Bangkok's gay nightlife is touted as being the hub of Southeast Asia for good reason. It boasts some of the best – be it great bars and clubs, saunas or inventive go-go boy shows – when it comes to catering to the rainbow crowd.
Bangkok's gay scene is so active you can party seven nights a week and still find new places to discover, but our list of best gay experiences in Bangkok is a great place to start - whether you want to dip a toe into the community or dive in head first. Prepare to be blown away by a variety of fun and decadent delights tailored to all the kings, queens and everything in between in this ‘City of Angels’.

Given Bangkok’s reputation as a world-class nightlife destination, you can find gay bars and clubs all over the city – however if you’re the type who likes to bar or club hop then the infamous Soi 2 (for clubs) and Soi 4 streets (for bars) are where you are going to want to go.

Gay foreigners flock here in droves – though you can also find plenty of either wealthy locals or those trying to find a meal ticket. There are plenty of gay shows and bars in Patpong, if you are interested in the seedier – or more adventurous – side of Bangkok…though it is not for everyone.

For cheaper drinks and a taste of local queer life heads to bars along Saphan Kawi or in Sukhumvit. Whatever you’re after, Bangkok can provide – and if the BTS or MRT public transport system can’t get you there, ride share apps are cheap and easy way to get directly to where you need to be.

With its infamous Soi 2 and Soi 4, Silom is considered the main gay area of Bangkok. While Soi 2 caters exclusively to those who like dance clubs like DJ Station, Freeman and Expresso, Soi 4 offers a more relaxed atmosphere with pubs, bars and restaurants such as Balcony Bar, Telephone Pub and Sphinx. Most foreigners tend to flock around this area more than others. Both Soi 2 and Soi 4 are located conveniently close to BTS (Sala Daeng) and MRT (Silom) stations.
The tiny alley of Soi 2 is easily missed unless you're looking for it. Soi 4 is just a short walk from Soi 2, directly opposite Soi Convent.

If you want to experience something a little more adventurous, the nearby shady Suriwong and Patpong areas reveal the naughtier side of things. Other notable areas include the Soi Ramkhamhaeng 89/2, or 'Lamsalee'. Many dance clubs can be found here and, due to lower drink prices, most of their customers are Thai university students. The area behind Chutuchak Weekend Market is also a small clutter of gay-dedicated establishments.

There are also bars and saunas along the Saphan Kwai and Sukhumvit areas. But, unlike Silom, these areas are less frequented by tourists and cater for a largely local clientele.
