Welcome to Curious Philippines!

The proud sunset view of Manila Bay.

A dependable shot of romance if you want to escape the hustle and bustle of Manila.


Curious Philippines is a platform for getting to know the Southeast Asian jewel, the Philippines, and its 7,000+ islands.  It is a photo archive that seeks to map trends, patterns and stories of Filipino heritage, as they are discovered first hand.

Curious Philippines is developed with contributions from artists and friends.  It serves as a challenge and an aid to Filipino artist Mae Aguinaldo in getting to know the islands of her home country.
