Wander is about savoring the best of cities can offer through the eyes if its locals. Celebrating popular establishments and well-loved small shops to seeking out wonderful surprises, we are on the lookout for rich and unique experiences. 

We share their secrets, suggestions, favorites, and present a way of life. Wander features beautiful maps, interesting facts, and insightful itineraries for a fun journey around the city.

This micro-guide focuses on one city or theme per quarter, giving you an in depth encounter with everything the city has to offer.

As a micro-guide, we zoom into what makes a particular place unique, choosing to tackle a smaller geographical scale. Our first issue, launched last June, focused on the city of Manila—celebrating its history, notable architecture, and neighborhood food and shopping favorites. We will soon release guides featuring other cities in Metro Manila such as Makati, San Juan, Pasig, Taguig, and will also venture outside the National Capitol Region.


Apart from approaching it from a geographical standpoint, we also plan to create micro guides on specific themes, such as art and design, food, shopping, and more. We are releasing our first Art and Design guide in February 2014, in time for Art Fair Philippines and to complement ManilaFAME in March.

Should the opportunity arise, we are also looking forward to creating customized guides based on a given brief. From a tailored guide for a boutique hotel to a walking map for an organization, the possibilities are endless.
