Gay Phuket is a combination of tropical sandy beaches and intense gay nightlife. Whatís not to love? Phuket is one of Thailandís largest cities and tourist spots as such it has one of the biggest and most active gay communities around. Patong is the largest town on Phuket and home to most of the nightlife both gay and straight. Phuket is Thailandís largest island, roughly the same size as Singapore, and itís linked to mainland Thailand by a bridge. The island is located on the west coast of Thailand in the Andaman Sea.
Thailand has some of the most stunning beaches in Southeast Asia. The island of Phuket has a huge array of options from the most visited beach of Patong to the secluded beaches like Mai Khao, Haad Sai Kaew, Banana, Freedom and Yae Beach. Visit Phi Phi Islands, Phang Nga Bay or Rang Yai Island to view shear wall cliffs that meet crystal clear waters flanked by some of the whitest sand beaches weíve ever seen.
The nightlife in Phuket is probably the most crazy and energetic in all of Thailand. Perhaps the only rival would be Bangkok that has an equally large and thriving gay scene. Youíll find all the gay venues located in Patong and grouped together in an area called Paradise Complex, which is comprised of several gay bars, clubs, saunas and other gay venues.
Patong is the largest town on Phuket and home to most of the nightlife both gay and straight. Most of the gay Phuket action takes place in or near to paradise complex. Thailandís gay-friendly reputation and Phuketís relaxing and equally desirable party atmosphere attracts gays from all parts of the world. Whether you come alone, with a significant other or with friends, youíre sure to run into other gays and you might even make a few new friends.

Located 47 kilometers northeast of Phuket, the spectacularly scenic Phang Nga Bay is dotted with over 100 islands and is one of the best sailing grounds in the world. The bay is bounded by Phuket island to the west, Phang Nga and Krabi provinces to the north and east.
The bay is famed for its limestone (karst) formations and cliffs that rise vertically up from the warm turquoise waters, the highest of which protrudes 350 m from the seabed. Many of these are fissured with caves which can be reached by sea kayak or dinghy. As well as many islands, the bay contains many inlets and channels waiting to be explored.
Phang Nga Bay also boasts a unique rock formation and the island of Koh Ping Kan, made famous in the James Bond film ďThe Man with the Golden Gun.Ē After visiting Koh Ping Kan, just a few minutes north is the Sea Gypsy village of Koh Pan Yi. This village is built almost entirely on stilts, over the water at the base of the towering limestone cliffs of Koh Pan Yi.
Sail back to Phuket.
Arrive back in Phuket and disembark at Ao Chalong Pier, Phuket.
Note: The type of beaches Captain Philip prefers to go to are beautiful, unpolluted, and unspoiled by tourists. He hopes you like the same.
