The more laid-back island of Samed is the closest ‘beach holiday’ island to Bangkok. Samed’s white sandy beaches attract gay tourists and gay Thais from Bangkok. The island offers both sun and fun nights out at the gay/mixed Silversand Bar.
Finally, we have the ‘away from it all’ island destinations.
These islands are harder to reach but offer some of the best tropical beaches in Thailand. The islands are ideal for romantic couples and those who only need a good book. You will probably meet other gay travellers, don’t expect to find any gay venues.
