Okay - not quite five years but the July 2011 edition, and other editions, of Traversing The Orient magazine is currently on sale at Kinokuniya in Siam Paragon, Bangkok for just 20 baht.
The magazine is part of the bookshops sale, and although the magazine is no longer being printed (which begs the question where will the money go from anyone who buys this copy) this magazine does have an interesting back story.
Originally named Thailand Time Out (TTO) the Bangkok Bugle understands that it was forced to drop the Time Out part of its title following a legal dispute - despite the fact that Thailand does not (yet) have a licensed Time Out edition of its own.
Quite why anyone, apart from magazine junkies like me, would want to buy a magazine of this age is beyond me - even at just 20 baht.
What's also quite interesting is a quick glance through the pages revealed a number of property projects that never made it out of the ground.
