While Phuket may appear a little “touristy” to some, the Island truly offers something for everyone, you just need to know where to look, and where to visit. Stay in the heart of Patong if you want to be close to the clubs, or just a short taxi ride away for those seeking the resort escape!
Phuket, the largest island in Thailand is a gay paradise. Located in the Andaman Sea, Phuket has some stunning sandy beaches along the west coast. Patong, Kata and Karon are some of the best known and popular with gay visitors from around the world. Those seeking something a little calmer should head to the nort or south of Patong for a tryly idyllic escape.
The gay scene is located in the west coast town of Patong with more than a dozen gay bars and clubs located in the Paradise complex. Patong beach has a well established gay zone right by La Flora Hotel, easy walking distance from the bars.
Phuket is the perfect beach destination with a wide range of natural and cultural attractions from the stunning islands of Phi Phi and Phang Nga Bay to the historic temples and of course the “Big Buddha”.
Peak season (and driest) is from early December until mid-April after Songkran, the Thai new year celebrations.
