Gay Saunas in Chiang Mai are enjoyed by both a large local population and many visiting tourists and resident expats. Gay Chiang Mai has two main saunas; House of Male and Club One Seven Sauna. Both offer a good range of facilities, generally busy and are good value for money.
Gay saunas in Thailand are legal and in general safe.
It’s worth noting that any police action taking against gay saunas has been related to drug-taking, not the gay sex taking place. Thailand has strict laws against illegal drugs and any venues where they are consumed.
HIV infection rate among gay men living in Thailand is as high as 24%. This means nearly 1 in 4 gay men in Thailand are living with HIV. Most saunas also provide condoms and lube.
Like the rest of Chiang Mai, things get going early here. The busiest nights are Fridays and Saturdays from 5 pm – 10 pm.
Keep an eye out for special events which can change things.
Club One Seven is a gay sauna and exclusive gay men hotel. The hotel and sauna is housed in a traditional Thai-style house right on the riverside, located just 15-minute drive from Night Bazaar and Sunday Walking Street on Thapae Road. Read more about the hotel here.
