China Time

The time in China follows a single standard time offset of UTC+08:00 (eight hours ahead of Coordinated Universal Time), despite China spanning five geographical time zones. The official national standard time is called Beijing Time domestically and China Standard Time (CST) internationally. Daylight saving time has not been observed since 1991.

In China, they have only one time zone, GMT+8. This means that the time across the country is always 8 hours ahead of GMT (Greenwich Mean Time). This is known as Beijing Time, though it is the standard across all five different time zones that exist in China. This can sometimes create confusion in different parts of the country. In the West and East the sun may appear in different places but the official time calculation will be the same. Much like as if the entire United States ran on D.C. time, this affects people who live in the areas farthest from Beijing the most.
