There are currently 40 world time zones. There are 24 standard time zones plus up to 16 (or maybe more) areas of the world that that use time zones divided into 15-30-45 minute increments.

China, about the size of the United States, uses the same time throughout the country even though it crosses 4 standard time zones.

There are 24 time zones worldwide. To see what the current time is in any zone, you can use this site, I'm sure there are others as well.According to http://www.timezone.com there are 6 additional intermediate time zones listed. They are: 1. Canada : Newfoundland 30 min from Halifax, 2. New Zealand: 45 min between Chatum Is. and Wellington, 3. Nepal is 45 min from the +5 Hrs timezone, 4. French Polynesia: Marquesas is 30 min off from Gambier, Australia has 2 sets: Darwin is 1.5 hrs difference from Perth and So. Australia is 30 min off from Queensland. So there are 30 time zones recognized throughout the world!
