Time in Hong Kong
The exact time in Hong Kong is based on the time zones for Hong Kong. We will always try to give you the exact time for Hong Kong. There might be slight differences, since the time zones for Hong Kong might change due to daylight savings time (DST).
Time changes in Hong Kong are usually done to adapt citizen and tourist activity to the solar cycle. This allows for greater usage of daylight, reducing dependency on electricity. That is why the time is sent ahead one hour in the spring for Hong Kong, and falls back one hour in the fall for Hong Kong. Adding an extra hour of daylight helps Hong Kong to improve its tourism and depend less on Hong Kong's electricity supplies.
