Khmer Times aims to bring its readers the latest news from Cambodia, the region and the world in print and digital formats and report that news in an unbiased manner.
Before Khmer Times came along the English-language news in Cambodia was dominated by two outlets for the past two decades and we think it’s time for a change, a change that brings a fresh perspective to the way events are reported in this country.
We publish five days a week, from Monday to Friday, while our website is updated not only daily, but as news breaks. The readership of our website is growing by the day and stories from our website are now being regularly re-posted on the Bangkok Post and other papers around the region. Our aim is to bring the latest news to our readers from a neutral stance, as good journalism should be.
Writers with opinions to express are also welcome and are published daily on our Opinion and Analysis pages. We do not take sides on any issues and will publish the opinions of people on all sides of politics, business, social issues or hard news.
Khmer Times also caters to the large young population in Cambodia with our weekly Youth Today section, as well as our Weekly section with features on a wide variety of topics, wining and dining and the popular entertainment guide.
Our business section is the market leader, and our daily business pages carry not only the latest news, but also weekly updates on the Kingdom’s property sector, one of the fastest growing in the region.
It is up to the readers to make up their minds, and the better informed they are from an unbiased point of view, the easier it becomes for them to decide which way to lean on issues. We also listen to our readers and publish Letters to the Editor on a variety of subjects, to give readers a chance to have their say.
We have a highly experienced team of journalists and photographers – many of them international award-winners – who have spent many years covering events in Cambodia, the region and the world.
Khmer Times is also unique among the English-language print media in Cambodia because of the way we gather the news and report on it. We have a team of very experienced local journalists gathering the news on a daily basis and writing about it. Nobody knows a country better than the people from that country.
Our small team of talented foreign journalists work as both editors, writers and photographers and help put a foreign perspective on stories when needed. Using local reporters to gather and write news is a new concept for English-language newspapers in Cambodia, but not around the region, where all the papers use the same concept.
We also have a very popular and well-read Khmer-language section inserted in every edition of Khmer Times and that will soon expand and as we grow the Khmer-language section will eventually become a separate publication in its own right.
We are a truly independent newspaper using the best and most experienced local journalists and photographers there are with the aim of bringing our readers the best, and sometimes worst, news, business, opinions, features and sport.
