Clubs & Bars

For the most part the Phu Quoc nightlife scene is relatively quiet compared to other tropical island destinations such as Phuket, Bali, or Boracay. This island caters to more of a mature crowd with a preference for families, groups, and couples – think Maldives or Fiji. With that being said, on Phu Quoc you will find a lot more upscale lounges — some of which are right on the beach, others located on the rooftop of a luxury resort, and even some on private islands. That's not to say that there aren’t any dance clubs on Phu Quoc Island, it’s just that the party options are very limited and the environment is more intimate.

However when Phu Quoc does decide on throwing a party, it goes all out – international DJ's, premium beach front locales, and beautiful people from all over the world. Every year Phu Quoc hosts a 2 week long international music festival – one of Asia’s epic beach event,a traditional that began in 2017.

 

Bars & Pubs

The bar scene on the island is quite exciting and diverse catering to all demographics — from backpackers to sommeliers.  The majority of them are located in Bai Truong & Duong Dong, the two most popular regions on the island.  If your time is limited and you are looking for a great place to have a drink and meet other people, then be sure to read our Phu Quoc Pub Crawl Guide, the definitive guide on where to drink and bar hop on Phu Quoc.

From beach bars to hole-in-the-wall types, everything can be had on Phu Quoc Island. Beer lovers should definitely check out some of the islands microbreweries and sample the freshest beer produced on this side of the planet. Cheers!
