At a glance

Combining the city of Bangkok with the nearby island retreat of Ko Samet is the ideal way to enjoy both city and beach in Thailand without flying down to the south of the island. Just three hours from Bangkok, Ko Samet is the ideal weekend beach getaway for visitors and locals alike.

Whilst most tourists head further south for their island visits you will find fewer visitors here which makes it ideal and more authentic in our opinion. A great deal of the island is protected as part of Khao Laem Ya-Mu Ko Samet National Park, making it clean and relatively unspoilt. Start your trip in Bangkok for three days before driving and taking the ferry to Ko Samet for four nights.

LGBT rights in Thailand

Thailand is only becoming more hospitable and welcoming to visiting LGBTQ+ tourists. Whilst also the case throughout the general population, amongst the country’s younger population especially, the issue of gender and sexuality is very much accepted and Thailand is now one of the world’s most popular destinations for gay travelers.

In detail

Day 1 to 3: Bangkok

Arrive in the heart of Thailand’s capital which is sure to thrill as you explore night markets, historic temples and the waterways of the city.

Enjoy luxury at one of the capital’s beautiful hotels as your base for exploring the fascinating city of Bangkok.

We’ll design an itinerary especially for you based on your interests. We would recommend an early morning visit to Wat Pho to witness the monks’ chanting ritual. It’s one of the oldest temples in Bangkok and home to the famous 45-metre reclining Buddha.

A visit to the Grand Palace is also on the cards – it’s one of the most important and impressive royal palaces in Thailand.

You should also consider a visit to Aor Tor Kor Market, one of the best fresh markets in Bangkok, with various agricultural products and delicious desserts available to please your palate.

In the evening, head out with either a guide or by yourself to explore the nightlife, bars and night markets on offer.

Day 1 to 3: Bangkok

Day 4 to 7: Ko Samet

Today we’ll arrange for you to take a private car for the drive from Bangkok down towards Ko Samet. You’ll take a private speedboat over to the beautiful island and secluded location on Ao Kiew Beach where you’ll stay in the stunning Paradee Resort and Spa hotel.

A truly luxury resort that comes with well-deserved reviews, the Thailand island is both gay-friendly and ideal for those looking to escape.

Enjoy one of just 40 luxurious appointed villas, all with an incredible view of either lush tropical gardens or white sandy beaches framed by the Gulf of Thailand.

The idyllic place to spend four days relaxing.
