Gay culture vacations

Nothing expands your cultural horizons quite like travel. From cuisine and customs to arts and architecture, the best way to really get to know a destination is to immerse yourself in its cultural life. Our gay culture holidays let you explore global locations far and wide, giving you an immediate opportunity to truly enrich your world.

Our attention to detail, exceptional service and deep understanding of both luxury travel and LGBTQ+ travel make us a fantastic choice for those looking for a travel experience where exclusivity meets inclusivity.

We recommend

At Out Of Office, we specialise in crafting gay culture holidays that offer more than just a journey – they provide an experience deeply rooted in the unique essence of each destination. Our approach goes beyond the typical tourist trails, immersing you in the heart of the local culture. Imagine strolling through the world's most renowned museums, where history and art come alive, or exploring those hidden archaeological gems that are steeped in ancient mysteries. We take pride in guiding you to those charming, lesser-known restaurants where locals gather, offering authentic culinary delights that you won't find in any guidebook. Each step of your journey is carefully curated to ensure that you discover your destination in a way that resonates with your individual tastes and interests.

Our gay culture holidays are renowned for featuring some of the most awe-inspiring and culturally significant sites around the globe. Picture yourself wandering the mystical ruins of Machu Picchu in Peru, where the majesty of the Inca civilization is palpable in every stone. Envision exploring the sprawling temple complexes of Angkor Wat in Cambodia, a testament to the Khmer Empire's architectural prowess. Or, immerse yourself in the ancient Mayan city of Chichen Itza in Mexico, where every pyramid and temple tells a story of a civilization long past. These are just a few of the spectacular cultural highlights that await you. To embark on a gay culture holiday that you will cherish for a lifetime, we invite you to reach out to one of our luxury travel experts. They are ready to tailor your dream holiday, combining luxury, culture, and an authentic connection to the places you visit.

Best Culture Holidays

Machu Picchu was built by the Incas in the 15th century. No one knows exactly what purpose it served, but it was clearly a fortress and royal residence of some kind. When the conquistadors invaded Peru and brought down the Inca civilization, Machu Picchu was abandoned and forgotten. It was “rediscovered” in the early 20th-century. It’s been the major cultural highlight of Peru ever since. The so-called Lost City of the Incas has to be seen once in a lifetime.

Ayutthaya was once the capital of Thailand. It prospered from 1350 to 1767, when it was overrun by the Burmese. Today and it’s a splendid ruin and major cultural highlights of Thailand. It takes roughly an hour to drive from Ayutthaya to Bangkok.

Cancun is a great resort destination and a perennial favourite for Out Of Office travellers. Many of the resorts offer all-inclusive options, so you can unwind and indulge all you like. Eventually, all the relaxation could become exhausting and you may be craving a culture fix. If so, take a trip to Chichén Itzá and catch a glimpse of the Mayan civilization that once prospered in what is now Mexico. The temples are remarkably well preserved.

Other Highlights For A Culture Holiday

Santorini is one of our most popular trips for a romantic holiday. If you’re looking for a culture fix in Santorini head to Akrotiri. Here you’ll see a rare glimpse of life in the Bronze Age. The Minoans once flourished in these parts until the eruption of Thera unleashed a wave of destruction around 3,500 years ago. The volcanic eruption preserved some of the frescoes painted by Minoan artists. They’re some of the world’s oldest surviving artworks.

Art enthusiasts will be enthralled by Italy. European aristocrats used to set out on grand tours of the continent to discover the cultural highlights of the Renaissance and antiquity. In many ways, the grand tours created tourism as we now know it. Unless you’d visited Italy and seen its great artworks, you wouldn’t have been considered cultured.

The constituent parts of the UK are made up of very ancient cultures. When Lincoln Cathedral was completed in 1311, it was the world’s tallest buildings and the first building to ascend higher than the Great Pyramid Of Giza. The UK’s vast capital city was originally founded by the Romans, partly abandoned when they left and later the centre of the world’s biggest empire. London is a great cultural highlight, as it combines ancient history with hyper-modernity.
