The Modern Manila Issue
OutThere – The Modern Manila Issue
Printed in Belgium
The Modern Manila Issue uncovers the experiential capital of the Philippines – introducing OutThere Manileños – world-renowned actor Jake Macapagal and fashion photographer BJ Pascual, our featured men of distinction, among many other fantastic voices. They are proud to take us on an awe-inspiring journey of the city they call home. A visit to Manila will make you understand what it means to be a ‘global citizen’, it’s a place where a new breed of Filipinos are driving their city out of the backwaters. Join us on this journey and you’ll find out why Asia’s most underated city will soon become its most ‘Out There’.
In our other experiential sections, we take you on a journey to another ‘Pearl of the Orient’ – Penang, Malaysia on a personal, ancestral voyage of discovery. And ‘discovery’ is a big theme for our ‘Topography’ section – with stories on lesser-visited Sri Lanka and the fulfillment of American cowboy fantasies in Graham, Texas. Plus, we define luxury that goes the extra mile in our ‘Benchmark’ section, feature the passions of travel industry leaders in ‘Journeymen’, try and test luxury hotels and resorts in ‘Basecamp’ and show you how to be part of the ‘Smart Travel’ movement in our all new ‘Equipment’ section.
