Coconuts Manila Lifestyle

The Coconuts Manila lifestyle section is your unofficial guide to having fun in the country’s capital. Here’s where we try to give you sale alerts, gig guides, exhibit openings, theater schedules, and everything else this bustling city has to offer! Our lifestyle section is all about creating authentic, interesting, and relevant pieces that will keep you entertained while waiting for your Tinder date or while you’re stuck in a crazy traffic jam along EDSA. Get in touch with Manila’s creative side as we help you navigate your way through the city’s thriving art scene. Museums? Exhibits? Cool graffiti? Get to know more all about the works of up-and-coming artists right in this spot. Coconuts Manila’s writers love picking the brains of painters, photographers, sculptors, and just about anyone who creates beautiful stuff. A review of the newest musical in town? We have that. A schedule of the concerts happening around the area this year? We probably have that too. If you’re interested in LGBT+ issues, you’ll be happy to know that Coconuts Manila loves covering their advocacies and inspiring tales. Oh, we can’t talk lifestyle without talking about the rich and the famous, aka local celebrities. Who’s dating who? Who got involved in a recent online scandal? What’s the latest about the celebrity baby with the most number of followers on Instagram? We don’t always have the answers, but we’ll keep you entertained and interested. This is the spot if you want to relax, let loose, and get a taste of Manila’s culture and life.
