New design, more sections and 70 trendspotters worldwide
Seventy trendspotters - local residents in over 60 cities worldwide – will be keeping readers of the travel website El Viajero (The Traveler) up to date on all the latest travel news worldwide. This network, which will be expanded to include other trendspotters based in the world’s most vibrant capital cities, is the main novelty of the Viajero website, which as of today gets a new look plus expanded content. The site is also teaming up with two of the leading international firms in the travel sector: Lonely Planet and Trip Advisor.
The best exhibition in Berlin? The Diane Arbus show. The coolest street in Reykjavik? Geirsgata. Best cafe or bar for sunsets over New York? The terrace at The Ides at the Wythe Hotel. Our network of 70 city guides keeps track of what’s on in all the major world capitals. From Shanghai to New York and Nairobi to Barcelona, these urban explorers catch all the latest trends (new restaurants, hotels, shops, bars, museums, cultural centers ...), city walks, hip streets and neighborhoods, new architecture and design, environmental initiatives, and the people, places and patterns that define a city.
The list of contributors includes many of our usual El País reporters and professionals from other fields who share a love for their city. The Viajero takes you to big cities like Paris, London, Buenos Aires, Madrid, Moscow and Berlin, plus cities such as Bologna, Quito, Phnom Peng, Seville and Marrakesh.
The Viajero is also launching an online content partnership with Lonely Planet and Trip Advisor, two of the world’s most influential travel websites. Our ongoing partnership with the magazine Monocle, since last year, has already seen its content published in El Viajero. The Viajero online has also had a revamp, getting a clean new look that is more practical and easier to navigate, and a search engine that will bring readers all the archive stories so they can plan their trips.
The 70 new urban travelers will also be offering readers a basic guide to sights, hotels and restaurants, as well as tips on how to live like a local.
