DER FARANG introduces itself

As a German-language magazine established in Thailand since 1993, the magazine and news portal DER FARANG presents itself as an ideal advertising partner. Around 185 customers from 65 branches in Thailand, Germany, Austria and Switzerland use our publication.

DER FARANG is the largest German-language magazine in Thailand for tourists, expats and residents. The 60-page print edition offers its readers a colourful mix of information and entertainment every 14 days. In addition to a Thailand-wide reporting with a focus on travel topics, seasonal events and sights, each issue contains a refreshing variety of international news, background information, exciting reports, practical travel tips, entertaining columns, interviews, portraits, company presentations, valuable event information and current sports news. These also include a locally oriented crossword puzzle, jokes, poems and book presentations.

The advertisement section is just as interesting for all readers as the editorial section. Whether you are looking for a suitable hotel, a property, a new air conditioning system, the best dentist, a soothing massage, a good language school or a trendy restaurant, a glance at the ad pages will quickly provide you with information. Where else would you place your ad more accurately and promisingly than in this environment?

We bring the world closer to our readers. Our online readership is informed almost around the clock with news and breaking news about important events from Thailand and the whole world. Thailand's time advantage over Europe gives us a clear plus. Our event calendar is an important information component for our readers. Here, not only holidays and festivals are announced, but the reader also finds out which events related to Thailand take place when and where. In the daily news portal, the articles from the printed edition appear bit by bit, whereas reports are reserved exclusively for our subscribers and advertisers. Our extensive article archive since the founding years is available to our subscribers. The popular reader comment service and classified ad market round off the service. Our news portal DER FARANG can be read via all common Internet browsers. The layout has been optimized for mobile use and is particularly reader-friendly.

You choose! Whether online advertising, in the news newsletter, in print or in PDF, our articles and reports are carefully prepared for our readership several times a day. We are aware of our responsibility - your advertising is in good hands with DER FARANG.

We would be happy to invite you to a meeting to prepare your advertising as individually as possible.
You are welcome to make an appointment with Martin Rueegsegger, our managing director, or contact him directly via Mobile/WhatsApp at +66 (0)81 252 1842.
