You live in California and you would like to know what time it is in Beijing China?

There is normally a 16 hour time difference between California and China. Example: 6 AM Thursday in California = 10 PM Thursday in China. Example: 9 AM Thursday in Caifornia = 1 AM Friday in China. Both California and China observe Daylight Saving Time {DST}, but begin and end on different days, usually a few weeks apart. If you need to know about the time difference on a specific day of the year then first check when each location changes into/out-of DST. Otherwise, you are "normally" okay to plan on that 16 hour time difference.
