World's Top Ten Cities for Nightlife

According to, Asia’s leading hotel booking site, following is a list of the top 10 cities that offer the best nightlife excitement, as chosen by its customers. And with New Year’s Eve quickly approaching, these cities are perfect for a quick getaway if nothing’s been planned yet.

Based on feedback from over 113,000 respondents provided at the end of their stay, customers had the opportunity to rate the nightlife on a scale of 1-5, 1 being “poor” and 5 being “excellent.” The top spot was taken by Bangkok, Thailand’s energetic capital known for its tuk-tuks, temples, and street food, followed by Dubai, the gleaming desert city in the United Arab Emirates, and Boracay/Caticlan in the Philippines, famous for its white sand beaches and swaying palm trees.
