The Local's Guide

Agency Network: 
December 2013


Get the real picture with this live guide made entirely from the local’s instagrams. Food pictures from restaurants and selfies from a night out might not be the most interesting stuff in your Instagram feed. But for tourist, they can be the best thing ever. The Local’s Guide by Stockholm Arlanda Airport lets you explore the Instagram feeds of whole cities in real time, and save the places you find interesting as an offline guide. The mobile site is basically geographical searches of open Instagram accounts, with an algorithm created to show the perfect mix between popular, hight rated places and the random stuff you wouldn’t find in any other guide. Regardless if it’s a bar, museum or a beautiful view. One of the main objectives is to make the time travelers have to wait at the gates more inspiring. At Arlanda Airport, run by Swedavia Swedish Airports, The Local’s Guide is shown on interactive installations where travelers can get the honest, real time view of what’s going on at the destination, right before boarding. And through the mobile site, travelers can save their favourites as an offline PDF with maps and addresses to avoid expensive roaming. No reviews, no star based recommendations. Just what the locals are up to right now.
