Edwin, Malaysia & Nicolas, Spain

Bucket List? Sydney for a new year and we’re planning for Europe trip in 2017.

2. Valentine trip to wonderful Thailand

First met? We both exchanged a “few” liked on Instagram 😉 and first met at a little café. It was so lovely!

Top 3 parties? We try to avoid “big” parties but we did really enjoy “The Week” in São Paulo.
Pete, Bangkok & Clarence, Kuala Lumpur
Hardest when traveling as a couple? Surprisingly nothing difficult as we both have a lot of similarities and I like to plan our trips in advance, which that helps 🙂
Bucket List? We’ll be heading to Koh Samet in October (the most popular gay island in Thailand).
First met? We met in Taipei over dinner with our friends. I (Clarence) chose to sit opposite Pete. We exchanged eye contact halfway through dinner and I moved my legs forward to footsie with his, lol
Best trip together? It was in Hua Hin, Thailand to celebrate Pete’s birthday but it felt more like a honeymoon for us. Really romantic and we enjoyed the private pool the most.
Top 3 parties? White Party BKK, Songkran in Thailand, Divine Bliss the 1st anniversary Party in KL. We’ll be heading to ZoukOut in December SG, White Party Bangkok, and Songkran11 🙂
4. From Chicago to charming Asia
Kyle & Jason from Chicago
Hardest when traveling as a couple? Honestly, it’s pretty easy. BUT we share shoes & clothes so sometimes there’s competition to grab what you want first! haha. Jason has zero sense of direction and relies 100% on me (Kyle) 😉

Bucket List? Next city is Taipei, as I’ve heard people said great things about nature and we’re totally down with it 🙂
First met? Our first met was at the gym where I worked, I (Tack) steal his phone number from the gym reception system and we were in a relationship 3 years later 😉

7. Thai hospitality at Banyan Tree Mayakoba
