For single guys, going on vacation is all about creating the best time possible no matter where – but it helps to be in a city or country that will enhance that feeling. The prime holiday places for singles need a good combination of scenery, things to do and, of course, great nightlife.

Bangkok, Thailand. One of the best holiday places for singles.

Thailand is everything you’d expect from an Asian country – it’s a bustling mix of the ancient with the utterly modern, all wrapped up in a colorful explosion of beauty.

The beauty you find is in the ancient temples and the friendly smiles of the people, but it runs much deeper than that. It runs skin deep, and especially in the natural beauty of the millions of single Thai women living here.

Of all the overlooked destinations in Asia for a single guy to visit, Bangkok is top of that list. Why?

It is probably because it’s developed a reputation as being “too popular” as a holiday places for singles- a place for single men to visit – mostly because it was a player’s paradise for a long time.
