When you stop and try to view places at a much different angle, you will come to realize that there is beauty within the dull streets of Metro Manila. And these areas scattered all around the city are worth seeking out for your best selfies and wefies!

Travel around the Metro and find these unique places to take your selfie because no matter where you are and when you take it, your selfies and your wefies can make someone smile.

Poblacion, Makati

Riverdale-inspired shots are the newest craze today, and the hip and happening neighborhood of Poblacion is the best place to go to have one. Surrounded by bright, aesthetic neon signs, this vibrant red light district will provide you with a stunning background for your fierce late night selfies or wefies with the gang.

Try exploring Bonifacio Global City to discover all its art murals decorating bare building walls that bring more life to this bustling commercial neighborhood. Not only will you get to appreciate local talent and alter your perspective on street art, but you’re guaranteed to also have artsy Instagram selfies and wefies!


The Alley at Karrivin

The Alley at Karrivin is your secret escape from the hustle and bustle of the Metro. It’s a chic lifestyle hub located along Chino Roces Extension which holds a number of hip, artsy, and Instagrammable establishments, plus an open green space where you can hide away for total peace and quiet. You’ll be posing everywhere for an OOTD shot or a besties or couple photo at this place!

This obscure hang out spot is the place to be for all things underground. Its novelty and vintage shops, indie gigs, and hole-in-the-wall restaurants give off a unique and artsy vibe which is greatly captured on camera. Show off to your friends where you are on a weekend night with a hipster or lightly buzzed selfie or wefie with newfound acquaintances here at Cubao Expo.

UP Diliman

UP Diliman’s lush greenery is an amazing backdrop for your #fresh selfies and wefies. Hang around the Sunken Garden or along University Avenue to take the best shots of you chillaxing under the afternoon sun!

Pro-tip: Visit during Graduation Season when the University Avenue is filled with bright sunflowers. You’re guaranteed to produce amazing shots there!

Escolta is a neighborhood still stuck in time. The remnants of Manila’s past are sights to behold for the urban wanderer, and it would take an unusual amount of restraint to stop yourself from taking a selfie or an artsy squad wefie against the backdrop of Art Deco, Beaux Arts, and Neoclassical buildings.


Venice Grand Canal

Heading to Venice Grand Canal will feel like you’ve taken a trip to one of Italy’s most romantic cities. Take a selfie or a couple wefie against the colorful walls that mimic Italian shophouses, or while cruising along the canal during a lazy afternoon.


Firefly Roofdeck Bar

Overlooking the Metro skyline, this rooftop bar — undoubtedly one of the city’s best — is where you get to witness the city being bathed in the warm glow of the sunset, and light up almost instantly as the night falls.

This kind of breathtaking view calls for one of two things, or even both: a selfie and a wefie! Take amazing shots of yourself alone and with your loved ones, with the sun setting in the background, or against the illuminated skyline!


Finding a place to take your best selfies isn’t so difficult to do, especially when you have a smartphone that ensures you have the perfect photo to share with all your friends! The ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro and ZenFone 4 Selfie are definite must-haves for a variety of reasons:

Both ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro and ZenFone 4 Selfie are designed with the best beautification technology the world can offer — the SelfieMaster, the first ever beautification application that allows you to look your very best no matter the time and place. Whether you’re taking a photo, shooting a video, or going on Livestream, the SelfieMaster is complete with tools like filters, collages, and slideshows that will help you out with your selfie-wefie needs!

On top of that, the ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro is the phone to have, especially with that sweet 24MP DuoPixel™ dual lens selfie camera — great for capturing your solo adventures and all kinds of wefies with your family and friends! With its Sony flagship IMX 362, 2x light sensitivity and soft light LED flash, you, your family and your friends are guaranteed to look fresh and fabulous always.

The Zenfone 4 Selfie, too, gives you the ultimate selfie and wefie experience. With its 20MP dual selfie camera and soft light LED flash, you and everyone in-frame are sure to look your best all the time — whatever shot you take!

What’s more is that, with the ASUS x Operation Smile partnership, every selfie you take and upload with the hashtag “#4theSmile” with any of its Zenfone 4 series smartphones will mean an automatic donation to sponsor Operation Smile’s medical mission.
