Gay Mae Hong Son

Mae Hong Son,
Thailand

Mae Hong Son, Thailand.
Gay and Lesbian Hotels, Inns and Guest Houses - Reviews and Ratings. Gay and Lesbian Travel.

Mae Hong Son, Thailand's northern border city, hides itself between towering mountains covered with dense forests that stretch to the Burmese border. The scenery and culture of Mae Hong Son is what attracts gay and lesbian travelers year after year. The people of Mae Hong Son consists of the Shans, who live in the city, and the remote hill tribe people who live in villages on the mountain slopes where their lifestyle have changed little in hundreds of years. Both have their own distinctive cultures, their own lilting dialect, their own architectural lifestyles, their own customs and traditions, and their own delicious cuisine.

Although there is no gay specific accommodation in Mae Hong Son, there is a good selection of gay friendly hotels, inns and guesthouses for the gay and lesbian traveler to choose from.

Throughout the year, Mae Hong Son holds many festivals and events. Gay and lesbian travelers can enjoy the distinction cultures during these celebrations including their dances, rituals, and ceremonies. Even the foods are different for each event. The most remarkable tradition and also the most important event for the Shans is "Poy Sanglong Festival", celebrated in March, which is the ordination ceremony for the Shans' boys.

The city is covered with the mist all year long. This has giving Mae Hong Son its nickname of "the City of Three Mists" from the fact that it has dewy mist in the winter, forest fire mist in the summer and rainy mist in the rainy season.

Its hard to argue that any place gay and lesbian travelers can fly to is as remote or isolated, but as your small 72 seater plane threads its way through the mountains and onto the equally small runway practically in the center of town, you get the definite feeling that you're well off the beaten path.

So, for gay and lesbian travelers seeking a different experience to Chiang Rai, then Mae Hong Son, Thailand with its Burmese influences, culture, history, art, food and customs wrapped up in a small town atmosphere, has much to offer.
