Asia? You may immediately suggest Bangkok and Tokyo or the busy streets of Hong Kong. And you will be entirely true here! But we decided to bring you a selection with a tip of island, sun and beach adventures, that you should put in your bucket list of future experiences. Do you think some of those locations can adopt the usage of blockchain in terms of events and general entertainment? Can you suggest how?
Enjoy our suggestions. Let us know if you have more to add.
Of course, we start with Thailand, where we have been residing for the past 2 months!
- Phuket, Thailand
Forgive us for being obvious, but we figured we can start with the very classics. A true hedonist’s wet dream.
2. Koh Phi Phi, Thailand
Koh Phi Phi offers a proper party with an element of the chill to boot. At night, you’ll find every bar on the island rammed. From the beach bars with their fire shows to the mini-clubs on the hostel strip, all fuelled by cheap beers and infamous ‘buckets’, you’ll be able to find all you need.
During the day, you can slip slowly in and out of your hang over induced coma on one of the numerous beaches or, even better, visit the famous beach from the film… well, The Beach. Otherwise there’s all the cheap pad thai you could ever hope for to soak it all up all that vicious booze.
3. Koh Phangan, Thailand
Home of the original Full Moon Party, how could we forget Koh Phangan. Regardless of how well known it is, it’s surely more than earned its place on this list.
Rumoured to have begun when a group of backpackers sat upon the beach at Haad Rin, playing guitars to celebrate one of their birthdays, it’s now a ridiculous, festival-like party on the beach that pulls in around 30,000 people each month.
4. Langkawi, Malaysia
Forget Kuala Lumpur and definitely leave Penang well alone, if you’re looking for a proper party in Malaysia, this little island is it. During the sunlight hours it’s all about relaxing on some of the most perfect beaches you’re ever likely to see (and these will come in very useful later), while in the evening things get a little crazy.
5. KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA
The capital of Malaysia might not be the most popular place to party among South-East Asia backpackers — but this is one incredible city with an abundance of amazing nightlife options! I’ve spent a decent amount of time in Kuala Lumpur, and I’ve had some really great nights out partying in the city.
6. Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam
7. Boracay, Philippines
It was a tossup between the country’s capital, Manila, and this little bad boy, but ultimately Boracay had to win out. While the island of Boracay is split up into rather military sounding ‘stations’, nothing else on the island is anywhere near so disciplined. Attracting some of the best DJs on the planet and with over four kilometres of beach, mainly lined with bars and cheap beers, it’s a hedonistic paradise.
8. Kuta, Bali
Kuta is where you will find the perpetual party, fit for all ages. Sounds rather like a fairy tale, doesn’t it? Well, it’s not far off.
After watching the perfect sunset on the beach with a few bottles of beers it’s time to hit some of the open air bars for some beers and a little chow. Once you feel sufficiently amped up and right for the part, it’s time to seek out a club. The cool thing here is there’s actually a choice. If you’re looking for something big, loud and sweaty, then there’s no shortage of dance and electro clubs playing host to local and international acts.
9. Sihanoukville, Cambodia
This is Cambodia’s top party island where the drinks are cheap and the nights are raucous! Hit up Serendipity and Occheuteal beaches for some great bars with some incredible views over that beautiful blue sea and beer it up in style.
10.Koh Rong, Cambodia
Now this really is the jewel in this list. If you want your party to have a tinge of the Robinson Crusoe to it, this is the one for you. It’s not the craziest of parties and way more about the atmosphere. It’s still in the embryonic stage, where travellers have found a piece of paradise, tell others, and slowly they all congregate.
11. Van Vieng, LAOS
The hedonistic party capitol of Laos has gotten a bad reputation in the past decade for being a destination fueled by booze, drugs, sex, and irresponsible backpackers. Several years ago a few backpackers died in Vang Vieng, and the local authorities finally cracked down on the city.
12 Boracay, PHILIPPINES
While Boracay might not be on the typical South-East Asia backpacker route, it’s hands down one of the best places to party in South-East Asia.
