Time in Indonesia
The exact time in Indonesia is based on the time zones for Indonesia. We will always try to give you the exact time for Indonesia. There might be slight differences, since the time zones for Indonesia might change due to daylight savings time (DST).
Time changes in Indonesia 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 Indonesia, and falls back one hour in the fall for Indonesia. Adding an extra hour of daylight helps Indonesia to improve its tourism and depend less on Indonesia's electricity supplies.
