São Tomé and Príncipe Returns to GMT
The African island nation São Tomé and Príncipe has changed its local time back again to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) after switching to West African Time (WAT) a year earlier.
1 Hour Back
Last year, on January 1, 2018, São Tomé and Príncipe changed time zones to West African Time (WAT), which is 1 hour ahead of UTC.
Close to Solar Time
No Daylight Saving Time
Many countries around the world change their clocks for Daylight Saving Time (DST) for parts of the year, but not São Tomé and Príncipe. Seasonal clock changes are fairly meaningless in the tropics, where day lengths hardly vary during the year.
