I have made this simple thread explaining time zones and how to convert them as many people get confused about them, including myself so I thought it would be a good idea to create a thread on the subject.

What are time zones?

Time zone - A time zone is a region of the Earth that has adopted the same standard time, usually referred to as the local time. Most adjacent time zones are exactly one hour apart, and by convention compute their local time as an offset from UTC (see also Greenwich Mean Time).

Conversion Charts

This is probably the easiest chart (below in spoiler) out of the two I am going to post, simply because it is straight forward and easy to understand.

However, if you would like to read a more sophisticated chart feel free to use this one below, though I would recommend using the first one, but I guess, each to their own.

Spoiler for Sophisticated:
