Paradise on Earth does exist and Southern Thailand is about as close to heaven as you can get. Fantastic weather, sparkling beaches, oceans teaming with coral and tropical fish, jungles where animals still rule over man. Whether you are looking for the peaceful serenity of golden sand and sun, or non-stop tropical nightlife, Thailand is waiting to embrace you. Our all-inclusive beach vacation packages offer both convenience and great value.

Phuket, Pearl of the Andaman Sea

Phuket is Thailand's largest island and one of the Kingdom's most popular destinations. Visitors can choose between luxurious resorts that offer privacy and isolation, or hotels in every price range with big-city pleasures nearby.

In Phuket we offer all-inclusive packages to suit practically everyone:

Phuket Side Trips

Pang Na Bay dot Cruise Through Surreal and Majestic Fantasy Islands

Koh Ngai

Heavenly Koh Ngai dot Never heard of Koh Ngai? It is a well kept secret. It's almost (but not quite) a private island with no roads, and sparkling beaches that you do not have to share with anyone else. If you are looking for wild nightlife, this is not the place for you. But if you are looking for serenity away from mobs of tourists who do not speak your language, Koh Ngai may be your personal paradise.

Koh Samui

Sensual Samui dot Lose yourself in splendid tropical bliss for two days or more. Samui has been Thailand's last bastion of heterosexuality. That began to change in 2006 with the blossoming of gay life on one of Thailand's most magically beautiful resort islands. It's not Pattaya and never will be. For those seeking a pleasurable environment with a small but growing gay scene, Samui is is becoming a better and better choice.

Pleasurable Pattaya

We offer a basic two-night package in Pattaya. You can add extra nights and more activities to tailor your stay to suit you. Just go here.

What We Do

Purple Dragon is Asia's oldest, largest and most respected tour operator specializing in programs for discerning gay and lesbian travelers. All of our tours are private and include private transportation and one of our legendary private guides. We do not offer group tours. The big advantage to a private tour is, of course, that you do not have to put up with other people or compromise your own schedule or activities to suit others in a group. You can spend a bit more time at places that really matter to you, avoid places that do not, and go at your own pace. We use gay-owned or LGBT-friendly hotels wherever possible and show our guests the local gay nightlife where it exists. You do not have to be gay to enjoy one of our all-inclusive tour packages. A growing number of mainstream guests travel with Purple dragon because they know they will get something better from a gay company.
