The Asian Faeries invite you to the 2008
Thursday, January 17 through Sunday, January 27, 2008 Gay men from around the world will converge on the magical island of Ko Yao Yai near Phuket, Thailand. Last year's gathering found 35 men beaming into our island paradise from the US, Middle East, Europe and all over Asia. This year we are again expecting a big turnout as those who attended from 2004 to 2007 spread the word throughout Asia and the world. So please plan ahead and register early as space is limited.

Men in mind - Hiranyikara pampers body and soul
I had a tough time recently. Traveling gay Singapore, gay Cambodia and gay Thailand for six weeks with my friend David from Berlin took its toll. He was annoying. With relief, I finally waved him good-bye as the taxi drove off to Singapore`s Changi airport from where David flew back to his hometown Berlin. I needed a break. Phuket, I decided, is the perfect place to relax. Hence, I booked myself into the ever so welcoming Club One Seven B & B in Patong Beach. "I need to recharge my batteries", I tell Daniel. The manager of Patong`s gay boutique hotel Club One Seven smiles and says: "Why don`t you treat yourself with an indulgent afternoon at the new Spa for men Hiranyikara?" Sounded perfect to me. Daniel made a booking, arranged for a transport, since the Hiranyikara is in Kathu, 20 minutes by car from Patong. Read more

I love Gay Phuket / I hate Gay Phuket
Arriving at Phuket airport the view is spectacular. As the plane gets closer and closer to the water you wonder whether or not you will make it this time as usual, or... and then you are quite sure, this time the plane is really going to fall into the Andaman sea. But then a secure touch down as always, the plane brakes and slowly follows the path to the terminal. Gay Phuket, here I am once more, I just love you! This is my twelfth - yes, correct, twelfth time in gay paradise. I just love gay Phuket!

Even arriving at Phuket airport is a pain in the ass. First of all the planes land far to close to the water, it looks very dangerous and - believe me - if in Thailand something looks dangerous, it normally is. My last trip in gay Phuket was definitely my last. Okay, the landscape of the so called Pearl of the Andaman is quite nice. But if you want to go to one of the unspoiled beaches, there is no gay night life whatsoever. So you always end up in sleazy gay Patong beach instead. I just hate gay Phuket! Read more

Ed.note: The writer is an avid international traveler whose primary residence is on Maui, Hawaii. On the morning of Dec. 26, 2004, I awoke to the sounds of police sirens and the clattering of helicopters circling Patong Beach. The first three waves of the now infamous tsunami had a... Read more

Bad luck for Singapore is good luck for Phuket
Gays in Singapore have to be clever to cope with their governments off and on attitude. What today is legal, might be forbidden tomorrow or not tolerated any longer-which has the same knockout effect. The newest example is the famous Nation party which used to be a successful event i... Read more

Join Club One Seven Phuket!

TSUNAMI account from PATONG
Going through my head is "What the fuck am I doing rivited to the spot at the entrance of my hotel, mesmerised by the sight of a bloody great wall of water coming straight at me and which will possibly wipe us, and my hotel, out of existence ?" Through a numbness that had suddenly gripped me... Read more

Alone In Patong (But Not For Long)
Patong Beach should be called Farang beach because thats what it is: A public pool for tourists spread over four kilometers of clean beach. There is a gay beach, Ive been told, but gays being so into-your-face all over the place, I didnt notice it. Maybe they should mark it with pink umbrellas. ... Read more
