The timezone PWT in Palau

Timezones are always computed by their difference to UTC, the "Universal Time Coordinated". In Palau exists only a single tonezone at UTC+9. E.g. New York is currently at UTC-4 in Eastern Time, so the time difference between NY and Palau is 13 hours.

Palau has no time difference between summer and winter. A daylight saving time doesn't exist.

Palau has an east-west extension of 3.6 degrees of longitude. Given the country's location in Micronesia, this corresponds to about 400 kilometers. With such a small extent the course of the sun at different positions in the country hardly matters. The position of the sun in the west of the country deviates from that in the east only about 14 minutes. This means the sun rises and sets 14 minutes later in the west than in the east.
Timezones

No daylight saving time in Palau

Due to the sun's orbit around the equator, the days are longer in summer (June to September in the northern hemisphere). Countries that switch to daylight saving time in the summer months align the daylight phase with the human rhythm. Unused bright morning hours are thus shifted into the evening (more information on daylight saving time here).

Due to its proximity to the equator, the impact in Palau would not be particularly large. Koror Town is located just 820 km from the equator. A day in midsummer would then not last from 05:46 to 18:21, but from 06:46 to 19:21. The effect would be quite noticeable in the evening, but the sun rising later in the morning falls at a time when many people are already awake. Thus, daylight saving time was never introduced in Palau.
