Look / Tourist Ways magazine

Look / Tourist Ways magazine

From one side, it's "Tourist Ways - the only way for tourists", from the other side "Look - the only way for tourists". www.look-bkk.com

Two issues per month. I get mine from reception at Malaysia hotel and haven't seen this magazine anywhere else.

This magazine is in English from one side and in Japanese from the other side (with different contents, as far as I can tell). A lot of advertisement, and some articles about places of interest for tourists (however sometimes there is no article about the place on the cover). 

The larger size is from last year, this year's editions are smaller:


There is advertising for straight and gay massage places, quite interesting:


I wouldn't go out of my way to get my hands on a copy, but as I walk past Malaysia hotel at least once per week, I get a copy. Plenty of typos in the print version and on their website. Information about Bangkok and elsewhere in Thailand comparable to other advertising financed publications.

  1. Many years ago it was a larger magazine-but it was not redacted in TH, but in the Phillippines. All kind of articles are recycled and those adverts-with the very same ''models'' are at least 6-7 years old by now. Used to be spread in many hotels+tourist offices, but thats also long ago now.
    In fact there used to be many more of such free giveaway full ofadverts magazines, just like there still are a few for (our) gay scene.
