Recommended Posts

There is a New Magazine being Published in Chiangrai! It's 100% English and will be on the stands between, Aug 1st-15th throughout Chiangrai, Chiangmai and Pattaya. The Magazine is looking for fresh Fresh articles for Chiangrai so if you would like to write an article please feel free to send it //email removed//

Communithai Magazines first issue will be out in the beginning of August distributing 5000 copies of which 3000 copies will be distributed throughout Chiangrai. This is a free Magazine supported by Local Business.

The first issue will feature the top 10 Restaurants in Chiangrai, Local NGO's and what there doing. A few funny articles like my Thai wife?, information on Tap Sap 600 english words used by Thai and intesting fact on and or about Chiangrai.

Communithai Magazine is interested in personal stories about your experiences in Chiangrai and articles promoting the wounderful life style Chiangrai has to offer.

The Magazine is Non Political and not a platform for Religion! it if a lifestyles Magazine for Chiangrai.

Communithai is also developing a local Community Center in Bandu Chiangrai to better serve the Expat community. Soon to offer DVD Exchange, Book Exchange, Teaching Material exchange and more. We feel that there are many Expats living in Chiangrai that have a lot to offer fellow expats, but due to lack of any media or information system they cannot share there knowledge.

Communithai is also preparing to launch it's web based community portal that will help bring people together.

So you asked what is Communithai Magazine about? Well it's about Chiangrai and all the wounderful people and the Business Community.

Thank you

Thank you for the explanation, pity it took so long.

Some good ideas there but do you know that Bandu is not even in Chiang Rai city and for most foreigners it will be too far.

Imagine going to Bandu to get a DVD or a book, I don't think so.

Anyhow,good luck. I think everyone would like to see it up and running.

:o Thank you all your negative and positve support for the magazine.

For all of you who think a glass is half empty or like to spend most of your time in thailand complaining, crying in your TomYum or Thai bashing Please take a pill!

Whoa........Touchy, ain't you.

Listen mate, you're the one that has to grow up.

You're the guy that posted about a new magazine coming to Chiang Rai and therefore invited reaction to it, positive and negative.

Your original lack of explanation invited critism.

I really fear for the future for your enterprise when you fail to take advice or critism at this very early stage and knock the people giving it.

Mostly, on this webpage you will find very helpful, considerate people who will, at no expense share their many years of experience.

Take it and don't be a grouch.

In spite of your reaction, you will find most people are interested in what you are doing and will be supportive .

Now.Please stop taking the pills.

I think the poster was stating the facts rather than being a critic.

Thai bashing..... wow i hope you are referring to verbal bashing?

As for your thai bashing comments yes a lot of people do "Thai bash" but most of them would do it in their own countries. ######s cant drive. She is so lazy etc.. It happens everywhere. The fact is we are surrounded by thai people so people who piss us off are generally Thais. Why? Because we are in Thailand. If we were in Japan who would piss us off? yes Japanese. I bet the Thai would whinge about the English if they lived there.The people who whinge about Thais would and do I am sure whinge everyday about something even in there home countries.

I do hope this magazine goes well for you and I look forward to reading it when it comes out.

Have you tried to read the posts in this topic? Did you understand them? Are you the one going to edit the new magazine? Maybe you are going to write some articles yourself, maybe to tell us that know nothing about how it really is!

I am looking forward to read the first issue.

Good luck!!

(Are you the one selling the ads for the new magazine?

Good luck again!! )

It's only 5 days until it's supposed to hit the news stands.

Any chance of providing the forum members with an advance copy?

Having spent the majority of my working life in the publishing (free newspapers/magazine) business all I can say is that I wish the owners of this venture the very best of luck.

It is never easy getting a new magazine off the ground, and even harder here.

I tried to copy here what had worked very well for me back home and it was a complete disaster.

My Company back in the UK was selling as many advertisements in a day than we were selling in Bangkok in a month. :o

Despite employing 8 University Graduates, fluent in English, most with sales backgrounds ..we just could not make it work.

I would be realy chuffed for these guys if they can get this off the ground :D

It takes a lot of hard work, guts and determination to succeed here in this particular industry..but it CAN be done..Publications like "The Big Chilli" in Bangkok and "Citylife" in Chiangmai have proved that.

But as another poster pointed out..I think the OP needs to consider that he may well need to support the magazine financially for at least 6 months to gain the advertiser's confidence... thats what I would have done if I could start over. My reaction was <deleted> 'em then..and I closed the company down and just concentrated my efforts on my UK operation which I sold a year later.

But maybee he has already decided to do this anyway

I found that Print costs were not vastly cheaper than in the UK (which I did not think would be the case), and advertiser's were not prepared to pay anything like UK prices, even for the same circulation numbers

So please bear in mind that if you can support this venture in any way ,then please do so, Chaingmai's Citylife is a "Must Read" magazine for me....and if this new mag is anywhere up to the same standard then you will have a very good informative magazine about the place in which you live. :D

PS...Forgive the OP if he rubbed a few of you up the wrong way...He just wants his business to work and is on a "Pink Cloud" right now that he has managed to get his first edition ready for publication..it will not have been easy I assure you, and probably the reason it took him a long time to respond to postings here...it was probably becuase he was working 24/7

Good Luck

TP

The first issue will feature the top 10 Restaurants in Chiangrai,

Looking forward to Tue, where can i get a copy?? If a good restaurant did not advertise with you, will you still list them in the top ten?? There has been a publication in Chiangmai for many years, and she will only recommend places to eat and stay only if they add with her. Hope you don't do the same. :o
