Nine Lounge and Bar Phuket Thailand

( Post by Carlos Melia ) I would have to say that Nine Lounge & Bar was my favorite bar in Phuket which you may refer to as a gay bar if you wish, but goes far beyond from that. Next to Lim’s Restaurant, fantastic Thai Food. Great drinks, beautiful indoor/outdoor design. Regardless gay or straight, the place to be seen in Phuket, after 10PM till the music fades away or you decide to move on to Soi Paradise. Conde Nast Traveller included them into their 2009 Hotlist of World’s Best Bars. Ask for my friend Daniel there, and tell him Carlos Melia sent you, maybe you’ll get a drink on me, or an extra shot of vodka in your drink. Post by Carlos Meliawww.carlosmeliablog.com

There’s a pleasant breeze blowing down Bangkok’s Chao Praya River this morning, much to the delight of those enjoying breakfast at Mandarin Oriental, Shangri-La, and other vaunted luxury hotels that line it. At the former, a gay couple sprinkle chopped chives on each other’s sunny-side-up eggs and suck up the Los Angeles-like springtime weather.

Exploring the Bridge over River Kwai and more

( Post by Carlos Melia ) The province of Kanchanaburi is close to Bangkok and borders to Myanmar (Burma). Although there is plenty to see in this region, the Bridge over River Kwai, the museum , Don-Rak Cementery and the ride over the Death Railway are the main attraction, so I went for it. A full day tour, driving for over 2 hours from center Bangkok to the River Kwai Bridge. River Kwai and the Bridge . After entering the Second War in December 1941, Japanese forces quickly overran most of South East Asia. In 1942, in order to find a shorter and more secure line of supply between Burma (now Myanmar) and Siam (now Thailand), the Japanese decided to use prisoners of war and civilian labour to build a single line railway to link existing railheads at Thanbyuzayat in the west and Ban Pong in the east.

Thailand a very strong case on LGBT Travel by CNN

( Post by Carlos Melia ) According to CNN GO with base in Asia, Thailand is a very strong case on LGBT Travel compared to other Asian destinations. And I am happy and honored to say that CarlosMeliaBlog.com has a big part on that. Last week during the 1st. Asian Gay and Lesbian Tourism and Hospitality Symposium, together with the Marketing team of the Tourism Authority of Thailand with base in New York, we showed to the attendees and the international press the work we have been doing in mutual collaboration to position Thailand as the top LGBT friendly destination in Asia and among the top 10 in the World. India was the host country of this Symposium, which took place in New Delhi, mainly supported and coordinated by the private sector, with complete absence of the Indian Tourism Office, which put a big question mark into many of us. Completely different is the case of Thailand, where the Tourism Office has joined the private sectors to promote and potentiate the arrival of regional and international LGBT travelers from all over the world with main focus on Luxury, Gourmet, Wine, Culture, Religion, Beach and Adventure. I was appointed by TAT New York to be the person to research and communicate this message through my blog and other various international media outlets. Proud and honored to have such and important network like CNN recognize the work and effort that together TAT New York and myself have been working very hard for the last few months. Thank you CNN GO for empathizing with our project. You may read the full article @ India: Unofficially ready for gay travelers. Mai Pen Rai Thailand. Post by Carlos Meliawww.carlosmeliablog.com
