  1. M2F is a newspaper, daily on weekdays mo-fr and distributed at most major busstops. In fact owned by the BKK-post.
    BK mag is very good and also very hard to get/find- they seem to change their pints all the time I get back.

    1. Yes, title should have been "printed matter" to include newspaper and event calendar. I get BK magazine from Goethe Institute, but you can probably get the information from their website or app as well.
