Gay Soi 6 – High Season Arrives

Latest news from Chiang Mai’s gayest soi

Gay Soi 6 is getting busy as cool season arrives and tourists head to Chiang Mai.

Despite being in the tropics, Chiang Mai’s greatest attraction has always been its cool season. Three to four months of near perfect weather with blue skies, day time temperatures under thirty degrees and cool nights for perfect sleeping. It hardly ever rains, though don’t say never, and has been noticeably warmer in recent years than in the cool season of old. On mountain peaks, a light frost can even occur, and early morning mists smother valley floors to provide picture postcard scenes.

This is Chiang Mai’s so called high season that runs typically from early November to late February. It is no coincidence that the fabulous weather coincides with both the worst of winter in the cooler climes of the northern hemisphere, and the searing heat of the Australian summer. Chiang Mai therefore provides a veritable respite for many from across the globe in this period. It is also increasingly popular with Asian tourists, and particularly the Chinese who have been coming in droves on direct charter flights.

So as the city cools down and the vistors flood in, what is happening down on Chiang Mai’s gayest soi?

Gay Soi 6 Bar Updates

Ram Bar

Undoubtedly the star of the soi, Ram bar continues to impress with a packed crowd to watch the Secret Show Cabaret every night. The crowd is more mixed than it used to be with the show attracting may younger tourists, as well as the traditional older gays. However, Khun Wat still has his wonderful staff on hand to ensure everyone feels welcome and they do everything to keep the customers happy. Show starts at 10 p.m. but best to go early to get a seat.

Secrets Bar

The death of Ray, Secrets Bar’s Patriarch and resident bar fly earlier this year may have subdued the crowd here for a while, but owner Khun Oh has responded to the challenge and Secrets bar remains one of the favourite places for Chiang Mai’s older ex-pats and knowlegeable visitors to drink. A great selection of young male eye candy playing pool and available enjoy a drink with customers boost the fun atmosphere too. Unlike the other bars on gay soi 6, which are open to public view, Secrets is an enclosed space making offering a discreet environment for amorous encounters.
