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.

Handsome, peripatetic and adventurous travel bloggers Stefan and Sébastien (the NomadicBoys) traveled throughout Asia, including a stop in Ubud where they lost their vegan virginity:

During our travels on Bali island in Indonesia in September 2015, we visited Fresh, a vegan restaurant in Ubud.

Fresh is a newly opened vegan restaurant, where everything is made from raw vegetables. As vegan virgins, we were concerned we’d leave hungry and unsatisfied. We were extremely surprised, leaving with full bellies and really excited to discover a new way of eating. Everything we tried was bursting with flavour.

Our favourite was the avocado tartare starter (peppers, coriander leaves and cashew cream cheese) and the Living Lasagne (zucchini, sundried tomato, marinara, almond pesto, mixed with citrus salad).

The NomadicBoys with their infamous teaspoons

This month’s Memento is “our indispensable teaspoon” by the handsome and peripatetic NomadicBoys, our roving correspondents and a gay couple sharing their tales of the road with the world. In the Memento section of the magazine we invite our correspondents and readers to share something they, ahem, acquired on the road that become an object they can’t leave for home without. Do you have a memento you’d like to share? Let us know!

by the NomadicBoys 

On board the Trans-Siberian railway, the fierce old lady Provodnitsas, train attendants look after each carriage snarling at your every move. The samovars, tea urns, dispensing hot water allow you to produce tea/soup/coffee from sachets. These obviously need a teaspoon to stir them, which Madame Provodnitsa loaned to us. We never gave it back. This simple treasure has not only become a memento of our Trans-Siberian adventure but also an indispensable tool during our travels. Along with our Swiss army knife, this simple teaspoon has unlocked the pleasures of our favorite fruit (papayas) on the beach in the Maldives or at the Kuang Si Falls in Laos. This little spoon has become so important to us that we’ve now “acquired” a second one! Too bad for Madame Provodnitsa. If only she would smile more.

This blog post on gay Vietnam was originally published by the peripatetic NomadicBoys on their blog; it’s reproduced in part here. Click here to read the entire blog post on their site.

We spent a month travelling in Vietnam during April and May 2015.

We started in the South in motorbike crazy Ho Chi Minh City (still called Saigon by locals). We discovered a few gay bars in Saigon with our friend Quan.

We then headed to Central Vietnam to Hoi An, Hue and Da Nang. In Hoi An we immersed ourselves in the yummy food with a cooking class and a foodie tour with the excellent Vespa Adventures. We learnt to make delicious Cau Lao noodles and yummy Banh Xeo pancakes.

Our final stop was in the North in Hanoi where saw the famous water puppet show and also took an overnight cruise to the magnificent Halong Bay.

Here’s our gay Vietnam travel video of our month eating our way South to North (above). Click here to see their previous post on gay Vietnam.

This blog post on gay Cambodia was originally published by the peripatetic NomadicBoys on their blog; it’s reproduced in part here. Click here to read the entire blog post on their site.

We spent 2 weeks travelling in Cambodia in April 2015 with our friends Jess from the UK and Johan from France.

We started in the capital city of Phnom Penh where we discovered a very exciting gay scene with local boy Aaron.

We then headed to Siem Reap to explore the world famous temples of Angkor Wat. In Siem Reap we also saw the excellent Phare Circus and got quite involved in the water and talcum powder throwing during the Khmer New Year celebrations around Pub Street.

We finished our Cambodian travels exploring the beaches around Sihanoukville. Otres Beach was our favourite: peaceful, few people and a great base to take a tour to visit the surrounding islands.

Above is our Cambodia travel video of our 2 weeks discovering this remarkable country.

ManAboutWorld’s April issue features gay Cambodia.
