Time Zones in China

Although China spans over 4000 miles, there is one standard timezone (GMT + 8 hrs) which is 2 hours behind Australia’s EST. There is no Daylight Saving in China so this should be taken into account when calculating the time difference.

Electricity in China is 220 volts/50hz and most Australian devices will work safely, however always check the voltage information on your devices to ensure they accept 220V to avoid damage. European, North America and Australia plugs are usually supported, however it is advisable to buy an appropriate adaptor before you leave home.
