Island Groups Of The Philippines
The GEOGRAPHICAL DIVISIONS OF THE PHILIPPINES are the three island groups of Luzon , Visayas , and Mindanao . Luzon and Mindanao are both named after the largest island in their respective groups, while the Visayas (also the Visayan Islands) is an archipelago. CONTENTS * 1 Administrative divisions * 2 Islands * 3 See also * 4 References ADMINISTRATIVE DIVISIONSIslands are organized into three distinct island group according to regions : Regions I to V , CAR , and NCR are for Luzon, Regions VI to VIII and NIR are for the Visayas, and Regions IX to XIII and ARMM are for Mindanao. If a province is reassigned into a new region, it can also be reassigned to a new island group, as is the case with Palawan , when it was reassigned to MIMAROPA . The island groups themselves do not have governments of their own, but are instead divided into provinces, cities , municipalities and barangays , which do have their own local governments. Although the island groups do not have local governments, hence capitals , certain cities have become the political, economic and cultural centers of the island groups. Manila is the national capital and is the de facto capital of Luzon, though neighbouring Quezon City , a former capital, has more inhabitants than Manila. Cebu , on the province and island of the same name, is the chief city of the Visayas

Time Zone
A TIME ZONE is a region of the globe that observes a uniform standard time for legal, commercial, and social purposes. Timezones tend to follow the boundaries of countries and their subdivisions because it is convenient for areas in close commercial or other communication to keep the same time. Most of the time zones on land are offset from Coordinated Universal Time(UTC) by a whole number of hours ( UTC−12to UTC+14), but a few zones are offset by 30 or 45 minutes (for example Newfoundland Standard Timeis UTC−03:30, NepalStandard Timeis UTC+05:45, and Indian Standard Timeis UTC+05:30). Some higher latitude and temperate zone countries use daylight saving time for part of the year, typically by adjusting local clock time by an hour. Many land time zones are skewed toward the west of the corresponding nautical time zones . This also creates a permanent daylight saving time effect
