By Thibaud (Jakarta100bars) →
I've spent most of the past two years trying the nightlife of various Asian cities, from Indonesia to Kazakhstan. I've written individual reports for most of them (see the tag Asia Nightlife ), but I thought it could be useful to make a brief summary recapitulating everything I've learned. Based on my travels, these are my 20 favorite cities for partying in Asia (I ranked them by order of preference):

Maldives Nightlife - Best Resorts with Clubs, Bars, and Alcohol

By Thibaud (Jakarta100bars) →
The Maldives is not the best place in the world to experience a crazy nightlife, mainly because tourists are spread on hundreds of different islands. It also doesn't help that most inhabitants are strict Muslims and that alcohol is prohibited in all local areas. On the country's 200 "local" islands, you cannot drink or buy any alcohol, even a simple beer. Doing so is only permitted on the "resort" islands, on which the luxury hotels are built. As a result, the Maldives has never been considered a party destination. Its atmosphere is relaxed and quiet, and a popular choice for couples on honeymoon. If the thought of going to bed by 8 PM every night during your stay sounds too boring, don't despair. You can still find a few bars/clubs within some of the resorts and hotels. The following nightlife review will give you a quick overview of your options for drinking and partying in the Maldives. How much does it cost to drink alcohol in

12 Best Nightclubs to Meet Girls in Saigon

By Thibaud (Jakarta100bars) →
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 (especially VietnamCupid , Bumble, and SeekingArrangement ), 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.

Indonesia Nightlife: 12 Best Cities for Partying

By Thibaud (Jakarta100bars) →
I've partied in all the major cities in Indonesia (as well as in much smaller ones!) so I thought it could be useful to summarize everything I've learned in one article. Hopefully it will give you ideas for your next trip! Without further ado, please find below the 12 best cities/regions for nightlife in Indonesia: Jakarta Jakarta is without any doubt the best city for partying in Indonesia. There are at least 20 decent nightclubs, more than 100 bars, and thousands of restaurants. The mindset is also quite liberal (at least in the upper class) and you'll find some wild venues like no other in the country (strip clubs, luxury massage parlors, etc). Since most of the clubbers are expats or wealthy Indonesians, you'll need to dress up and to spend quite a lot to have fun. If you are looking forward meeting beautiful women , Jakarta is fantastic too. → Most recommended venues: Jenja , Immigrant , Dragonfly , X2 , Basque → Where to stay near the nightlife

Taiwan Nightlife: 15 Best Nightclubs in Taipei (2019)

By Thibaud (Jakarta100bars) →
Taipei nightlife is considered by many expats as one of the best in all Asia. It is a combination of the best things the region has to offer: Modern venues, reasonable prices, friendly people and approachable girls. The number of nightclubs is limited though. Many are only open 3 nights a week on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. Wednesdays are actually getting more and more quiet, even with lower entrance fees. There are surprisingly few Westerners in Taipei and as a result, you will get more attention from normal girls compared to  Singapore  or even  Bangkok  (not to the level of Jakarta though). Note: This review was last updated on January 8th, 2019.  Where to Party in Taipei + Hotels A particularity of Taipei's nightlife is that almost all the interesting bars and nightclubs are located in the central area,  near the Taipei 101 Tower . Two nearby complexes have several clubs, bars and restaurants:  ATT4FUN  and  NEO19 . ----> If you are lazy to read my who
