Closing its fifteenth year with a bang, Asian Poker Tour’s final series for 2023 is fast approaching with four weeks left on the calendar before the festivities kick off. The APT Hanoi Billions slated for this December 1-10 at the National Convention Center in Hanoi, Vietnam, boasts its grandest offering of VN₫ 60,000,000,000 (~US$ 2.5 Million) in prize guarantees. A sure fire way to capture everyone’s attention, the anticipated series is also headlined by a VN₫ 25,000,000,000 (~US$ 1 Million) Main Event, backed by Asia’s most extensive schedule to date with a total of 96 events across the ten-day festival.

While the games itself are worth the journey, catching a flight a few days earlier or later might be ideal for those looking to do a little more besides poker. APT’s third return to Hanoi this year alone signifies its humongous success in the capital and has prepared the lowdown for all its interested runners via the official APT website.

Those geared for some nightlife besides the APT Players Party on December 7th, can venture out on Hanoi’s bustling streets lined with local bars, live entertainment and late night eats. Bringing in a multitude of options to choose from, travelers and locals alike can be ensured of not only a great time on the tables but also away from the cards.
