Exotic, lavish & gay-friendly: Koh Samui is everything that a gay man would hoped for. It is one of the most distinguished gay destinations in Thailand, particularly popular for its laid-out character and friendly locals. Koh Samui is not about partying or crazy dancing nights, Koh Samui is more about lying on a beach with your favorite cocktail on-hand, watching over the turquoise-water coasts.
We recommend Koh Samui for both romantic and fun trips. Its exotic character makes it an on-earth paradise for the ones searching for an alternative and more “down to earth” holiday experience. While its peacefulness and privacy make it one of the best islands in the world to spend your romantic holidays or gay honeymoon. The best time to visit Koh Samui is from Late December to April, when the weather is great, the rain is limited and there is lots of sun. The best time for outdoor activities like snorkeling and scuba diving is from March to May. The low season of the island is from April to June!
Koh Samui features a compact but vibrant gay scene with all kinds of gay venues including gay bars, gay dance clubs, gay massage spots, and gay beaches. The majority of the gay bars of Koh Samui are located in Chaweng Beach area, near the Boxing Stadium. The most popular gay bars around the island are the Poolside Bar of ALPHA Gay Resort, Pride Bar Samui, Samui Mojito Lab, K-Club Bar, Bar Solo, ARK Bar and The Road Less Travelled.
The gay cruising scene of Koh Samui is based on the gay saunas and some outdoor gay cruising hotspots, which we do not recommend. The most popular gay saunas in Koh Samui are Samui Men's Spa, Emerald Green Mens Club, and Prince Samui Men's Club. A satisfying experience in Ko Samui can only be achieved by exploring all the amazing places the destination offers.
Do not forget to visit the gay-friendly Chaweng Beach
as it is a sight to remember. A long shore covered with white sand and packed with beachfront bars and restaurants for the travellers to savour. If Koh Samui is your dream destination then you should check out our amazing Hotel Collections
