At Purple Roofs, we list thousands of gay and lesbian owned and friendly accommodations around the world - bed and breakfasts, vacation rentals, hotels, guest houses, and much more. We also list hundreds of gay and lesbian friendly travel agents and tour operators.
Unlike many other travel directories, Purple Roofs is not a simple repackaging of mainstream hotel chains for the gay and lesbian market (though we do have a couple of the gay-friendliest) - instead, we offer thousands of locally owned accommodations that you won't find in one place anywhere else.
This is our Malaysia Gay Travel section - here, you'll find Malaysia gay friendly and lesbian and gay owned bed and breakfasts, inns, hotels, vacation rentals, and other accommodations. We also list Malaysia travel agents and tour operators, as well as local gay travel events, gay travel news, and much more.
At Purple Roofs, we list thousands of gay friendly and gay owned accommodations, and yours could be next. If your accommodations welcome the LGBT community, add them here.
