Wuhan
WUHAN ( ( listen )) is the capital of Hubei province, China, and is the most populous city in Central China . It lies in the eastern Jianghan Plain at the intersection of the middle reaches of the Yangtze and Han rivers. Arising out of the conglomeration of three cities, Wuchang , Hankou , and Hanyang , Wuhan is known as "Jiusheng Tongqu (the nine provinces' leading thoroughfare)"; it is a major transportation hub, with dozens of railways, roads and expressways passing through the city and connecting to other major cities. Because of its key role in domestic transportation, Wuhan was sometimes referred to as "the Chicago of China" by foreign sources. Holding sub-provincial status, Wuhan is recognized as the political, economic, financial, cultural, educational and transportation center of central China. The city of Wuhan, first termed as such in 1927, has a population of 10,607,700 people as of 2015 . In the 1920s, Wuhan was the national capital of a leftist Kuomintang (KMT) government led by Wang Jingwei in opposition to Chiang Kai-shek , as well as wartime capital in 1937. At the 2010 census, its built-up (_or metro_) area made of 8 out of 10 urban districts (_all but Xinzhou and Hannan not yet conurbated_) was home to 8,821,658 inhabitants

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

China Standard Time
The TIME IN CHINA follows a single standard time offset of UTC+08:00 (eight hours ahead of Coordinated Universal Time ), despite China spanning five geographical time zones . The official national standard time is called _ Beijing Time_ (Chinese : 北京时间) domestically and _ China Standard Time_ (CST) internationally. Daylight saving time has not been observed since 1991. The special administrative regions (SARs) maintain their own time authorities, with standards called _ Hong Kong Time _ (香港時間) and _ Macau Standard Time_ (澳門標準時間). These have been equivalent to Beijing time since 1992. In addition, a second time standard is used in Xinjiang , two hours less than the Beijing Time (UTC+06:00 ), which is called _Ürümqi Time_ (乌鲁木齐时间) or _ Xinjiang Time_ (新疆时间).
