Saigon’s manic energy by day gives hints at the city’s energy levels after the sun goes down. The streets may quieten down a little but Saigon keeps charging along till the early hours. There’s plenty to do after dinner whether you’re looking for a quiet drink in a cool space, some live music, a dance, some serious clubbing or an all night bender.
One of the best things about a night out in Saigon is that most venues are very close by so moving between them is easy. You can try lots of places.
If you end up in the backpacker district (around Pham Ngu Lao St), where Saigon's all-night party establishments are located, be warned of seediness as well as the prevalence of petty crime. There have also been reports of some nasty bar fights. Stay out of trouble.
