Advisory: Thailand is a welcoming place for gays, lesbians and transgenders who respect Thai laws and customs. Homosexuality in Thailand is largely a non-issue. Gay and lesbian visitors are very welcome and homosexuals are surprisingly integrated and into the big Thai family. Thailand has three annual gay pride events in Bangkok, Pattaya, and Phuket.

Persons convicted of sex with a minor face immediate arrest and harsh penalties including life imprisonment. Persons who have sex with a prostitute below the age of 18 face arrest, fine and imprisonment. You must be 20 years of age to enter a night club. Recreational drug use is illegal and surprise drug testing may take place at popular night spots. Nudity, at beaches or in saunas, is against Thai custom.

We follow the lead of the Tourism Authority of Thailand to promote a positive image of Thailand for tourists who happen to be homosexual. We stand united against the exploitation of women and children.

General Information

    Welcome to a country where it's no big deal who you fancy, but a very big deal how you behave.

    With highly visible ladyboys and tomboys everywhere you look, Thailand, not Disneyland, seems to be the happiest place on Earth for gays. Yet Thai GLBT face the same challenges to gain respect and understanding as everywhere else in the world. Still, Thailand manages to integrate gays into its everyday life, and allows many homosexual citizens to reach the very top of the socio-political ladder.

    The outside world has always been overly fascinated by the laissez faire commercial aspects of Thailand’s wide-ranging entertainment industry. While there are undoubtebly more prostitutes in the United States or in China than there are here, Thailand has gained an unfair reputation because of its pragmatic and tolerant view of human behavior. Asia, in general, has traditionally taken the common sense view not to dwell too seriously on sexual tastes, whereas historically recent complexes about homosexuality are largely based on notions imported from prissy colonials and religious fundamentalists.

    Two decades ago, Thai gays had little choice for social venues beyond the commercial lounges and gogo bars. In the last 10 years, however, the commercial scene has plateaued while a new generation of gay entrepreneurs has launched boutiques, hotels, restaurants, karaoke clubs, pubs and spas that cater to Thai gays and lesbians who want to socialize on a friendship basis. These types of venues continue to grow in variety and popularity and contribute to a more positive lifestyle for young GLBT.

    In 1994 we launched Utopia as Southeast Asia’s first gay and lesbian center in Bangkok, the first shop in the region to sell books and gifts specifically for gays and lesbians. These days you can buy GLBT books in most bookstores around the Kingdom and there are plenty of niche businesses looking for the pink baht.

    GLBT issues have been brought to the attention of the press and public by the brave efforts of Anjaree, Thailand's first lesbian organization, founded in 1986. The hard work to improve social conditions as well as combat AIDS continued with groups like Rainbow Sky, Lesla, and Bangkok Rainbow.

    Thai lesbians prefer to call themselves tom (for tomboy) or dee (for lady), as the term "lesbian", in Thailand, suggests pornographic videos produced for straight men. Tom and dee, by contrast, are reasonably accepted and integrated categories for Thai women, roughly corresponding to the western terms butch and femme.

    The question we are most often asked is "where do the Thai women who like women go to socialize?" The answer, as frustrating as it may be for visitors, is -- anywhere they want to. Toms are quite obvious to dees in a crowd and so toms will go to whatever pubs and nightclubs are popular at the moment. You can see tables of tom-dee couples almost anywhere.

    Lesbian activities are loosely organized around groups of friends. Women tend to move and socialize in groups here. It may be awkward at first, but once you've introduced yourself to a group, they will tend to sweep you up into their activities. Foreign women may find that language and their own ambiguous gender style (not femme enough to attract toms, and not butch enough to attract dees) to be challenging hurdles.

    BANGKOK



    Cha-Am and Hua Hin -- area code +66-32

    General Information

      The seaside resorts of Cha-Am and Hua Hin are popular getaways for Bangkok residents who want a very quiet, Thai-style weekend away from the city. Located on the sunrise side of the Gulf of Siam, this is also where generations of Thai royals have built their vacation retreats. Marukkhathayawan Palace, built between the two cities, is a beautiful Victorian gingerbread palace built by King Rama VI and now open to the public. It is, in fact, a traditional Thai "village" raised high on stilts, open to the sea breeze and with its various "compounds" connected by covered teak walkways. It was rescued from ruin, restored, and now stands as one of Thailand's architectural gems.

      Nightlife in Hua Hin, including the gay scene, is very quiet (out of respect for its neighbors), with seafood dinners at the wharf and the busy little night market being the main attractions. Hua Hin is therefore a perfect get-away for couples who want a little peace and privacy.

      The population of Cha-Am and Hua Hun is over 100,000 (that's about 4,000 Utopians).

    General Information

      Hat Yai is a busy economic hub of Southern Thailand. It serves as a R&R holiday spot for many Malaysians who head north for the city’s less-conservative nightlife and shopping opportunities. Transgender performers are visible at straight places, but the little bit of local gay life is fairly hidden from view.

      It’s short drive from here to the beaches of neighboring Songklaa province.

      The population of Hat Yai is about 200,000 (that's about 8,000 Utopians).

    Koh Chang (Trat)

    General Information

      Located in Trat Province, near the border of Cambodia, Koh Chang is Thailand's second largest island after Phuket. Still relatively undeveloped due to its pristine interior of tropical jungle and aquatic environment designated as a National Marine Park, Koh Chang and the dozens of picturesque islands ringing it have now been discovered by tourists and tourism developers. You can still find cheap little bungalows right on the beaches here and its close proximity to Pattaya (2.5 hours by car) and Bangkok (4.5 hours) means its popularity will continue to grow.

      White Sand Beach (Had Sai Khao) has the most foreign tourists, while Kai Bae Beach and Bang Bao are more popular with local Thai. Most of the island's gay-friendly venues are located in Kai Bae. You may want to drive onto the island, via the 30-minute ferry at Laem Gnop, so that you can explore the various beaches, waterfalls, and rural communities.

        Comments from Utopians:

        "Koh Chang is lovely. Some beaches are more active (like Samui with bars and restaurants along beach), other beaches are much more quiet and provide a relaxing escape. Certainly seems like a BYO BF island. No obvious ways/venues to meet guys here. Certainly a lovely place for romance." -- Phil (Sydney), Apr 3, 2016

    Bars and Clubs

      Most of the gay-friendly venues are located in Kai Bae beach. The scene here is unlike elsewhere in Thailand: it's happily non-commercial, relaxed, and unpretentious. Wind down and get into the tropical groove.

      NOTE: Many of Koh Chang's little bars and hang-outs go to sleep during Low Season (Mar-Oct), and, as a result, the clubs mentioned below may or may not be active, or even open, if you visit during those months. We hear reports of closures, but it's hard to know whether those are permanent or simply seasonal...

          Comments from Utopians:

          "Lemon Bar at Lonely Beach is no longer; visited last month and was told by a neighbour bar that it closed down." -- Phil (Sydney), Apr 3, 2016


    Restaurants and Cafes

      • Bangbao Fishing Village (seafood)

          This fishing village built on stilts is located on the southwest end of the island. Come here in the early evenings for the fresh catch of the day. Many restaurants to try, including Ruan Thai Restaurant, 089-833-5117, which serves fantastic garlic fried scallops and crab omelet with spicy/bitter vegetable leaves.

          Fantastic food and warm, personal attention from owners Chris and his lovely wife, Khun Oh. Lie back on pillows with a fruit shake or tropical cocktail and watch the fishing boats bob on the waves at this quiet beach. Try the crab or potato cakes. Try them again. Bonus: they've got the most enchanting restrooms north of Bali.

    Koh Phangan (Surat Thani)

    General Information

      Koh Phangan (pronounced gaw-pah-ngahn) is located north of Koh Samui in the Gulf of Thailand with easy connections from Koh Samui International Airport or a 30-minute fast ferry. It is best known for the monthly Full Moon Party held on Haad Rin Beach, attracting thousands of partygoers from all over the world since the mid-80s. But Koh Phangan is much more than its parties. It is a truly unique destination, combining an active ecological approach due to its well-protected flora and fauna, as well as attracting a growing number of eco-conscious gays who also enjoy a night out.

      The island boasts a stunning wealth of natural beauty - most of it is a National Park preserve offering challenging hikes with incredible views. Triathlons and mountain bike races are regular occurances. The diving around Koh Phangan is stunning, with easy access to beautiful coral reefs.

      The community of Koh Phangan is famous for its "R"espect motto. Visitors will quickly relate to this very special ambience found in nature, the parties, and through its people. The locals on this open minded, good-vibes-island of Thailand are eager to protect and sustain its well balanced ecology. Koh Phangan has become a prime green and ecological destination with well preserved landscapes and many eco-businesses and projects.

      The island has a much smaller gay scene than Phuket and Samui, but it is just right for those looking for something a little more quiet (except, of course, during the full moon). Haad Rin, where the parties take place, is a very popular beach. Good gay cruising spots are at the extreme ends of the beach, where it's more quiet. Most of the guys there are younger Europeans and Australians, with a good amount of Thai mixed in. There are gay operated bars and BnBs, as well as gay eco-resorts. Social media offers some connections for fun and hanging-out. Gay are welcome and appreciated everywhere.

      If you are looking for a way to combine a good time with an ecological tropical paradise, Koh Phangan is well worth a visit!

    Krabi -- area code +66-75

    General Information

      Once the favorite get-away for in-the-know Thai vacationers, Krabi’s new airport has signaled international awareness of this picture postcard paradise of fairytale islands, spectacular sea caves, isolated inlets, monkey-filled jungles, eco-protected mangrove deltas burgeoning with wildlife, floating Sea Gypsy villages, and an influx of well-designed 5-star boutique hotels that (mostly) blend into the scenery.

      Quiet Ao Nang Beach has the only stretch of shops and restaurants, but it’s decades behind the over-development of resort areas like Phuket or Pattaya. Most tourists want to stay out on the peninsula in the chock-a-block bungalows between Railei Beach and Ao Nang Beach (now accessible only by sea or the small public pathway that skirts the “private” Rayavadee hotel. Note the small fisherman’s shrine tucked into a limestone cliff on Ao Nang Beach – it's stuffed with an exotic variety of balad kik phallic offerings.

      The population of Krabi is about 25,000 (that's about 1,000 Utopians).

Laos is just across the river by bridge and there are national parks, fascinating temples, and unspoiled nature in abundance. The area hosts several seasonal festivities, the most famous being Bahng Fai Paya Nag, the mysterious emanation of glowing "Naga rockets", unexplained colored lights which shoot from the Mekong River at full moon during Pansaa, (Buddhist Lent) in October.

    Attractions


      • Wat Kaeg
          Nongkhai. Surreal folk-art garden of sculpted mythical and spiritual figures, some 5 stories high! The garden was originally begun in Laos, but the war forced the creator to abandon his works and relocate to Thailand where he started over again, completing close to 100 sculptures during his life. The remains of the original garden, much overgrown, still exist on the opposite side of the river and should not be missed if you plan to visit Laos.
