Thailand Gay Life | The Asian Must-Visit Destination!

Contrary to many other Asian countries, Gay Thailand has become a "thing" the past few years, and the local gay community is currently thriving. Homosexuality has been legalized since 1956, and Thai community has become very familiar with the gay lifestyle, especially the past few years. Of course, the full integration of homosexuality into the Thai Society in the 21st century is an undeniable fact.

Since the gay Thai community is 'out of the closet', the gay scene of the country is currently thriving, especially in the most popular destinations, like BangkokPhuketChiang MaiPattaya, and Koh Samui. Of course, Gay Thailand offers more than these destinations. There are countless towns and areas in Thailand where you can enjoy a romantic gay adventure, or simply relax and enjoy the Asian nature!
