We have been learning a lot about the timezone functions in PHP. In this article,
you will learn how to create a new timezone object. The timezone_open() function in PHP
creates and return new DateTimeZone object.

What is the syntax of the timezone_open() function in PHP?

Procedural syntax

timezone_open(timezone)

Object-oriented syntax

DateTimeZone::__construct(timezone)

Both of the above syntaxes produce the same results. The first is without using the class and
the second use the DateTimeZone class to call the method.
