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 next to the beach and some perched on top of a hill. That’s not to say that there aren’t any dance clubs on Phu Quoc, 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 music festival attracting a large international crowd – one of Asia’s largest musical festival and a traditional that began in 2017.
The bar scene on the island is quite exciting and diverse catering to all demographics – from backpackers to sommelier.
