Phuket Gazette sets record with 108-page issue

Legacy Phuket Gazette




PHUKET: The Phuket Gazette hit the newsstands with a resounding thump today with a record-breaking 108 pages.

This week’s issue of the island’s leading English-language newspaper is packed with content, boasting the 32-page China Daily Asia Weekly, a world-class publication built in Hong Kong; the 16-page Russia Beyond The Headlines (RBTH), published by the renowned Moscow-based Rossiskaya Gazetta; and an eight-page ‘Phuket Luxury Living’ special to mark the Dubai Property Show, of which the Phuket Gazette and PGTV are proud sponsors.

The China Daily provides authoritative information, analysis and commentary with a focus on what could well be the most important long-term “issue” in the world today: China. This week’s issue takes an in-depth look at potential economic growth in Asia and the region’s emergence as a global powerhouse.

But the publication isn’t just about the world economic battles being played out in Asia; it also takes a dip into Vietnam’s Halong Bay and gives the taste buds a kick with Zhu Weijing’s look at “The Mistresses of the megastars”.

Like the China Daily, RBTH delivers insights into its host country’s relationships with Thailand and Asia. It also explores Russian culture, sports, business, overseas investment and tourism trends.

This week it delves into the hot topic of rising Russian arms exports to Asia-Pacific nations, and provides a Russian perspective on the Ukraine and the Crimea. However, it’s not all guns, money and conquest. Tucked into the pages is a quaint travel story taking readers to the remote Russian Buddhist region of Tuva and a look at how Russian patterns and style are gaining ground in the world’s fashion industry.

Finally, there is our Luxury Living Special, offering island residents perspectives on the villas, the cars, the bikes and the superyachts that make Phuket what it is today. The special features Bill Barnett’s look at the Minor Group’s 5-billion baht investment in Phuket.

Luxury Living comes out four days ahead of Dubai’s 10th International Property Show (IPS), which takes place April 8-10 at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Center and now boasts participation by 300 companies from 80 countries.

We hope you’ll enjoy this week’s record-breaking issue of the Gazette, and the multitude of perspectives it has been designed to put into the hands of our readers.
