21:30 sunset is perfect in the summer IMO. I also like the early 16:00 Winter sunsets.

I HATE early sunsets (before 6pm).

Anything after 7pm is appreciable.

My perfect time would be about 9.15-9.30pm in summer.

In winter, 7pm sounds right.

Penang, Dakar, Lhasa have ideal time zones relative to their respective latitude.

It's okay for me as it is now.

Sunset should be about 22:00 in June and about 16:00 in December
As i mentioned in another thread i wouldn't mind a shift one hour ahead in both seasons, but i can live with the present times as well.

6:00pm

With late sunsets you can't sleep early easily. Also, you wouldn't be able to experience the night in its fully glory (if you're a night lover) - I want to see stars and the moon blazing at 7:00pm, not 11:00pm.

7pm in winter and 10pm in summer, the way it would be if DST didn't end. I'm more bothered by the weak angle of the sun here than the actual length of the day.

I'm happy with my winter sunsets. I think in the summer a sunrise of 5am is too late for my latitude!
Same thought. Even I prefer "Spring Backward, Fall Forward" (opposite of common DST)
