Gay Phuket

Phuket is an international destination attracting visitors from Asia, Australia, Europe and the United States. With 17 sandy beaches, access to the amazing Pha Na Bay with its dramatic rock formations, and numerous smaller islands.

And no wonder. From fantastic food, to world class water sports, from fabulous shopping to a vibrant night life, Phuket has something to offer every traveler. There are countless smaller boutique hotels and guesthouses – both stylish and inexpensive – as well as the usual array of the world’s top hotel chains.

Phuket Gay Scene

The Gay lifestyle on Phuket is centered in the tourist hub of Patong Bay where there are dozens of Gay venues – hotels, restaurants, nightclubs and shops. There is always something going on in the Gay hub near the Paradise Hotel, and any excuse for a party fits the Thai lifestyle. From the Gay Festival in April to the Vegetarian Festival in October – there are unique holidays and celebrations all year long.

The Gay traveler will feel right at home in Phuket. Legal in Thailand, gays are welcomed and respected. The prejudice found elsewhere in the world simply doesn't exist. Katoys – transgendered people - have long been a part of Thai life – respected and accepted by the general population. Whether you come with your partner or a group of friends, or even by yourself, you will find a wide variety of Thais who will welcome you with open arms.

Tips and Tricks

The weather is tropical with plenty of sunshine. Don’t bother bringing a lot of clothes with you – life on the Island is casual. Though the High Season – from late November to early April – when it is cold in the northern hemisphere and the temperatures range from the mid 80’s for highs to the mid 70’s at night – attracts the most people, Phuket is now a year round destination. The attitude is laid-back tropical fun. But whether you are an adventurer, sports enthusiast, sightseer or world class shopper or night time person - you will never be bored here. There is simply too much to see and do. Or you can do absolutely nothing at all.
