Last year October/November was my first time to Thailand (Bangkok and Phuket).  I'm considering another trip around the same time this year.  I want to do a different beach destination this time and was considering Krabi.  Mostly just looking to relax on the beach, but want a little fun too.  I'm not finding much info on "Gay Krabi".  Anyone have any advice?  Or is there another beach destination (not including Phuket) that I should consider?

Ko Samui, Hua Hin, Pattaya and Fresh Beach Boys  bar in Bangkok's soi twilight comes to my mind

The main resort in Krabi is Ao Nang,    There are about 10 girlie gogo bars and no gay scene at all.  At best, you're goig   

 

Hua Hin has a couple of gay bars, but when I visited, I think there were about 3 lads in each, of which just 1 interested me.  Had a quick and unsatisfactory massage upstairs with him.   Met one lad on the phone apps.

 

Pattaya has a very good gay scene and a beach, although it's heavily developed rather than unspoilt.

Samui has a bit of a gay scene, mostly centered around Chaweng.  A bar or two, a couple of massage places.  But I think people who go there hoping for a robust gay scene are disappointed.  (Same as Hua Hin.)  Samui has some nice beaches and other things to do, but it's not as pretty as Krabi.  And like anywhere else there are parts utterly lacking in charm.  There are nice places to go and get away from it all on nearby Koh Phangan and tiny Koh Tao ("Murder Island") but I think best to bring companionship with you if that's important.  There used to be a gay-ish bar with a ladyboy show on Koh Tao, but I don't know if it's still there.   Also some decent SCUBA opportunities off of Koh Tao.  

 

For up-to-date information, there's a very affable expat guy who runs Rainbow SCUBA who also offered tours of Samui.  That could be something to do and he could give you an up-to-date intro to the scene there.

 

The Bangkok bar formerly known as Fresh Beach Boys has just been going by the name Fresh Boys for several years now.
