Hotels Still Making Things Awkward for Gay Couples
By Neal Broverman
A recent survey of 350 respondents conducted by the Gay Asia Travel website found that 20 percent experienced a problem at a hotel because they were part of a same-sex couple. The main issue, according to survey-takers, is that the couples were given single, twin beds when they booked a double. That doesn't seem to be an issue in Las Vegas (see the city's latest commercial below).
Other findings: 30 percent say they travel with a partner, while 54 percent take vacations alone; 16 percent travel with friends.
The top activities for gay Asian travelers is clubbing, followed by sightseeing, shopping, and hitting the beach. Visiting countries known to be LGBT-friendly or at least having a gay scene is very important to travelers, with Bangkok, Singapore, and Bali listed as the three top Asian destinations.
