Boudyro: China's system sounds way more intelligent.Can't we just behave like an advanced civilization and do away with time zones completely?Anyone who needs to operate in daylight just continues to do so, who gives a fark what time the clock says in regards to that?
tricycleracer: Cythraul: Why China no like time zones? Why?!I learned something today.A country like China, which is really wide, should in theory, have 3 time zones but the government of China has chosen to have the whole country in the same time zone similar to Malaysia.If you compare the sunrise and sunset information for Shanghai, which is located in the eastern part of China, to the sunrise and sunset information for Lhasa (Tibet), located in the most western part of China, then you will see there is a huge difference. Sunrise in Shanghai might be at 6:30 AM while sunrise in Lhasa will be probably closer to 9 AM. Meanwhile, sunset in Shanghai will be around 5:30 PM and sunset in Lhasa will be at around 7:30 PM. Yet, both cities share the same time as do all cities within China.
