From vibrant nightlife and authentic cuisine in Bangkok to the temples and serenity of Chiang Mai, Northern Thailand will surely captivate you. Experience the Land of Smiles with OUT Adventures and take home not only countless amazing memories, but great new friends as well.
This place has the full package! All that, AND a bag of chips. Or perhaps a plate of the tastiest Pad Thai you've ever tasted. Bangkok seems to be buzzing 24 hours a day, while in Chiang Mai you can easily slip down a side road and end up in a peaceful temple with chanting monks. Thailand has endless street markets, stunning gay-welcoming boutique hotels, white-sand beaches that go for miles and dense jungles full of adventure.
Thailand is by far the most liberal Asian nation when it comes to LGBT rights. Although same-sex marriage is not legal, there are many gay communities in larger cities throughout the country, and nearly every urban centre has multiple gay bars and gay-welcoming establishments.
The best time to visit Thailand is between November and March because it isn't too hot and there is the least rain. There are also many festivals in the country during this period, which are always fun to participate in!
