The nightlife in Hai Phong


VietNamNet Bridge – Hai Phong nightlife might not be as active as Hanoi – only a few hours away by car. But if you explore a bit, especially around the Minh Khai District, you’ll find all sorts of choices.

Bars, nightclubs, discos and karaoke joints are to be found while the live music scene here has become more and more common and quite active lately.

La Villa Blanche

La Villa Blanche is, as the name suggests, a vintage French-style mansion featuring a garden area with some small outlets selling a variety of food and drinks including the national obsession, bia hoi beer.

Don’t expect any fancy setup as it’s a casual operation with plastic chairs and ordinary tables but the place is very popular among locals and can get pretty busy from lunchtime onward. It stays open until late and food and drinks are not at all expensive here.

Opening Hours: All year round

Location: Tran Hung Dao Street

Maxim’s Café
