Siargao, Philippines

Siargao in the Philippines is a surfer town, which is the type of place that always attracts a great, interesting crowd of singles. Plenty of single guys travel here for the surf and sun, and after a day of hitting the waves, everyone will hang out at the relaxed bars and hostels in the area.

There are plenty of other activities to do here, even if you aren’t into surfing, and day trips are the perfect way to form a connection with solo female travelers.

In fact, the most popular tourist trap in Siargao is Cloud 9, which is well-known for its perfect surfing conditions. However, you don’t have to be a surfer to enjoy the boardwalk, amazing restaurants, and picturesque sunsets and sunrises that the location provides.

Mad Monkey, which is actually a 7-minute walk away from Cloud 9, is a great hostel choice here and is considered one of the best party chain hostels from Southeast Asia.

They regularly organize pool parties, beer pong championships, and some other drinking games. Perfect place to meet new girls and add a new page to your journal.

Singapore

One of the top recommendations for the best solo vacations for guys is also Singapore. This modern, flashy city appeals to young travelers in their late 20s and 30s and is the perfect vacation for a single man.

You’ll feel like you’re living the highlife by day, with the incredible architecture of the city. By night, immerse yourself in the city’s party scene, with a fantastic array of nightclubs and bars.

It’s certainly not the cheapest option on this list but will give you some of the most memorable nights of your time in Southeast Asia. Clarke Quay is my favorite area to party in, and I had a few wild nights out at the club Zouk there.

Time your night right and you might even get to see a world-famous DJ like Tiësto. Singapore doesn’t have as many party hostels, but it has some really friendly and sociable ones.

I only stayed 3 nights at the Bohemian Chic hostel but I had a fantastic time. I was lucky enough to find a nice group to hang out with from the first day I arrived here. If you looking for a place to stay in Singapore, check our guide.

Usually, I like staying and drinking in the hostel because I always find people to have fun with (and is also cheaper), but Singapore is way too good for a night out so you better go and enjoy the nightlife.

Due to its cultural diversity, Singapore is host to a wide selection of hawker-style vendors, each offering either Chinese, Indian, or Malay-style dishes.

If you love tasting new things, this gives you the chance to try different foods from the various cultures of Southeast Asia. If you are looking for good places to eat in Singapore, restaurant’s recommendation guide.

Kuta, Bali

If you are looking to enjoy Southeast Asia’s stunning beaches, head to Kuta in Bali. It’s a busy beach town that is known for its surfing and nightlife, which makes it another single men’s vacation paradise.

Try to find a sociable hostel here, where you can play drinking games such as beer pong or King’s Cup. This game is one of my favorites to play to start a night out, and in Kuta, I had some wild times during and after it!

As for the party hostels, I have 2 recommendations here.

If you are looking to stay in the center of the party scene, I’d recommend Cara Cara Inn.

If you don’t care where you stay because you prefer partying in a hostel instead of going for a night out, then go for Lay Day Surf Hostel.

What makes Kuta, Bali a good vacationing spot is that there are a lot of activities that cater to singles. This location attracts a lot of nomadic travelers who are on their own, so often times people are looking to pair up when they’ve had their fill of solo trekking.

Gili Trawangan

Another great spot in Indonesia is Gili Trawangan. If you are looking to scuba dive for the first time, Gili Trawangan offers many dive schools to get your open water certification.

But by nighttime, it’s a hotspot for backpackers who love to party. It’s the best of the three Gili Islands for partying and attracts a young, fun crowd. My favorite night out here was on Friday nights at Rudy’s, but I also loved The Irish Pub.

Gili Trawangan is a very well-known destination for revelers and there are multiple choices when it comes to party hostels.

My favorite party hostel here is Gili Castle. It has a swimming pool with a rock-climbing wall, and some amazing parties and events. If you are looking for one of the best solo vacations for guys, book ahead of time to stay here.

I personally didn’t stay in this hostel but I met some people who were staying there and I spent a few days there. It’s really cool and I like the parties and the vibe.

My second favorite party hostel, where I’ve stayed for a few nights in Gili Trawangan is Mad Monkey Hostel. This hostel is always packed with a lot of girls, ready to drink and party 24/7.

They have happy hours, daily tours, drinking games, pub crawls, and pretty much everything you need to enjoy yourself.

Another good option is My Mate’s Place. They sell super cheap drinks and are a good place to meet new people. In 2019, this hostel won the Best Hostel in Indonesia award, so it’s worth a try.

Something I also really liked about Gili Trawangan is that there’s hardly a place where you can be secluded because the island is always so packed and lively.

Most people are there to enjoy the beaches, clubs, and villas, which means if you do travel here alone, there’s a good chance it won’t stay that way.

Note. On this island, every accommodation provider offers rooms with a maximum of 3 beds in each room. You won’t find any hostel having more than 3 beds in one room.

Vang Vieng, Laos

Vang Vieng is a great spot in Laos to spend a few days and is a great vacation for a single guy. I’d recommend at least three days here, but more if you are looking to party and meet other people.

Vang Vieng is touted as being one of the biggest party towns in southeast Asia. Many people from all over the world come to engage in the activities that usually take place near the town’s shallow river.

However, aside from its party scene, the town also offers Korean restaurants and interestingly, a Mexican restaurant called Amigos, which is praised by many.

There are some fun daytime activities here, including tubing and kayaking. By night, the young backpacker crowd makes for a fun time for single guys.

Nana Backpacker Hostel is well known in Vang Vieng as a place to travel for single men and women. They have a swimming pool, a good restaurant, a bar, a pool table, and even a gym.

During my 6 days stay, this hostel was packed every day with young and open-minded travelers.

Siem Reap, Cambodia

Pub Street is the best area for nightlife in Cambodia, and it’s where you’ll want to spend most of your vacation when you’re not visiting the main sights. Siem Reap is one of the best vacation spots to get laid, with cheap bars and a fun crowd.

What makes Pub Street so much fun is that all sorts of local and foreign food joints line the strip. These joints include Korean and European-style dishes, along with imported drinks.

The bars and pubs are all within walking distance of each other. So, you’re bound to grab a friend or two during your bar-hopping session.

Angkor What? The bar is my favorite in the town, and every night it’s packed with visitors. I loved my stay at Mad Monkey Siem Reap.

I particularly enjoyed its rooftop beach bar, where I met some amazing girls and lads. The bar is open really late each night, and as the hostel fits so many guests, there’s always an ever-changing crowd.

Ho Chi Minh City

Ho Chi Minh City is the starting point for most visitors to Vietnam and is one of the best vacation spots for single guys in their 30s. The city has some fantastic attractions and history, but if you come at nighttime, it comes alive in a different way.

I visited here 2 times before and always met some amazing people to enjoy nights out with. If you’ve never tried a pub crawl before, this is the perfect place to do so, and I’d recommend the Pub Crawl Saigon.

If you don’t know what’s a pub crawl, is when you meet with a large group of travelers and spend the night hopping from bar to bar. It’s a great time for everyone involved, with plenty of drinks.

After traveling in Southeast Asia for years, I strongly believe that Ho Chi Minh is in the top #5 best vacation for a single man to get laid.

It also helps that Ho Chi Minh is home to some of the most stunning rooftop bars in the world, including the popular Chill Skybar. If you want to enjoy the nightlife from above, the Chill Skybar provides a beautiful and romantic panoramic view of the neon-lit city below.

From happy hour onwards, the bar livens up quite a bit, as the DJs start playing faster-paced music and all items become half-priced.

The Hideout Hostel Saigon is one of my top choices for a party hostel in the city. It has a bar and a terrace upstairs which is a great place to start any night out and meet girls who are staying there.

They do pub crawls every week, drinking games, happy hours, and usually is a very relaxed atmosphere. If you need to recover the next day, there’s a great chill-out room also.

Phi Phi, Thailand

Thailand is one of the best countries for a single guy to get laid. I’ve visited a lot of places and believe me when I say, Koh Phi Phi is probably the best party destination for single men.

Phi Phi Island is a hot spot for solo travelers who want to spend their summer vacation.

Specifically, Maya Bay, a beautiful white sand beach sporting massive limestone cliffs, is the main attraction of the island. The bay also has a bar with food, making it a great social area for anyone who’s alone.

I went with some friends from Phuket to this gorgeous island and I was not only impressed but amazed.

Every night is a party on the beach in Phi Phi. And I’m not talking about a party, but “the party”. Is one huge party on the whole beach, every night with several DJs playing live music.

Everything is so crazy, people are drunk and many times solo because is so easy to lose your friends. Overall, I had a great experience and I found it a really good place to meet women, including Thai women.

The downside is that the music stops at 1-2 a.m. and it kills the party. I never knew, why. Most of the people are going back to their accommodations but some people are remaining on the beach.

Doesn’t really matter in which hostel you staying in, they are all together. I’ve stayed in Blanco City, which is 3 minute walking to its brother, Blanco Beach Bar Hostel.

In the daytime is nothing crazy, people are going for island hopping or chilling on the beach.

Koh Phangan

I remember when Mark, a fellow traveler from the United States, asked me what are the best countries for single American guys to travel to. I instantly answered Thailand, among a few other countries.

Specifically, I’d recommend visiting Koh Phangan at the time of the Full Moon Party each month. This is a bucket list item for any trip to Thailand and attracts thousands of single men and women.

With parties every night leading up to the main event, it’s the perfect single guy’s vacation. One night before the Full Moon Party, don’t miss the Jungle Experience. This was one of my favorite nights of my time in Thailand, and it was a wild party deep in the Baan Tai jungle.

Learn everything about nightlife and parties in Koh Phangan

As a single guy, my social life is very welcoming and exciting. Something nice about the hostels, which seems to be really common on the island, is that a lot of activities are very inclusive. Excursions around the island can be arranged with anyone.

The Slumber Party hostel is one of the best party hostels in Thailand, with dorms and private rooms.

It has a great location and a social atmosphere. Every night (around Full Moon) they have DJs playing at their onsite bar. You won’t struggle to meet girls here, that’s for sure!

I remember coming very drunk in the morning after Full Moon Party and not less than 6 people had sex in the pool at 5-6 a.m. while some other people were drinking next to the pool, so no stress, student life. I like this life. But this is me 🙂

And by night..(excuse my ridiculous voice)

Bangkok

Bangkok, the capital city of Thailand, is the best place for single guys to visit in Southeast Asia. Most visitors to Southeast Asia start or end their trip in Bangkok, and for anyone looking for the best vacation for a single man to get laid, this is the place.

While Las Vegas is known as the most famous sin city in the world, I would say Bangkok is sitting on the 2nd position.

Thailand has always been known for its sex tourism, so if you are unlucky at the end of the night, you can always stop in a red-light district to have some fun.

There are three major red-light district hotspots in Bangkok. These locations are Patpong, Soi Cowboy, and Nana Plaza.

Now, these locations aren’t active until after 7pm, but trust that when the time arrives, these three spots provide unique experiences to each of their travelers.

Make sure you spend a few days here, so you get the chance to meet new people. Learn when is the best time to visit Bangkok.

Most backpackers and partiers stay on Khao San Road, which is the main hub for young travelers. With pubs, music, and great street food, you’ll find hundreds of singles partying here each night.

Bangkok is very well known for the Thai ladyboys so be careful who you go home with.

If you are looking for a club experience in Bangkok, I’d recommend Onyx, which holds up to 2000 people a night. For anyone looking for the best vacations for single guys to get laid, make sure you pay attention to where you are staying.

Party hostels offer you the best chance to drink and go out every night with new girls and are the easiest way to meet new people.

Another cool place to stay in Bangkok is the Mad Monkey Hostel, which is only a few minute’s walk to Khao San Road. This is a perfect place to meet new girls and have a drink together.
