Laurène Pineau, designer Prague! I’m a huge fan of all things creepy, kooky, mysterious and spooky, and Prague certainly delivered with its stunning gothic architecture, horror-themed bars, and my favourite: the Sedlec Ossuary bone church Joseph Sinclair, photographer The Chateau Marmont Hotel on Sunset Blvd, in LA. It’s an historic place and makes you feel as if you’ve walked back in time to vintage Hollywood. An amazing shoot location, too: the decor is divine Markus Bidaux, travel editor Naming the greatest place on Earth is an impossible task, but it’s hard to beat sunset while on Table Mountain in South Africa. I had a perfect view of Cape Town when I got to the (flat) top and just as the sun was setting, a carpet of clouds rolled in which went from golden to candyfloss…

editor in chief’s letter

Welcome to Attitude’s annual Travel issue. For moi, family holidays were almost always spent in Cyprus, visiting relatives. It wasn’t until I was 17 years old that I was allowed to vacation without parental figures. The destination my friends and I opted for? Benidorm. No joke. A seven-night stay in a below-average apartment for £225, including flights. At 17, that kind of money isn’t easy to come by, so you take what you can get. That experience has made every holiday destination since feel like Monaco. Deeply in the closet at the time and holding a torch for my then best friend, after he hooked up with his latest female friend one night, I snuck off to a gay bar. Not having the courage to step through the door, I sat outside for…

NOKA CAMP Take a walk on the wild side at Noka Camp in South Africa. Tucked inside the Lapalala Wilderness Reserve, the complex – opened by Lepogo Lodges in September – sits atop a 100ft rock-face and offers stunning views of the winding Palala River below. Each luxury villa has a sunken bath, an outdoor heated infinity pool and a “sky bed” so guests can sleep under the stars, should they wish. Doing their bit for the environment, the resort has also gone off the grid and uses solar panels. The chance to spot one of the “big five” on safari, though, is the, ahem, mane attraction. lepogolodges.com BAD BOY Everyone loves a bad boy, and creative director Carolina Herrera de Báez has enlisted Ed Skrein, who played maverick Dick Best inwarfilm Midway, for…

gay away day

Last year, the Sultan of Brunei’s “Dorchester Collection” came under fire after he introduced harsh anti-gay laws in his home land. The (gay) public was abhorred but divided in response. Some people called for an all-out boycott of the properties while others proposed a full-on love in. But what the controversy highlighted was the importance of LGBTQ travellers supporting LGBTQowned and welcoming providers. A record number of queer people are travelling for leisure – accounting for some 88 million journeys and spending in excess of £164bn a year – making us the world’s fourth biggest tourism economy. Research shows that 55 per cent of these travellers will choose to do it with LGBTQowned businesses or those committed to diversity and equal treatment of the community. But what it also shows, is that…
