China standard time or Beijing time is the time zone observed in the People's Republic of Chinamarker (PRC) mainland. It is eight hours ahead of UTC (UTC+8).

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.

The People's Republic of Chinamarker observed daylight saving time from 1986 to 1991, but no longer does.

Other time zones in the PRC mainland

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.
