Despite the fact that Angkor Thom is registered at the Ministry of Information with a circulation of 5,000 copies, it claims to have a regular circulation up to 35,000 copies per issue, over 85% of which are distributed nationwide, while the rest is distributed overseas (including the United States, Canada, France, Australia, New Zealand, Korea, Thailand, and Vietnam). While it mainly focuses on entertainment news, Angkor Thom also covers other various news aspects such as economic issues, arts & culture, sports, health & beauty, education, science and technology, both local and international. It does however not cover politically sensitive issues.

Angkor Thom has three affiliated media outlets:

  • The biweekly magazine Dara, which has been launched in 2005 and claims to have the same circulation of Angkor Thom,
  • Angkor Thom Media website
  • Nokor Thom daily newspaper
