Gay Travel Guides

The following are some of the best sources of world-wide gay travel information online, although there are many local guides which may have more relevant information for your destination. If you're looking for a local city guide, a search on Google for "Gay Cityname" will usually produce results but also check GayGuide.net which is a directory of local guides. Also you can find city, regional and worldwide printed guide books.

These include in-depth reviews of accommodations, bars, dining and general tourist info. Subscribers to the magazine get a discount on the cost of the Masterfiles.
