Hong Kong is not using Daylight Saving Time.
Hong Kong uses Hong Kong Time HKT. HKT is UTC +0800. Hong Kong’s latitude and longitude is 22° 14' N and 114° 9' E. Therefore an eight hour offset between HKT and UTC is not surprising. Because of its low latitude Hong Kong has little use for daylight savings time. Time in Hong Kong is relatively practical, especially for a region of China.
