Asian Times

Asia Times Online (abbreviated as ATol) is a Hong Kong/Thailand-based bilingual EnglishChinese, Internet-based newspaper covering geopolitics, politics, economics, and business "from an Asian perspective".[1] Asia Times Online was created in 1999 and sees itself as the successor to Sondhi Limthongkul's Asia Times that closed in 1997.[1]


Asia Times Online was created early in 1999 as a successor in "publication policy and editorial outlook" to the Hong Kong/Bangkok-based daily printed newspaper Asia Times, owned by Thai media mogul and leader of the People's Alliance for Democracy Sondhi Limthongkul, that closed in mid-1997,[1] a week before the devaluation of Thailand's baht kicked off the Asian financial crisis. Asia Times Online is incorporated and registered in Hong Kong[1] and is owned by Sondhi Limthongkul.[2] Its revenues come from advertisements, an advertisement-free subscription service, and from selling content.[1]


Asia Times Online averages 90,000 unique readers every day and is one of Asia's most popular news sites. The New York Times described Asia Times Online as "one of the most prominent of the [English-language] regional publications" covering Asia.[2]
