Bryce Canyon by Michael Siebert in ManAboutWorld gay travel magazineMichael snapped these pictures while hiking the Navajo Trail of Bryce Canyon. The Navajo Trail is the most scenic and popular section to hike. It’s easy and gorgeous; however, going in the off season (September, after Labor Day) is ideal.

Bryce Canyon Travel tip:
  • U.S. Highway 89 links several national parks from Canada/USA border all the way to Arizona. Take two weeks to drive this route and spend as much time in the parks as you wish.

Photo du jour: Pemangku priest in Bali, Indonesia and in ManAboutWorld gay travel magazine

Pemangku priest

While traveling in Bali, Indonesia, ManAboutWorld Global Correspondent Michael Siebert snapped this cool photo of a pemangku priest in Indonesia. In his words:

While enjoying a double espresso at Capil Bar and Grill, in Bali, Indonesia, I took this image of a pemangku priest. This is the cleric who overseas the needs of a temple and its congregation. He was exiting the cafe with his morning meal.

Beijing hutong

The “Hutong” of Beijing — narrow lanes forming a traditional residential area — is fast disappearing. Our friends Sebastien and Stefan of the NomadicBoys visited Beijing during their trek around Asia and brought back this photo of a very lively hutong which you can also see on their Facebook page.

Read more about their exploration of this hutong and others here.

This report on Dreamy Budapest is brought to us by ManAboutWorld correspondent, Phil Rake.

The beauty of Budapest is like no other. A place so picturesque, it’s as if it were conjured in a poet’s dream. This beauty — the product of a rich and diverse history — pervades every aspect of the city, from the art and culture to the people and, of course, the amazing architecture. Influenced by a variety of styles (including Roman, Ottoman, Gothic, Baroque, Romantic, Art Nouveau), Budapest is home to some of the world’s most exquisite buildings, bridges, parks and sculptures. The past is very much alive in the architecture and the city is brimming with elegance and splendour. If you’re a traveller who loves to explore, then this Budapest is definitely for you. 

Budapest is also renowned for its spas and thermal springs, the waters of which are said to have healing properties. Some of the spas, like

the Széchenyi Bath are truly stunning and offer visitors the chance to experience a tradition that dates back to Roman times. 

 But it’s not just about beautiful buildings and bathhouses. There is also music and opera, shopping, great cuisine, and a wealth of trendy bars, clubs and galleries. Budapest even has a small but thriving gay scene and the allure of the city has helped it to become one of the most fashionable European destinations for gay and lesbian travellers.

 A tip for our ManAboutWorld travellers: If you really want to experience the beauty of Budapest, then take a trip up to Fisherman’s Bastion at sunset. There is a moment just before dusk, when the sun begins to slip away behind the Buda Hills, setting the sky ablaze in hues of amber, pearl and pink. In the distance, the Hungarian Parliament Building glistens like a jewel whilst its radiant reflection dances on the mighty Danube. This is a spectacle that everyone should see at least once in their lifetime.

MoanaThe historic Moana Hotel opened its doors in 1901, the first in Waikiki, but as old as it is, Aikane (same-sex relationships) in Hawaii predate it by at least two centuries. The hotel is still recognizable from the outside, though everything around it has changed. The Moana isn’t one of the nine hotels we recommend in our Hawaii cover story, but you can download the full issue for free here and see them all.

Marrakech

Marrakech

Our Global Correspondent Sebastian White is a communications manager for a major airline and a frequent, passionate traveler. We spoke to him about his love of travel and selected his journeys as this month’s Parting Shots in our magazine. Here’s the expanded story and more of his photos.

1. Why do you love travel?
When I was younger, I thought of travel as ticking places off a bucket list. Then one day, in someplace faraway and unfamiliar, it clicked: travel is a lens through which we learn about ourselves and begin to understand our tiny place in the bigger world. It’s about realizing the world goes on forever – and it goes on with or without us.

2. How far in advance do you plan your trips?
Spontaneity has always been my thing. I’m almost always a last-minute traveler. More than once I’ve been at the airport and still not sure where to go!

3. Who do you travel with?
I love the flexibility of traveling solo. But I always try to visit friends in other cities, or make new ones.

camel

After a breathlessly exciting week of gay news and then Gay Pride we thought it was time for a little R&R. Well, why not try a camel trek in Western Australia? That’s exactly what ManAboutWorld Global Correspondent Michael Siebert did. Here’s his report, just in.

I’m at Cable Breach. In Broome Western Australia. I just took this picture. June-September is ideal weather in this area. The camel ride is the classic thing to do here … I was on ” tiny” the largest camel in cable beach.

ArcencielstudiVallarta-48[1] PVThis photo comes to us courtesy of Puerto Vallarta Carnival, which took place earlier this year, but we loved the colors and the sexy look of this disguised stranger.

It’s not a gay event per se but with all those feathered, bejeweled and made-up guys, there’s certainly something at least a bit queer about it.

Speaking of PV, we recently covered their upcoming Pride. Click here for more information.
