Thailand is a popular destination in Asia for LGBTQ+ travelers. The Thais are extremely welcoming people and have been embracing LGBTQ+ tourists for decades. Thailand is frequently referred to as The Land of Smiles, and for good reason. Most involved with the tourism industry in Thailand speak English, so language barriers will rarely be a problem here. The capital city, Bangkok is very modern, and a transport hub for destinations in Asia. Chiang Mai to the north is the country’s second-biggest city. It is located in the mountains and famous for its temples and outdoor adventure. The Thai islands are popular beach destinations, particularly Phuket, Koh Samui, Koh Tao and Koh Phi Phi. Although Thailand is not as LGBTQ+ friendly as North America and Western Europe by comparison, by Asian standards, it is one of the most LGBTQ+ friendly countries on the continent.
LIVING THE BIG CITY, SMALL TOWN LIFE IN SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS
My first impressions of the city were not what I expected or had in my head for the seventh-largest and 3rd fastest growing city in the US, a city that attracts more than 34.4 million visitors a year. I prepared myself for big, tall, brown, desert-like city and landscape. But instead, San Antonio was impressively green, spacious and not overly vertical.
