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