From a legal standpoint, it is easy to write off Gay Singapore as another homophobic Asian country — after all same-sex activity is technically a criminal offense here, just like in the Maldives, Brunei, Burma, Malaysia and parts of Indonesia. And yet, Singapore continues one of the most popular gay destinations in the region, and after dark, the famous Neil Street in Chinatown comes to life as gay bars, clubs, spas, and saunas open their doors to tourists and foreigners alike. Same-sex sexual activity is illegal under British era sodomy laws — through the law has not been enforced since — and openly gay men in Singapore are still required to attend National Service, but are restricted dates. Singapore has a robust legal system, and hopefully all it takes if for someone to challenge this unfair law and for society to change overnight. For now however while gay travelers should be mindful of the problems LGBT Singaporeans experience, they are unlikely to experience any issues in this dynamic, melting pit of a city-state. Not only does Gay Singapore offers wild nightlife, luxurious gay spas, and futuristic hotels — but there are plenty of green spaces, quirky art galleries, Michelin-starred fine dining, tropical weather and world-class attractions.
