Gay-friendly nightlife and world-class wine in Lisbon

Portugal has been voted the world’s most gay-friendly destination. There’s a dynamic LGBTQ scene in Lisbon – the Bairro Alto district and neighbouring Principe Real are where it’s all concentrated – and in Porto, as well as many of the main tourist cities of the Algarve. Culture Trip’s group trip to Portugal takes in both Lisbon and Porto, and is a great option for seniors wanting to explore this beautiful southern European nation. The leisurely eight-day Rail Trip passes through a leading wine region, takes in a culinary walking tour of Lisbon and a rabelo boat ride down the River Douro.

Lush rainforest and activities for all ages in Costa Rica

Costa Rica has one of the best records for LGBTQ rights in Central America. Additionally, it boasts a beautiful coastline, volcanic beaches and lush forests, making it an ideal destination for gay senior travel. Culture Trip’s eight-day Pura Vida experience encompasses western Costa Rica, heading from the capital of San José to Tamarindo. While it’s a group trip, it is designed to be flexible, so you can take things at your own pace – whether you want to be adventurous with ziplining and whitewater rafting through the jungle, explore at a slower pace as you spot hummingbirds and sloths, or take it easy on a beach day with views of the Pacific.

Raohe Night Market, Taipei, Taiwan

Street food delights and luscious countryside in Taiwan

Taiwan is arguably the most LGBTQ-friendly country in all of Asia, becoming the continent’s first country to achieve marriage equality in 2019. The heart of the queer community here very much lies in the capital, Taipei, which has an incredible nightlife and is home to the largest Pride march in all of Asia. Our nine-day loop tour of Taiwan starts and ends in the capital, where you’ll be able to sample the city’s bustling night markets and take a Taiwanese cooking class. The meat of the sandwich is a pretty comprehensive tour of the island, stopping off at the serene Sun Moon Lake, the unique cities of Taichung, Tainan and Kaohsiung, and the stunning rock formations of Taroko Gorge. You’ll return to Taipei via a stunning coastal train ride and an environmentally friendly sky-lantern experience in Shifen.
