We’re exhilarated to launch the Coconuts Directory, a growing guide to the best Events and Venues in Bali, Bangkok, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, Jakarta, Manila, Singapore, and Yangon.
If you’ve been clicking around Coconuts lately, then you might have noticed that we’ve been soft launching the service in a few cities across our network. Today it’s fully up and running, connecting readers to the new, noteworthy spots and events popping up in their respective cities.
We decided to roll out our own in-house directory following the revamp of our Food, Lifestyle, and Travel sections, and the launch of Coco Food and Coco Travel, last year. Turns out a lot of you really care about where to find good Mexican food in your hood, weighing out your options for weekend activities, and the like — so we built the Coconuts Directory as a place where all of that useful information can live, for you to use and peruse as you see fit.
We’ve got a section for Venues and Events for every one of our eight Coconuts cities. Listings are submitted by Coconuts Users and approved and curated by the Coconuts Food, Lifestyle, and Travel editorial team. For the time being, the most recent submissions for each city get featured on the righthand side of all of our article pages.
So far most of our submissions have come from savvy business owners and eagle-eyed PR agencies.
But we’re ready to shout from the rooftops — Restaurateurs! Event organizers! Party people! The Coconuts Directory wants your news: art exhibits, food festivals, live music gigs, conferences, meet-ups, film nights for our Events pages — or business profiles of your bar, cafe, club, co-working space, hotel, or other space for our Venues pages.
