About Us

Khmer Times, owned and published by Virtus Media Pte., Ltd., aims to bring its readers the latest news from Cambodia, the region and the world in print and digital formats, with the aim of reporting that news in an unbiased manner.

When Khmer Times started we felt English-language news in Cambodia needed a fresh perspective in the way events are reported in this country.

We publish five days a week, from Monday to Friday and our website is updated not only daily, but as news breaks. The readership of our website also grows daily and stories from our website are now regularly re-posted in media publications around the world, including with the Bangkok Post, Malay Mail Online, The Economist and The Sun. Our aim is to bring the latest news to our readers from a neutral stance.

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. We dare claim our hard-hitting insightful editorials and opinions are keenly followed by the government, lawmakers, diplomats and business people alike.

It is up to the readers to make up their minds and the better informed they are from an objective analysis, the easier it becomes for them to decide which way they lean. 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.

Khmer Times also caters to the large number of the young population in Cambodia, with our weekly Youth Today section that includes stories and features on a wide variety of topics that young people are interested in.

Our daily feature, or lifestyle pages, give the latest news on wining and dining and what entertainment or shows are on.

Our business section and our specialised business weekly, Capital Cambodia, are market leaders. 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.

We have a highly experienced team of journalists and photographers 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 news on a daily basis and writing about it. Nobody knows a country better than the people from it.

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 it is already practised.

We are an independent newspaper using the best and most experienced local journalists and photographers with the aim of bringing our readers the best, and sometimes worst, news, business, opinions, features and sport.
