Gay travellers have been flocking to Bangkok for many years. It’s a city of pleasure. Although Thailand is a socially conservative country, Bangkok is a liberal place – especially for foreigners. You can find just about anything in Bangkok if you look for it.

Bangkok’s street food is legendary. There are many historic temples to explore. It really is an unbeatable destination for a city break. Bangkok is a city you have to see at least once in a lifetime.
