Readership includes our mobile and online editions, allowing our readers to stay connected to Exotiq at all times, and provide our advertisers and sponsors access to this valuable market 365 days a year. Furthermore, focused promotional campaigns with sponsors from the travel and hospitality industries will drive readership and  broaden the reach of Exotiq Thailand from thousands to hundreds of thousands.

Our large format coffee table style magazine sits in the one place where travellers have the time to read and digest a magazine properly: inside their private bedroom and lounge. In this environment, they are in relaxed mode and removed from the distractions of their everyday routine. These are perfect moments for quality brands to reach and engage with a quality audience when they have the time, the focus, and the mindset to respond.

Tap into the minds of the most affluent consumers travelling in and around Thailand.
