The Legacy Lives On

“The Thaiger has grown from around 170,000 page views per month when we first took it over in July 2017, to an average of 10-20 million page views, every month now.”

The Phuket Gazette was the island’s legacy media since 1993, the first island English-speaking newspaper. It was owned, managed and nurtured for the entire time by island long-termer John Magee. Although the newspaper closed its 23 year 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 and SE Asia with the next generation of media – news, lifestyle, restaurant reviews, Top Tens, travel info, free classifieds and much more.

Thaiger news is short, 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 about Thailand and the region.

The Thaiger separated its Thai-language news section in August 2020 to form the new Tadoo news and e-commerce brand.

The Thaiger now provides four Facebook pages, an English YouTube channel, Instagram and Twitter. The Thaiger also launched the Thaiger LIFE (expat and English-speaking services) and Thaiger LIVE (24/7 news streaming) products in September, 2020.

Initially based in Phuket, The Thaiger is now a Thailand and regional portal providing a daily one-stop-shop for news, information and lifestyle. The Thaiger’s main office is in Bangkok’s Asoke district.
