Bogota Nightlife - 20 Best Bars and Nightclubs (2019)

By Thibaud (Jakarta100bars) →
Note: This Bogota nightlife guide was written by my friend Sam who lived for several years in Colombia. I invite you to read his other guides  Medellin nightlife  and Cartagena nightlife . Thibaud. Bogota is Colombia's capital and largest city (8 million people). It is much less touristy than Cartagena or Medellin, probably because of the weather (a bit cold and rainy) and the traffic situation. In terms of nightlife, though, Bogota is certainly the best place for partying in Colombia. You have at least 50 nightclubs, hundreds of bars and countless live music venues where you can dance salsa, champeta, vallenato, kizomba, zouk or tango, etc. In the following review, I will rank my 20 favorite bars and nightclubs in the city. I will also give you a list of tips to prepare your night out: Best hotels near the nightlife, how to meet girls, how to stay safe, how to get around, etc. If you still have questions, please just leave a comment at the end of the article.

I recently wrote about meeting Vietnamese girls in my article about the best dating website and apps in Vietnam . Online dating in Vietnam works great, yet I still find it is much more fun to meet girls while partying. As long as you are not too shy, you will see that it is quite easy to approach them on a dance floor or at a table in a club/bar in Saigon. Naturally, some nightclubs in the city are better than others to meet girls. To make sure you are not wasting your time going from one place to another, I've listed below my top 12 favorite venues.

12 Best Online Dating Sites and Apps in Vietnam (2019)

Meeting a girl in Vietnam has never been easier thanks to the Internet. Plenty of dating websites and apps have been launched in the past 10 years, giving you access to thousands of single Vietnamese girls from all backgrounds. For guys, Vietnam is like a treasure chest. Just upload a few decent pictures of yourself, write an interesting profile, and you are normally guaranteed to match with hundreds of pretty and smart girls. There is a catch, though: 95% of Vietnamese girls are looking for serious relationships, so forget about easy one night stands. It may happen from time to time, but that's not the best country for that (check my article Best Countries to Meet Girls in Asia ). I've used all the dating apps and sites available in Vietnam. In this article, I'll tell you which ones work the best, whether you are an expat, a traveler, a Vietnamese or even someone who's never been in the country.

How to Watch Live Sports in Indonesia? Best Streaming Sites

By Thibaud (Jakarta100bars) →
If you live in Indonesia (Bali, Jakarta, etc), you probably feel frustrated by the lack of options available to watch sports, and especially football. You can forget national TV channels. Some, such as RCTI, TransTV, and TVOne, will broadcast important events like the World Cup or the English Premier League. Yet, the image quality is often low and the commentaries are in Indonesian. Also, they won't hesitate to cut a few minutes of a game just to show commercials.

Where to Stay in Jakarta - Best Areas for Tourists

By Thibaud (Jakarta100bars) →
If you visit Jakarta as a tourist, you are probably wondering about the best areas to stay in the city . Due to the horrible traffic and the lack of public transportation, I advise you to choose your location carefully. 1 kilometer in Jakarta is like 10 kilometer in normal cities. Just going to the opposite side of a street by car can sometimes take up to 30 minutes! If you don't have time to read my entire review , the following paragraph is a short summary: The best place to stay in Jakarta, either you are a tourist or a businessman, is around Plaza Indonesia or Grand Indonesia, for instance:  Kempinski ,  Grand Hyatt ,  Pullman ,  Mandarin Oriental . It is an expensive area though so if you are on a budget, you can stay near Sarinah Mall instead. You'll find backpacker hostels ( Jalan Jaksa ), 2-star hotels ( Favehotel ), 3-star hotels ( Holiday Inn  or  Ibis Tamarin ) and 4-star hotels ( Morrissey , Four Points by Sheraton , AONE or  Akmani ).
