For the first-time gay visitor to Pattaya, it can be a potential minefield to find all the places that cater to LGBTQ lifestyles and gay saunas in Pattaya. Who wants to crawl around trying to see all the tasty and colourful things. We provide you with all the information on the Thailand and Pattaya gay business and LGBTQ scene so you can turn up in Pattaya, check-in at your gay-friendly guesthouse or hotel and get out there to enjoy the best the city has to offer.
The Pattaya gay scene is a real paradise for foreign gay tourists. Very handsome young Thai men, employed as “hosts” in the local gay bars are willing to become your special friend for a night or two. They can act as your personal “guide” for the duration of your stay in Pattaya, or might even be seeking a foreign boyfriend, too.
Jomtien Beach, Pattaya Gay Scene
The Pattaya gay scene is still mostly commercial. There are also relaxed LGBTQ businesses. Excellent places where you can find friends who head to Jomtien Beach in the afternoon to lie under umbrellas and do some people-watch. Other venues in Jomtien are just a block from the beach in a shophouse complex similar to Phuket’s Paradise Complex.
Walk down to Jomtien Beach near to the Dontan section of the beach to find a dozen gay-patronized beach umbrellas. Walk from the Police box and the point where the main road from Pattaya town hits the beach, make a right and follow the brick bike path or walkway about 200 meters in — especially the area in front of Tui’s Place. Here you will find lots of tourists and Thai LGBTQ people. The section farther down in front of Rabbit Resort is more spread out and attracts local ex-pats and couples. Strolling vendors sell everything and anything under the sun. If you’re lucky, you might meet the artist, Tiwa, who sells cards of his erotic watercolours.
Pattaya’s Boyz Town
Find the most popular gay nightlife options around Boyz Town, just a block from the beach in South Pattaya. Boyz Town has everything you need in one street: bars, clubs, restaurants, hotels, massage and fitness facilities, shows, live entertainment and of course BOYZ.
Pattaya and Jomtien genuinely are a paradise for the modern openly gay man, creating experiences of a lifetime. You will keep coming back for more, time and time again.
A Guide to Gay Saunas in Pattaya
As Pattaya is the epicentre of gay culture in Southeast Asia, it only makes sense that you will find more than enough saunas in the city that cater to the gay LGBTQ people. Read the list of some of the most popular Gay Saunas in Pattaya that come highly recommended.

When it comes to gay and LBFM tourism, Thailand is one of the most open and forward-thinking nations in the world. What is unacceptable as a gay man or woman in the West is entirely different here in Pattaya. As the Thais are such a tolerant bunch and Thailand is home to the most transgender people in the world, this is a place where gay men and women can come, relax and be with like-minded souls.
