If you are looking for a very long night of dancing to progressive house music, then head to Stadium. This club is huge even by international standards.

It features one of the largest dance floors in Asia.  This particular dance floor is just one of four in a massive building that has a 5000-person capacity.

Stadium attracts a mixed young crowd who don’t care whether you are gay or straight.  As with all large venues, take precautions with valuables or leave them in your hotel safe.
