Gay Day Tour

Join Connect's Gay Day Tour to Kai Island. This is the only Gay tour in SE-Asia on a schedule all year round every week since 1999. Going on this tour might create your best holiday memories ever! We are going every Saturday all year round.

Despite there are 17 beautiful beaches there are no real gay beach or nude beach here. Patong Beach has a "gay area" just in front of the beach rescue tower near to the tourist police and Immigration office. You will recognize most of the guys here from the Paradise Complex area.

Patong has 2 saunas in the gay area. Both of them have swimming pool, steam room, dry sauna, sun deck and gym. One has also dark-room and a Jacuzzi. You can get massage from a male masseur in both places. Popular late afternoon until early evening

"Thai style" gay venues
Pub/Bar with hosts available to "off". Be prepared to be sitting next to a host from the bar asking you to pay for a drink (to start with).

"Western style" gay venues
Hassle free gay venues. Friendly atmosphere without hustlers.

Dance bar/music pub
Music pubs with live music. No gay venues but several mixed in Patong and Phuket town.

There is one gay disco in Patong and 2 mixed. Phuket town has 3 mixed discos.

Cabaret-/transvestite show
There are several dedicated cabaret-/transvestite shows in Patong. Some go-go bars have cabaret shows.

Sex show
Sex shows are (under this present government) illegal in Thailand.

Great fun! The karaoke clubs listed here are very popular among gays and they have songs from all over the world. Pick you favorite and go for it!

After Beach
Most of the gay venues open at the night-time. Connect is however open from 9 in the morning and is popular both with locals and the tourists. You can check your Internet E-mail, have some light snacks and a beer and chat with your friends. Connect restaurant serve "all day" breakfast and have a extensive menu with Thai and western food.

For many westerners, massage is an infrequent indulgence. In Asia massage is used for all sorts of therapeutic need as well as for pure enjoyment. Only a few massage places have male masseurs.

The only cinema is in Phuket Town. The brand new Cinema multiplex shows movies with original soundtrack or dubbed to Thai. Check carefully so you do not choose the wrong one.

If you are in Patong just go to Paradise Complex or to the beach at late night. If you are really into cruising go to Phuket town and visit the Suan luang Park on Chao Fa rd. This park can compete with the best cruising places in the world. Very busy after 8 PM until 2 AM when the bars and disco close. Phuket town does not have any gay venue (only mixed) so this is the place to meet. Many locals go here. Some speak good English but not all.
Saphan Hin area is not recommended for cruising.
As always in parks - Be careful.
AYOR (at your own risk)

Patong has an uncountable number of restaurants. Patong has a few "gay restaurants" and several that are very popular among gays.

Night life in Patong
There is no gay scene outside Patong Beach and the gay scene in Patong has been rapidly transformed over a couple of decades from one bar only, to a vibrant modern gay scene. The anchor or nucleus of the gay scene is the popular Boat Bar Disco in Paradise Complex with a professional cabaret show and an outdoor terrace bar, located in an enclave of 30 gay venues in the "Paradise Complex".
You can get the latest updates and the Gay Patong Map from Connect Guesthouse, which is also the early evening meeting point. The Paradise Complex offers numerous pubs, a gay saunas, restaurants, pool bars, and Internet cafes.
The biggest cabaret show is the Simon Cabaret but it is perhaps more interesting for straight tourists who want to have a look at the katoys (transvestites).
One other show worth mentioning is the Phuket Fantasea Show ( It's a brand new mix of Thai culture, a Las Vegas Show and a pinch of Disney World all rolled into one.

New social order crusade

Since the recent beginning of the enforcement of the existing Thai laws and the Ministry of Interior's New Social Order Campaign we are changing the web site accordingly. We are not allowed to "advertise" prostitution venues.
This web site contains a listing of many Gay venues and venues of special interest to Gay visitors. Prostitution is illegal in Thailand and this web site does not promote prostitution.
This site can however not take any responsibility if any of the listed venues are involved in any form of illegal activities. Any parties that are concerned are welcome to give us feed back information to in any case of discrepancies to the Thai law and we will update the information immediately.
This web site promotes Gay tourism to Thailand NOT sex tourism. Thailand is one of the best countries in the world for Gay people to travel to. It's safe, the people are very friendly, the climate is fantastic, the beaches on Phuket are amazing. The Gay scene in Patong is more mature than just a couple of years ago and you can experience a wonderful hassle free holiday on Phuket Island. Welcome to Thailand, Phuket Island and Patong Beach.

Travel Tips
Packing Light: is the way to go: When travelling to shopping destination like Bangkok, you really don't need to pack a lot of clothes. You can find a lot of cheap, quality clothing there and can even have them tailor made in 2 days for a very low price.

Bringing Your Luggage on Board: If you're planning to take your luggage on board, try to book a seat near the rear of the plane. This will ensure that you will be one of the first to board the plane and you don't have to worry about finding an overhead space for your luggage.

Transformers and Converters: When travelling to a foreign country with a different electricity system you'll need a transformer or a converter. Thailand has a 220 Volt system

>>> Please note that not all venues on this page are entirely gay. We have listed some of these establishments because we know that they are popular among gays and that they might be of your interest when you visit Patong. <<<

More listings of gay venues in Patong are available on the following pages:


Southern Thailand is flanked by the Andaman Sea to the west and the Gulf of Thailand to the east and enjoys an abundance of beautiful beaches and gorgeous islands. Phuket Island is the pearl of Southern Thailand and is a must for every sun and sea-addicted gay or lesbian.
Patong Beach is the busiest beach with a gay night life you never expected to find anywhere. The Paradise Complex is the focal point of the gay scene offering everything from saunas and restaurants to a busy gay disco.
Phuket town do not have any specific gay bar. Many gay's go cruising in the Suan luang park, meet at the Monkey Zone or at the beer gardens, disco or music clubs.

If you are looking for solitude or a more secluded beach holiday you have a choice of 16 other beaches to relax on in Phuket, but don't expect much gay night life. There are also many nearby islands for overnight staying. These are easily booked at one of the travel shops on Phuket. The most famous beaches on Phuket Island are Patong. Kata and Karon are the most popular among package tourists (with children). Bang Tao Beach at the north end of the island is the resort area where you find most luxury resort hotels.
The ever-smiling Thai people are always friendly and are always willing to help. This might be a bit cumbersome in the beginning if you are visiting from a country where you never expect help or never talk to strangers without a purpose. The real culture shock will however not strike you until you are back home and you start to realize the difference. Believe me, you will soon start planning your return trip to Phuket.
