Drink in Hong Kong..

Even in the wilds of Mongolia you'll find someone who is willing to throw back a few with you. Or in Muslim Indonesia, there is still Bali, where you can always find a party or two. Here are five of our favorite cities in Asia to dance the night away.
Seoul
As someone who has lived in Seoul, I may be a bit biased in favor of the South Korean capital but I have good reason. The nightlife there is always rocking and there are options for high-end boozing, winos, those who like to drink their soju while puffing on a hookah pipe and live music venues as well. Itaewon, a neighborhood known for its variety of restaurants, foreign food stores, and lively - if somewhat sleazy - nightlife, often draws large crowds of ex-pats and locals. If you're looking to be spoiled for choice, head to Hongdae, the university area, where there are hundreds of bars and clubs from which to choose.

Ho Chi Minh City
This Vietnamese city has developed a reputation for its crowds and craziness, and it is indeed a frenetic place. The nightlife scene here is certainly not exempted from that description, and there are plenty of watering holes where you can grab a cheap beer and swap travel stories with fellow ex-pats and backpackers. Nightlife establishments in Ho Chi Minh City run the gamut from holes-in-the-wall to proper clubs, so there is something for every taste and budget.
Bangkok
If you haven't been to Bangkok, you've surely heard stories of the legendary nightlife scene in the Thai city. Most of them are probably true, too, from the buckets filled with low-grade alcohol and Red Bull to the ping-pong shows where you'll see sexual feats you've never even imagined - and may wish you hadn't witnessed by the time the night is done. The bars at Nana Plaza are where you'll find the sex shows and some seriously seedy bars. If you're on the backpacker trail, head to Khao San Road, where the party never seems to end. Many of the trendier places are to be found beyond Nana on the sois off Sukhumvit Road. (READ MORE: Bangkok’s 5 coolest small bars)
Hong Kong
If you're tired of the backpacking scene and ready for a bit of an upgrade when it comes to entertainment, Hong Kong is your city. This exceptionally cosmopolitan metropolis has many a luxurious bar and club in which to sip a well-made cocktail in the company of native and foreign high-rollers.
Singapore
The Singapore nightlife scene is thriving, especially when it comes to the bumping club scene. Singapore's scene has attracted world-class DJs and musical acts such as David Guetta. However, Singapore is not a place to party on a budget. A beer alone will cost you the equivalent of a night at a middle-range guest house in Thailand, so plan accordingly because you won't want to be pinching pennies when you're out in Singapore.
