The Legacy Lives On
“The Thaiger has grown from around 200,000 page views per month when we first took it over, to 12 million+, every month. All this has happened over two years.”
The Phuket Gazette was the island’s legacy media since 1993, the first island newspaper. It was owned, managed and nurtured for the entire time by island long-termer John Magee. Although the newspaper closed its long-running print run in April 2017, the digital assets of the website, social media pages and YouTube live on under new management of The Thaiger Pte Ltd.
The Thaiger started in Phuket in October 2016, initially as a new FM radio station for the island. The Thaiger Pte Ltd is now registered in Singapore and provides Thailand with the next generation of media – news, lifestyle, restaurant reviews, Top Tens, travel info, free classifieds and the best property portal in the country, not to mention a world-class medical tourism booking platform and jobs portal in English and Thai.
Thaiger News is shorter, to-the-point, mobile-first, accurate and timely. Not only do we get you the main news stories first, we also update them more often. Additionally we have a huge resource of information articles about Thailand and the region.
The Thaiger added Vietnamese language news in September 2019 and will be adding more native language news services for the region soon.
Initially based in Phuket, The Thaiger is now a Thaila and regional portal providing a daily one-stop-shop for news, information and lifestyle.
