Phu Quoc is a very relaxing place; it applies to its nightlife as well. There are bars on the beachfront, restaurants that serve well into the night and a couple of lively clubs for those who want to stay out longer. Phu Quoc attracts plenty of travellers on a Vietnam holiday and after night falls, it offers enough variety to satisfy everyone. The clientele in all these places will be a mixture of locals, Vietnamese tourists and overseas visitors.
The Dinh Cau Night Market certainly attracts the crowds; not only is the shopping great but there is street food as fresh as anything around. In many cases, Phu Quoc is the last destination on a Vietnam family vacation and so this is the time and the place to buy souvenirs and presents before flying home.
• The Ahoy Club is not particularly busy generally but with tourist numbers increasing year on year, its popularity is bound to increase.
• Beach Bar, Mango Bay Resort is quite an impressive place; swanky is a word that could certainly be applied to it. There is food available ranging from seafood to tapas and salads. You can sip a cocktail while looking over Ong Lang Beach until late each night.
• Bitter Sweet Bar in Salinda Resort is famous for its cocktails. The background music is not intrusive so it is easy to just relax and chat with family and friends. There is a restaurant elsewhere in the Resort so all you will get here are nuts or popcorn.
