The Manila Times is the oldest existing English language newspaper in the Philippines. It is published daily by The Manila Times Publishing Corp. with editorial and administrative offices at Bonifacio Drive, Port Area, Manila.

It was founded on October 11, 1898, shortly after news that the Treaty of Paris would be signed, ending the Spanish-American War and transferring the Philippines from Spanish to American sovereignty.[1] It presently bills itself as the fourth-largest newspaper in the Philippines in terms of circulation, beating the Manila Standard Today but still behind the Philippine Daily Inquirer, the Manila Bulletin and the Philippine Star.

The current publisher and editor-in-chief is Dante Francis "Klink" Ang II.
