How can we inspire you today?

Please browse our enchanting LGBT friendly and gay welcoming destinations below.

Go Thai. Be Free.

Thailand welcomes the LGBT+ community.

In Thailand, we believe that diversity is amazing. As the most LGBTQ / LGBT+ welcoming country in Asia, we’re proud that the lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans community – and all people – no matter how they identify; and whom they love; feel free when traveling in Thailand on vacation or holiday. We have something for everyone. Yes, there are LGBT+ events, parties and nightlife, but beyond that, we offer rich culture, delicious food, unique local experiences, unparalleled luxury, spellbinding getaways and an experiential break of a lifetime, not to mention some fantastic gay friendly hotels and resorts. Come visit us and find out for yourself, but in the meantime, let us inspire you with stories that will make you want to go Thai; and be free.

Discover your Thailand

Thailand welcomes every color under the rainbow; and has something for everyone, whatever your interests. Whether you’re a fashionista or a foodie, or a street-fighter or sun-worshipper, a hedonist or history buff. Let us whet your appetite with some divine inspiration below.
