Thailand Temples Gay Tour Itinerary

Day 1 - Arrival in Bangkok, Thailand
Bangkok Thailand gay travelWelcome to Bangkok, upon arrival a local guide will meet you at the airport and transfer us to our hotel.

Since most flights arrive in the evening, there are no scheduled activities on this day.

However, if you arrive early, we can arrange some pre-tour sightseeing if you wish.

 

Day 2 - Bangkok Temples
Bangkok gay travelAfter breakfast, we will make our way to the amazing Grand Palace, home of Thailand’s king. We will also visit the Temple of the Emerald Buddha and its jade Buddha statue. We will wrap up the afternoon with a visit to Wat Pho to see more of Thailand’s rich Buddhist heritage.

This afternoon we will explore the Klongs (canals) of Thonburi. Our first stop is at the impressive Wat Arun, named for the Indian goddess of dawn. We then follow narrow canals through neighborhoods where the canal serves as the main “road”. Next, we’ll visit Chinatown and sample some local delicacies.

Tonight we will enjoy a Welcome Dinner cruise in Bangkok. Enjoy the City of Angels’ cultural contrasts by night over the Chao Praya River. Take in the views of the Temple of Dawn, Royal Barges House, Grand Palace, and other splendid temples.

 

Day 3 - Damnoen Saduak – Kanchanaburi
Thailand gay tour - railway marketToday we will head south from Bangkok to the garden province of Samut Songkhram. We will spend time walking along the famous Maeklong Railway Market and immersing ourselves in the local culture. Then we will continue to Damnoen Saduak floating market and climb aboard a long-tail boat for a canal cruise. We will have the opportunity to view how the Thai people live, including observing farmers working in the salt fields.

In the afternoon, we will drive west to Kanchanaburi, site of the original “Bridge over the River Kwai”. We will pause to reflect at the Kanchanaburi War Cemetery and JEATH War Museum, a realistic depiction of prisoner of war living quarters, including detailed memorabilia dating from WWII. The name honors the Japanese, English, Australian, American, Thai and Holland soldiers who served in the strategic region that straddles the Thai and Burmese borders. The prisoners of war built the Thai-Burma Railway, often called the “Death Railway” because of the many lost lives during its building.

 

Day 4 - Erawan National Park – Saiyok
Thailand gay tour - Erawan National ParkThis morning we will enjoy a bamboo rafting adventure along the River Kwai. Then we will set off to visit the Hellfire Pass Memorial Museum, located where the railroad was cut into a cliff.

This afternoon we will enjoy the largest and most amazing waterfall in the region, Erawan Waterfall, located on the bank of the Kwai Yai River in Khao Salop National Park. Enjoy some peaceful, serene time here surrounded by countless species of plants and flowers.

We will have time to relax and enjoy our natural surroundings before heading to Saiyok for the rest of the afternoon.

 

Day 5 - Ayuthaya – UNESCO site

Later we will travel to Ayutthaya, Thailand’s former capital. It is known for the ruins from its prestigious past and is listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

This afternoon we will visit Wat Phra Si Sanphet, a royal sanctuary, and Wat Chaiwatthanaram, built by King PresatThong in 1630 with images such as Buddha preaching to his mother in heaven.

 

Day 6 - Wat Phananchoeng – Chao Phraya River
Thailand gay tour - AyutthayaThis morning we will see the diversity that made Ayutthaya a strong kingdom and major trading center. Our stops will include a Buddhist temple in the old Chinese quarter, the Japanese Village, and the Muslim Quarter where we can sample local cuisine such as candy floss roti. Surprisingly, there is also a Dutch Settlement, Baan Hollanda, from which trade with Europe was carried out.

For lunch, we will board a traditional teak rice barge and drift along the majestic Chao Phraya River, the River of Kings. Onboard we will enjoy a delicious selection of Thai food as we cruise around Ayutthaya and its old capital. This afternoon we will visit Bang Pa-In Summer Palace.

Day 7 - Bangkok / Chiang Rai
Thailand gay tour - boating riverAfter breakfast, we will drive to Bangkok airport and take our flight to Chiang Rai.

Upon arrival, we will meet up with our local guide to transfer to our long-tail boat for a cruise on the Mae Kok River. The ride is more about the journey than the destination – the spectacular mountain scenery and opportunity to visit hill-tribe villages along the way make this one of the most enjoyable river trips in Thailand.

 

Day 8 - Golden Triangle – Chiang Rai
Chiang Rai gay tour BuddhaThis morning, we depart to Santi Khiri, founded in 1960 on a lovely mountain. It was built by Chinese Kuomintang peasant-soldiers expelled from Burma, where they had gone after losing China to the Communists in 1949.

We will also visit ethnic villages and stroll through a bucolic tea plantation.

Next, we will climb onto an I Tan, a vehicle used to transport rice after harvest. We will visit a village of the Akha ethnic group. This village is under the King’s patronage for planting fruit trees and vegetables to replace the drug trade that used to be a major source of income here in the “Golden Triangle”.

After lunch, the rest of the day will be at leisure back at our Chiang Rai hotel.

 

Day 9 - Chiang Mai
Chiang Mai gay tourToday we will visit Chiang Rai’s amazing White Temple, a masterpiece of Thai architecture. It was founded in 2000 by renowned Thai artist Chalermchai Kositpipat and it is made of white concrete and several thousand small mirrors.

Afterward, we will drive to Chiang Mai and visit Wat Phra That Doi Suthep, one of the most important Chiang Mai’s landmarks where sacred Buddha relics are preserved in a golden stupa. The panoramic view of Chiang Mai is absolutely fantastic.

This evening, we will head to the cultural center for a Khantoke dinner! Enjoy the northern customs, consisting of several tasting dishes, while enjoying traditional music with dancers.

 

Day 10 - Elephant Nature Park
Thailand gay adventure tourAfter breakfast, we will head north to Mae Taman Elephant Camp. Here we will observe elephants in their daily life: working, training, and bathtime!

We will view enchanting plants, flowers, butterflies, birds, squirrels, reptiles, etc. Next, we will take a short walk to 500 Rat Lake where we will board a bamboo raft to cross the 500 Rai Lake to the Pakarang Cave (Coral Cave). The stalagmites here have a similar shape to coral which is how the cave came to be named. We will enjoy some time here exploring the cave.

Lunch will be at a floating restaurant today. Then this afternoon, we will start the boat ride back to our hotel and enjoy some time at leisure.

 

Day 13 - Khao Sok National Park – Phuket
Khao Sok National Park gay tourToday we will depart for Khao Sok National Park for around three hours of hiking. It will be another opportunity to view plenty of plants, flowers, butterflies, birds, squirrels, reptiles, and more.

Trip FAQ

Where does the tour start and end?
This tour starts in Bangkok (BKK) and ends in Phuket (HKT).

 

What is the Activity Level of This Tour?
Traveling in Thailand requires you are reasonably fit enough to enjoy the listed activities in the itinerary. This includes walking daily in temples, markets, museums, getting on and off boats, etc. You should be comfortable canoeing for a couple of hours, and be able to hike for an afternoon.

 

What will the hotels be like?
All hotels on this tour will be 4 stars or higher. With the exception of one hotel that is rated a 3, due to limited options in the area.

 

What if I am traveling alone?
Most of our trips draw more single travelers than couples. When couples do join us, it’s usually because they’re looking forward to interacting with a gay group; if they wanted a holiday by themselves, they wouldn’t have signed up to travel with us. Furthermore, the activities included with our trips serve as natural ice-breakers. Within a day, you’ll be traveling with friends. You don’t need to pay the single supplement if you’re traveling alone. We’ll be happy to match you with a roommate. Pay the single supplement only if you want a bedroom to yourself.
