worldwide club guide: phnom penh

nightlife in phnom penh

And you’ll get all of the above in Cambodia’s capital but if you like late night parties and tunes that get your booty shaking you may have a surprising amount of fun in this seductive city.

worldwide club guide: full moon parties

full moon party

One of the biggest NYE parties this 09/10 took place on a tiny Thai island called Koh Pha Ngan. The year changed on the very night there was a full moon – and if you know clubbing at all, you know that Koh Pha Ngan is famous for its wild full moon parties – so this was a truly cosmic coincidence. Over 50,000 locals and travelers converged on the beautiful Haad Rin beach to dance in moonlight and welcome the first dawn of 2010.

worldwide club guide: jakarta

nightlife in jakarta

Jakarta is not famous for its nightlife like some other Asian capitals, which was why I was very pleasantly surprised to find a smorgasbord of club options. Despite being a Muslim country, the alcohol flows freely and clubs are open until late, so I’m officially declaring Jakarta Asia’s undiscovered party city – get in quick before the secret’s out!

Bali is Indonesia’s party island and the night life generally starts late, meaning around midnight, and continues on until dawn in some venues. Most of the after-dark action occurs in the Kuta, Legian and Seminyak areas and while most of the party-goers are tourists there are music, clubs and bars to suit all tastes.

Vancouver is my favorite Canadian city as not only is it beautiful, but it’s a town that knows how to party. The action is only going to get more frenetic with the upcoming 2010 Winter Olympic Games. It may get chilly outside, but the nightlife scene packs some heat.

worldwide club guide: perth

nightlife in perth

Perth, the capital of Western Australia, is the most isolated big city in the world but it’s increasingly accessible thanks to cheap flights from Asia. It’s a hard-drinking, hard-partying town and Sunday afternoon - known locally as ‘Sunday Sessions’ - is a particularly popular time to get your drink on. Of course, dedicated clubbers use Sunday Sessions as a recovery from the night before and a warm up for the night to come…
