June is arriving soon, however, compared to previous months, there seems to be a lot less events in Southeast Asia this time around, and we believe that this has something to do with it being the month of Ramadan.
As Southeast Asia consists of several Muslim majority countries like Malaysia, Brunei and Indonesia, it is naturally expected for the region to have lesser (nightlife) events this month as a sign of respect to the Muslim folks.
But nevertheless, there are still tons of fun concerts and festivals going on for the non-Muslims to enjoy and participate, and they are quite huge!
