Nectar & Pulse

Travel tips from in-the-know locals.

The idea behind the Nectar & Pulse travel guide company is pretty awesome: browse through bios of locals in the city you’re visiting. Select the “soulmates” you relate to most. Assemble a book with your soulmates’ recommendations for places to eat, shop and see while you’re in their hometown. It’s like getting the goods on a new city from your best friend, only in this case, your “best friend” is the buyer with the inside scoop on the latest sample sale, the photographer who makes you laugh uncontrollably, or the DJ who mixes mashups at the tiny club. Also, the site design is pretty dope.
