Yup ! Just one ; Beijing Standard time.
China used to have five, but, in 1949, the Communist Party leadership
decided to use a single time zone, and it's been that way ever since.
China, a country that is of roughly similar size to the continental United States, has one time zone: Beijing Standard Time. This means that when it's 6 o'clock in the nation's capital, it's 6 o'clock almost 3,000 miles further west, in Kashgar.
