Important Travel Tip

Bangkok is a fabulous city, but traffic congestion varies from bad to appalling. The best way to get around Bangkok is by BTS Skytrain.  This elevated metro system is air-conditioned, cheap, fast and frequent. Typically, a train arrives every couple of minutes.

The  BTS Sala Daeng station in Silom is almost on top of the gay bars and clubs in Soi 2 and 4. From Sala Daeng it is just two stops to Siam, the central station, located in the heart of Bangkok’s shopping district. Virtually all our hotel recommendations are just a couple of minutes walk from a BTS station.

Why this hotel: Walk to Babylon. Very gay-friendly.

Bangkok’s original ‘gay-friendly’ hotel in continues to attract gay travellers on a budget.  The Malaysia offers affordable rooms and the warmest of welcomes.  This is a ‘no frills’ hotel that some might say is showing its age, but the rooms are clean and comfortable.  Free WiFi in public areas with a small extra charge for use in room.
