The 3 cities of Mark Tungate

Visitamos las ciudades preferidas de Mark Tungate, nuestro Global Nomad polifacético apasionado por la escritura y la fotografía de sus viajes. Para este verano nos recomienda tres ciudades: París, Penang y Seúl.

París, siempre París. Es mi hogar elegido y sigue siendo mi ciudad favorita a pesar de los turistas y la gente de mal humor.” Nuestro viaje no podía empezar en otro lugar, la residencia de Tungate es la ciudad de las luces; un lugar perfecto donde escribir e inspirarse alrededor de sus calles. Escogemos pasear por el Sena, el eje de la capital francesa que nos permite recorrer la ciudad desde la Tour Eiffel hasta Notre Damme pasando por el Pont Alexandre III, los Jardins des Tuileries o el Musée d’Orsay a través de sus puentes.

“Adoro Penang, hablé con algunos estudiantes asiáticos y parecían mucho más optimistas que los europeos. Quizás saben que son el futuro.” Si tenemos que escoger una ciudad de la isla de Penang no podemos dudar, George Town es el punto de partida de cualquier recorrido por la isla. La capital de Penang, fundada en el siglo XVIII, es una ciudad de contrastes donde oriente y occidente se unen vinculando pasado y presente. ¿Un lugar para conocer de cerca a los malasios? La mansión de Cheong Fatt Tze, un edificio arquitectónico de finales del siglo XIX que actualizó las claves de la arquitectura oriental mirando hacia el estilo Europeo.

Seúl es limpia, vívida y futurista. Está llena de gente guapa y bien vestida que se divierten y trabajan muy duro” La capital de Corea del Sur es una gran metrópolis que se renueva constantemente. Las grandes avenidas y rascacielos han configurado el skyline de una ciudad que no para ni un segundo. Para descansar el ritmo frenético de los coreanos, nuestra recomendación es visitar el Santuario de Chongmyo, el templo confucionista más antiguo conservado y declarado Patrimonio de la Humanidad por la Unesco el 1995. Un lugar donde descubrir el origen de la sociedad y pensamiento de la sociedad coreana.We visit the favorite cities of Mark Tungate, our versatile Global Nomad and writing and travel photography lover. For this summer, he recommends three cities: Paris, Penang and Seoul.

Paris, always Paris. My chosen home and still my favorite city, despite all the tourists and moody locals.” Our journey couldn’t start in any other place than this one; the residence of Tungace is the city of lights. A perfect place to write and to be inspired around its streets .We choose to walk by the Sena river, the main artery of the French capital that allows us to travel around the city. From the Eiffel Tower, through Pont Alexandre III, the Tuileries garden or the Musée d’Orsay through its bridges, to the Notre Damme.

I loved Penang. I spoke to quite a few students in Asia and the seemed so much more optimistic than Europeans. Perhaps they know that they are the future.” If we have to choose a city of the Penang island we have no doubts that we would choose George Town. It is the start point of any route of the island. The capital of Penang, founded in the XVIII century, is a city of contrasts where East and West are joint linking the past with the present. Do you want to know a place to know closely the Malaysians? The mansion of Cheon Fatt Tze, an architectural construction built at the end of the XIX century that updated the oriental architecture to a more European style.

Seoul is a clean, vivid and futuristic city, full of well-dressed, good-looking people who work and play very hard.” The capital of South Korea is a big metropolis that is constantly being renovated. The great avenues and skyscrapers have set up the skyline of the city that can’t stop moving. To rest from this frenetic pace, our suggestion is to visit the Chongmyo sanctuary: the oldest Confucian temple conserved and declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1995. A place to discover the background and origins of the society and thoughts of the Korean society.We visit the favorite cities of Mark Tungate, our versatile Global Nomad and writing and travel photography lover.
