Look up a world map of time zones. They definitely do not match up with perfect vertical lines going east and west. Putting a region into a certain time zone is based on a lot of different things, including both latitude and longitude and what time zone the neighboring regions are in. All of China is in one time zone, which confuses things a bit as China is huge. It is GMT + 8. Immediately to the east of China is Japan, which is GMT +9 along with Korea. Directly north from China is Mongolia and Krasnoyarsk, which are in the same time zone (+8). To the east is Irkutsk which is in the same time zone as Japan (+9). Yakutsk gets pushed to GMT +10, which is the same time zone as the northeast coast of Australia (southeast is +11). And then Vladivostok is GMT +11, even though it is more or less directly north from Japan. There are many similar examples, though Vladivostok's is probably the most extreme. But, look at Australia, where if it's 8:00 in Adelaide that means it is 7:30 in Brisbane.

I've been following Guangzhou ever since they started building that TV Tower a couple years ago...very respectable city indeed, even if Shanghai Tower will be taller.
