The Top Gay Travel Destinations for Singles
A trip to one of these recommended gay travel destinations for singles pretty much guarantees you’re going to have a blast. Here are some gay-friendly hotspots for non-partnered travelers to enjoy themselves.
Meet other travelers easily, mingle with friendly locals, or party all night with a crowd of potential new gay friends!
#7: Prague - The Easygoing Gay Destination for Singles
Starting off the list of places you need to visit while you’re single is the city of Prague. The gay-friendly Czech Republic is full of laid-back locals looking for a good time in their city.
Before you know it, you’ll be perched on the Prague Metronome monument enjoying a drink at one of Prague’s frequent outdoor gatherings.
There always seems to be a festival of some sort going on in Prague. The locals love their outdoor concerts and music festivals. For the single traveler, it’s probably the easiest way to make some new friends out in the summer sun.
Don’t forget to check out some of Prague’s gay bars and lounges, too.
#6: Mexico City - The Culture-Rich Destination for Gay Singles
Mexico City has the perfect balance of awesome nightlife, stunning cultural experiences, and easy day trip adventures.
When I was in Mexico’s capital, I found tons of other gay travelers around. Some were locals enjoying a night out, and others were tourists like me! The city is friendly, colorful, and loaded with taquerias.
Mexico is one of the best gay destinations for singles in North America because it’s so easy to meet other guys. I made friends with a gay local one day just walking through one of the city’s beautiful parks.
#5: Naples - The Lesser-Known Destination for Gay Singles
The best of Italy is truly found in Naples, a destination with a bigger nightlife scene than you might have expected. Mingling with the locals is a breeze when crowds flood the city streets. There’s always a ton of laughter and a great atmosphere.
Italians who are proudly from Naples are always glad to show a single gay traveler around some famous sites. They’ll probably introduce you to a few of their friends, too!
Naples gets a bad reputation for being unsafe, which may have you asking why I would include it in this list of top single gay travel destinations.
Truthfully, there’s nothing to be apprehensive about. Lots of safety information for Naples is outdated, which means you should take advantage of the beauty Naples has to offer.
#4: Bangkok - Southeast Asia's Best Gay Travel Destination for Singles
Youthful international backpackers fill the streets of Bangkok while meandering their majestic routes about Southeast Asia. These adventurous souls contribute to the beautiful vibe that Bangkok is known for.
They’re eager to explore the world’s beauty while mingling with new people. Many Bangkok tourists are traveling alone, so you’ll fit right in as a single gay traveler.
#3: Hong Kong - The Best City for Gay Singles to Meet New Friends
If you prefer East Asia, then Hong Kong it is! A huge presence of Americans, Brits, and Australians makes socializing a breeze.
Head out to Peel Street for a good time with the bankers or enjoy some of the best drag shows in Asia at Petticoat Lane gay bar. All of the expats make Hong Kong one of the best gay destinations for singles to make friends.
Hong Kong has way more to offer than just nightlife. Traverse the iconic Mid-Levels neighborhood, ascend Victoria Peak and peruse the Wan Chai Markets. Walking the winding streets of central Hong Kong will be more picturesque than you can imagine.
#2 Lisbon - A Summertime Hotpot for Single Gays
In Lisbon, single gay guys are everywhere! They come from all over, too. You’ll commonly find a mix of Americans and European tourists from France, Spain, and the United Kingdom.
Summertime is especially popular in Lisbon when travelers can take advantage of the beloved local gay beaches and eat at quaint outdoor restaurants.
Both are great opportunities for single travelers to meet people as well. You can cruise in the dunes adjacent to the gay beach while wearing some sexy swimwear, or plan a wholesome dinner date with someone new!
#1 Barcelona - The Top Gay Travel Destination for Singles
Finally, the most epic single gay travel destination there is…set your sights on Barcelona. I may be partial, but the men in Barcelona are staggeringly handsome.
You’ll find them everywhere too, whether it’s the grocery store, the beach, or the club. They’re friendly and are always open to meeting new friends with their Spanish charm.
Barcelona has some of the best gay nightlife in Europe. Foam parties, thumping clubs like The Black Room, and circuit festivals are just the beginning. There’s always a gay party happening in Barcelona. Get ready to party until the sun comes up.
If you’re visiting Barcelona, make sure you stay in the right neighborhoods where you won’t find any tourists!
Single gay travelers love meeting new friends on group tours and trips. Check out the awesome vacations offered by top gay vacation and tour companies.
