Gay Places

Thailand Is A Highly Tolerant Country Where Sexual Preference Is Regarded As A Personal Choice When It Comes To Homosexuality. Gays, Lesbians And Transsexuals Are All Accepted As Part Of The Thai Way, Inspired By The Teachings Of Buddhism. Gay Harassment Is Virtually Non-existent.

Thai People - Both Gay And Straight - Are Also Known For Their Sweet, Friendly And Polite Natures. All Of This Have Contributed To Making Thailand A Prime Gay Tourist Destination, With Bangkok Often Being Dubbed As The Gay Capital Of Asia.

To Celebrate This Diversity And Freedom, Gay Pride Events Are Held Annually In The Three Major Tourist Destinations: Bangkok, Pattaya And Phuket. The First Bangkok Gay Festival Was Organized In The Silom And Surawong Area In 1999.

The Inaugural Event Was The First Of Its Kind In Southeast Asia, With Participants Dressed In Extravagant, Over-the-top And Flamboyant Costumes, Cheered On By Thousands Of Spectators. The Lavish Parade And Decorated Floats Attracted Both Local And International Crowds. Definitely A Feast For The Eyes, Bangkok Gay Pride Usually Takes Place In Late October Or Early November In The Silom Area. Make Sure You're Close To The Action; Staying In Hotels Around The Silom Area Will Guarantee You A Front Seat!

Bangkok Gay Nightlife Is As Fun, Exciting And Wild As The Straight Scene (if Not More). Wide-ranging Gay Venues In Bangkok Offer Everything From Gay-friendly Hotels And Guest Houses To Pubs, Clubs, Bars, Karaoke Venues, Ladyboy Cabarets, Go-go Bars, Massage Parlors And Saunas.
