Thailand is a tropical country in southeast Asia, located southeast of Burma and bordering the Gulf of Thailand and Andaman Sea. Thailand is known for its delicious food, culture, temples, and beaches, which makes it a desirable vacation spot. In addition, Thai people are incredibly friendly and accepting, which appeals to gay travel, and it’s not uncommon it be bombarded with smiles everywhere you go. Because of the monsoon season, the most desirable time to visit Thailand is between November and February when the weather is drier. The national currency is the baht (as of 2009 exchange rates, approximately 34 baht = $1).
For instance, although the sight of two men walking the streets arm in arm may be completely acceptable and normal to the typical Thai person who views this as a simple friendship, a man and a woman holding hands as they walk is not so readily accepted. And though sexual acts are left to the discretion of the involved individuals behind closed doors, public displays of nudity are considered absolutely unacceptable–even wearing shorts and a tank top is questionable in some areas and establishments. Never should one touch anothers head, as the head is considered to be sacred. And one should make sure never to point ones feet in the direction of another human being, since this also is viewed as being taboo.

Chiangmai is the second largest city in Thailand, has a rich history, and contains more than 300 temples.

Like Bangkok, Chiangmai has a thriving gay population, and nightlife is diverse, with go-go bars, clubs, and cabaret.
Thailand, and its people are full of surprises. The phrase Mai pen rai, or its nothing/no worries/its cool tells all about the country and its inhabitants. Gay people are more than accepted by the general Thai population, making Thailand the ultimate choice for gay tours.
