Today, I've heard in a radio program that, even though China spans over eight different time zones, it uses a single time for the entire country. This causes the westernmost regions of China to have sunrise as late as around 11 am. Is this true?
If yes, then when do offices (and shops etc.) open in Tibet and other westernmost regions? Are they:
- open during "regular" hours, as in other countries (i.e. 8-9 am and thus in easternmost parts of China they're open very late at night) or
- open "near" sunrise (meaning that they open around 11 am)?
