Have you ever wondered what it's like to be part of the SUITCASE Magazine team? We're constantly uncovering new destinations, meeting new faces from across the globe and suffering from jet-lag. Where do we travel? Why do we go there? And how do we source the best information for you, our readers?
Through Viber public chats we've been able to give our readers real insight into how we work and travel. It's essentially a group chat between the members of SUITCASE which you can follow and view - think of it like our own version of a reality TV show with conversations, photos and videos so you're with us every step of the way. We now have over 65,000 followers, making Viber our biggest social media platform yet. And we don't plan to stop there.
Our first project with Viber is tied up with our three shiny new city guides to Paris, London and New York. Our recommendations for what to do and where to stay, eat, shop, drink and dance have been curated with the help of some of the most in-the-know people in town.
This video series brings our New York city guide to life by filming five New Yorkers in their favourite corners of the city. There's Lyon Porter, hotelier and owner of the Urban Cowboy BnB in South Williamsburg, Brooklyn; Alissa and Sabrina from cult dining spot Dimes; Lauren Singer of Trash is for Tossers showing us eco-friendly activities in the city; Kai Avent-deLeon, owner of the chicest boutique in Bed-Stuy and Kitty Cash at her favourite bar in Brooklyn, Ode to Babel. We'll be releasing the videos here and interviewing them for more tips and stories on our Viber Public Chat every week so stay tuned.
First, meet our founder and CEO Serena Guen. She's the reason we're all here after all….
