BAnGKOK
is the gay capital of Asia.

There’s a lot to love about bold and beautiful Bangkok – and for first-timers, it can all seem a little overwhelming. But look past its epic nightlife – complete with go-go boys in fish tanks and nightly drag shows – and there is a quiet, spiritual side to this city that offers some of the world’s most intricate temples and Buddha sculptures.

Then there’s the food – fresh, spicy, and absolutely delicious. Go local at the markets or dine at some of the most innovative restaurants you’ll find in Asia. People in Bangkok, like most of Thailand, are socially conservative but they are mostly friendly and open-minded towards the LGBT community – thanks in part to the country’s culture of tolerance and visible transgender population.
