Time Zone Map of Asia | Asia Current Time Zones Map

Time is always different in various places on the planet.  The reason for this is that scientists divide the Earth into different time zones. Within each time zone, people need to set their clock for the same time. When someone is traveling by plane between two time zones, he or she will adjust his/her clock to the one used in the new zone.

The Time Zone Map of Asia shows the time zone divisions observed on the Asian continent including outlying islands. Many standard time zones are indicated by different colors on the Asia time zone map.
