Nómadas goes to Beijing

By Anthony Vasquez

This past weekend, the travel radio show Nómadas from Spanish National Radio featured the city of Beijing.

Nómadas (which in Spanish means Nomads), has been on the air on Spanish public radio and online for more than a year and a half now. The show, narrated in Spanish by Álvaro Soto, has taken listeners to many fascinating places around the world including Ecuador, New Zealand, Iceland, Mumbai and Tuvalu, among dozens of others.

The Beijing show features a trip to the Drum Tower, the Temple of Heaven, and Tiananmen Square. Along with these short segments, the show includes short features on Chinese food, Chinese cinema, and the history of Beijing.

Nómadas has showcased other places in China. Last February a show on Hong Kong was published. The show has also traveled to Lhasa, the capital of the Tibetan Autonomous Region, and Yunnan province.

Shows are broadcast on Spanish National Radio every Saturday morning at 7:00 Spanish Time (GMT +1:00). They are usually online by the following Monday.
