Face it. We’d all like to be in Ibiza right now. Or even Bali. But we’re not. So, a high-speed shuttle boat across to Swanbay on December 10, where there awaits inflatable flamingos, a roster of girl-power local DJs – including Yokosun, Levyn and Xiu Xiu – and a gang of usually dapper (but probably shirtless) bartenders, in the first installment of Splash Tropical Pool Party.

Sun-Basking And Rosé Toasting
And it’s all reached by high-speed boat from District 1’s Bach Dang Ferry Terminal in a 30-minutes ride full of sun-basking, and rosé toasting. And once there, the organizers promise a special surprise – legendary rocker Pham Anh Khoa will perform a special set as the sun sets.
Making A Splash
“And all this will set the stage for a full season of trendy, tropical pool parties over on Swanbay Island,” the organizers explain. “We’re bringing together international-standard event production, and global and local headline artists, all for the aspirational day dreamer and lifestyle seeker in you…”
