When you think of gay-friendly countries, China might not exactly jump to the forefront of your mind. You might be surprised how much great stuff there is for gay men and women to see and do in Beijing, though.


It’s low-key, with most people preferring to keep quiet about their personal lives, so you won’t find many gay pride parades or events. There are a few things to do around the city to keep you busy though.


By far the most popular gay nightclub is Destination. It’s targeted at a primarily younger crowd, but anyone can visit here and feel welcome. Funky is also another popular gay club hotspot, while An Club is a local gathering place for the lesbian community.


Contrary to popular belief, you won’t be arrested just for walking around the city holding hands here. You’re free to be yourself.

When it comes to local, authentic tapas bars in the capital of Catalonia, they can be considered a dime a dozen. There are loads of options to choose from, so many so the average visitor to Barcelona can be completely confused as to where to even begin a search for pan con tomate. But one unsuspecting gem in the trendy neighborhood of El Born features a no-fuss, no-nonsense approach to traditional Spanish tapas, adding an extra touch of authenticity with the homemade cava.
