Samoa Daylight Saving Time (DST)
Samoa is not using Daylight Saving Time.
Samoa uses Western Samoa Time WST. WST is UTC +1300. Samoa's latitude and longitude is 13° 35 S and 172° 20 W . Therefore being thirteen hours ahead of UTC is too much for the islands. Being twelve hours ahead (or behind) UTC would be more suitable. However, there is no daylight savings time on Samoa. The Island is on daylight savings time all year round.
