The following is a ranking of the most happening nightclubs in Jakarta. If you are a newcomer to the city, I recommend you to go to the Fairgrounds complex first.

How to Unblock Netflix in Indonesia: If you don't have the time to read the whole article, know that you can simply unblock Netflix in Indonesia using a VPN like  VyrprVPN  (US$2.50/month). Once the VPN is installed, you must select a US server (New York, Los Angeles, etc), and connect to it through the IKEv2 256-bit encryption protocol. Confused? Don't worry, I explain everything below: Netflix is not blocked by the Indonesian government, but it is blocked by Telkom (IndiHome), a government-owned company and one of the largest Internet Service Providers (ISP) in the country. The reason behind the blocking is simply that they have shares in Netflix's Asian competitor, iFlix and therefore they want to force you to subscribe to their own service. If you haven't chosen your internet service provider yet, try to avoid Telkom, and choose instead a company like First Media, Indosat or Biznet.

By Jakarta100bars →
As the most liberal state in an otherwise conservative country, Goa is easily the best party destination in India. Relatively small in size (Goa is only slightly larger than Hong-Kong or Luxembourg), it attracts millions of tourists every year with its beautiful beaches, a relaxed vibe, cheap booze and tons of crazy parties. There are also thousands of long term residents, including hippies who have been living there since the 1970s. The following review will give you an overview of Goa nightlife. If you have any questions, please ask them in the comment section below.

Note: This Hong Kong nightlife review was written by a reader who has lived over 7 years in the city. One of the richest cities in the world, Hong Kong hosts a crowded 7 million people. Among them, you will find a diverse party-loving crowd of businessmen, expats (and their grown-up kids), students, and a fair number of tourists. This makes for an extremely dynamic, sophisticated and intense nightlife that I consider to be one of the best in Asia. I wrote this detailed review of Hong Kong nightlife to make sure you'll have a great time partying in the city. If you have any questions or comments, please leave them at the end of the article and I'll do my best to answer you!
