China standard time
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Certain regions of eastern Asia, including Greater China, also observe time zones which have the same offset, but use different names, such as Chungyuan Standard Time, Hong Kong Time, Macao Standard Time, Philippine Standard Time, Singapore Standard Time, etc.
Other time zones in mainland China
Although the only official time zone in the PRC is Beijing Time, the People's Congress of Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region, due to its geographical location in the westernmost part of the country, proclaimed Ürümqi Time (UTC+6), two hours behind Beijing. Although this is not officially recognised, it is the time observed locally by most residents.
