For many years, the Philippines has been known as a first-class travel getaway in Asia. Its fascinating beaches, colorful events and festivals, and premier attractions make the country one of the most frequented tourist destinations in the region.
One way to make your visit to the Philippines memorable is to explore the country's night time offerings. Nightlife in the archipelago of 7,107 islands is truly a big bash, considering how fun-loving and good-natured the Filipinos are. Bars and clubs have been mushrooming everywhere, especially in urban and metropolitan areas. Even hotels and resorts are hosting various gatherings to cater to the needs of the growing number of party animals in the country. Even during weeknights or an ordinary working day, Filipinos are always finding ways to relax and unwind.
Here is a guide to the best places where you can enjoy, sing, and dance all night long.
Manila Manila is not only the capital of the Philippines but also the center of non-stop night time festivities.

A visit to gimmick areas along Roxas Blvd and Manila Bay is also recommended.
