HappyGayTravel YouTube ChannelThailand Gay New YearThe Land of Smiles awaits on this exquisite Christmas and New Year gay holiday. Our festive foray begins in big gay Bangkok where we’ll wander the Grand Palace, devour the street food and indulge in the raucous revelry and nightlife of the Silom district. We’ll then explore the famous temples of Northern Thailand and luxuriate in our superb hotel. Christmas day will be an unforgettable affair spent at a world-renowned elephant sanctuary. From Chiang Mai we fly south to swim, snorkel and explore the tropical islands of Krabi with extra time built in to enjoy the pristine beaches. Finally, we’ll take a private transfer to the booming beaches on Phuket. It’s here we’ll ring in NYE with a festive dinner and gay street party. To wrap up this once-in-a-lifetime tour we’ll kayak through Phuket’s elaborate cave system before releasing our own krathong (biodegradable candle boats) into the sea.

It’s worth mentioning we host multiple other departures through The Land of Smiles that don’t conflict with the holidays. See our Thailand Temples & Beaches Gay Tour and Thailand Songkran Water Festival Gay Tour for alternative dates and prices.

To cap off the experience we’ll have tea and snacks from an observation deck while watching the elephants play in a mud pit below. This is one of our most popular activities and a magical way to celebrate the holiday (if you celebrate, that is!).

Trip Notes

Thailand Visa
A visa is not typically required for American, Australian, British and Canadian citizens travelling to Thailand for fewer than 30 days. There may be exceptions, and all visas are the responsibility of the traveller.

Culture Shock
Tourism in Thailand is well-developed enough to afford many of the luxuries of home, however in our experience the culture and craziness of Thailand can be a tad overwhelming at times. We recommend you relax, have a sense of humour and take it easy.

Local LGBT Scene
Most major cities in Thailand, such as Bangkok and Chiang Mai, have vibrant gay scenes with exciting nightlife and welcoming locals. While it is not yet viewed as socially acceptable for LGBT locals, tourists are welcomed with open arms.

Weather
Expect it to be hot and sticky at times. It can be pleasantly chilly in the evenings, and there is a chance of showers (although they are not common during our tours). We recommend travelling with a light sweater and jacket, but don’t leave your summer clothes at home: mid-day temperatures can climb well above 30°C/85°F.

Required Vaccinations
Based on the entry requirements for Thailand, there are no vaccinations needed for entry. To determine if you should take preventative measures to reduce the risk of illness, you should consult your doctor or a travel medical clinic, as we cannot provide vaccination recommendations.

Electricity
You will need an international travel plug/adapter for type A/B/C sockets.

Connectivity
All our hotels will have Wi-Fi access, so feel free to tweet, pin, post and share your experience with your friends and family at home. They might be a tad jealous!

Travel Insurance
For everybody’s peace of mind, medical travel insurance is required on all Out Adventures tours. At a minimum, your travel insurance must provide cover against personal accident, death, medical expenses, emergency repatriation and personal liability, with a minimum medical coverage of US $200,000.

Domestic Airfare
On this tour domestic airfare is not included. We will provide the recommended flight details in the official Trip Guarantee email. If you are booking your trip less than 90 days to departure, there is a chance you will have to purchase a different flight than the rest of the group.

Meals
To keep things flexible, not all meals are included in the trip price. Although we typically dine together so that everybody can get a taste of everything, feel free to explore on your own…your guide will always have some restaurant recommendations.

Money
The local currency is Thai Baht. We usually recommend carrying local currency for small purchases, however credit cards are accepted at most upscale restaurants, and at hotels. We recommend carrying approximately $400 USD to be used only in the case of an emergency, or if your credit/ATM cards are placed on hold.

Tipping
On this trip, tips for drivers, hotel staff and porters are covered in the tour cost. If you are happy with services throughout your trip, tipping your tour leader is recommended. Further tipping details will be provided in your final trip documentation, however we recommend budgeting approximately $50-$100 USD.

What to bring
Our adventures entail carrying your own luggage on occasion. And while you’ll never schlep far, things can quickly get costlier than a celebrity breakup if you don’t keep your baggage under 20kg/44lb thanks to costly surcharges on domestic flights. You should also bring something smaller for day trips to carry water, your camera, and any souvenirs you find along the way.

Optional Activities
Every Out Adventure offers optional excursions that are not included in price of this trip. Please see the daily itinerary in your final pre-trip packet to learn what’s available.

How We Travel
Out Adventures is all about good times with likeminded guys. Whatever’s on the itinerary – from fireside camping to five-star decadence – our goal is to make the experience magical. We’re also committed to supporting the communities we visit by hiring local guides, staying at locally-owned accommodations when possible, and celebrating local cuisine. It all adds up to a great way to immerse yourself in the culture.

Your Guide
All Out Adventures are led by a gay (or gay-welcoming) guide. Whenever possible, we hire destination locals. And we can also connect you with the right people if you’d like to delve deeper into the local culture. If you’re pleased with your guide, we recommend a tip of US $50-$100 per person… they’ll certainly appreciate it!

Flying Solo
If you’ve never travelled on your own, it’s an amazing way to get to know yourself while making new friends along the way. We can arrange for you to share a room with people in your age range at no charge, or you can pay a supplement for your own room. If there’s an odd number of solos, we’ll rotate a single room on a random basis.
