General Information

Chiang Mai rainbow city

    Chiang Mai is many people's favorite city in Thailand. Ancient, lush, and generally cooler than the rest of the country, it has seen the rise and fall of mighty and influential civilizations. Within the moat-bound Old City, you can still escape down cobbled lanes and wander through quiet temple courtyards, past old teakwood houses, and into bustling markets offering goods from the Golden Triangle. The Ping River is the lifeblood of a city whose charming rural atmosphere stubbornly clings on despite misguided stabs at development in the last decade. Chiang Mai is Thailand's laid back alternative to Bangkok's big city hustle.

    The population is over 1.2 million (that's about 50,000 Utopians). Chiang Mai has a relaxed bit of gay nightlife, mostly commercial in nature, with casual spots for locals and visitors to meet and socialize.

    Navigating the local gay scene is easy with our interactive Utopia Map of Gay & Lesbian Chiang Mai:
