Like most people, LGBTQ+ travelers are looking forward to a new year that will allow for safer and more hassle-free travel. And there are plenty of reasons to look forward to 2022.

A top international choice for kicking off the new year in party mode is White Party Bangkok, billed as Asia’s largest gay New Year’s Eve festival. There’s yet another chance to celebrate when the Thai new year begins in April, with the massive G Circuit Songkran Festival attracting still more LGBTQ+ revelers.

The first months of the new year prove a great time for skiers; among the best options for LGBTQ+ travelers are Colorado’s Aspen Gay Ski Week, Switzerland’s Arosa Gay Ski Week and Canada’s 29th annual Whistler Pride and Ski Festival, all in January.

Tour operators and travel agencies, meanwhile, make it easy for LGBTQ+ globetrotters to rediscover the pleasure of travel. In South America, Out in Colombia — winner of the 2021 Impact Award from the International LGBTQ+ Travel Association — offers a fresh array of Colombia tour options, while a travel agency called Travel Brilliant upped its family-friendly LGBTQ+ vacation options, including a new “gay dads family spring break” offer at Universal Orlando Resort.

Orlando, in fact, offers multiple new reasons to visit in 2022. Walt Disney World continues marking its 50th anniversary with fresh entertainment likely to make the next Gay Days events even more fun. New hotels in the area include Lake Nona Wave Hotel, opening this month and featuring LGBTQ+ performers as part of its entertainment roster.

Pride events will likely be larger in 2022, giving travelers more reasons to head to destinations like New York City, Amsterdam and Puerto Rico, which hosts two vibrant celebrations. Travelers looking for pride-worthy accommodations in the northeastern United States, meanwhile, should consider Connecticut’s Foxwoods Resort Casino, which debuted a Rainbow Suite at Fox Tower in partnership with Bubly sparkling water. It’s just one of the many venues ready to welcome LGBTQ+ travelers in the new year.

Cheval Blanc Paris Review

Since Cheval Blanc, an extraordinary, newly designed and refurbished 72-room hotel owned by Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessey, launched in September 2021, it has been the talk of the town. Le Tout-Paris remarks about its WOW factor … and the hard-to-get reservations for the 30 seats at Plenitude, the intimate, first-floor gastronomic outlet headed by chef Arnaud Donckele, who earned three Michelin stars at Cheval Blanc Saint Tropez. Reservations are also recommended for Limbar, the ground-floor bakery/café/tea shop/bar where we watched Pastry Chef Maxime Frédéric preparing desserts and an absolute must-have for dinner at Le Tout-Paris, the 7th-floor, all-day brasserie. This brightly colored space, with its raised seating and Fauve-like floor tiles and the adjacent Milanese restaurant, Langosteria, both have access to terraces facing the Seine River, with amazing views encompassing Notre Dame to the Eiffel Tower.
