The incredible history, architecture, and landscape of this ethereal place surely appeals to gay travelers; and, thankfully, Thailand is about as gay friendly as a place can be. Known for its diverse ideals about gender and identity, we're sure you've heard some interesting things about this southeast Asian nation. It's well known that Thailand has the world's highest percentage of transsexuals. In fact, gangs of roving "ladyboys" have been known to rob and mug tourists, so be aware of your surroundings. There are also large gay pride celebrations and plenty of clubs and bars around metropolitan areas such as Bangkok, Phuket, and Pattaya.
Be sure to enjoy the landscape too though! Thai beaches are routinely ranked as some of the most spectacular in the world, and the famous limestone formations over turquoise bays are the stuff of desktop-background legend! Thailand truly has a little something for everyone.
