Singapore Daylight Saving Time (DST)

Singapore is not using Daylight Saving Time.


Singapore uses Singapore Time SGT. SGT is UTC +0800. Singapore’s latitude and longitude is 1° 21' N and 103° 49' E. Considering its longitude time in Singapore should be seven hours ahead of UTC instead of eight. As a result Singapore has a late sunrise. Because Singapore has a very low latitude there is no use in observing daylight savings time.
