You can use Asia/Ho_Chi_Minh, /Saigon, /Phnom_Penh, /Vientiane.
It is found by tzselect(8) if you use the undocumented "-t zone"

  $ tzselect -t zone
  Please identify a location so that time zone rules can be set correctly.
  Please select a continent, ocean, "coord", or "TZ".

  The following information has been given:


  Therefore TZ='Asia/Phnom_Penh' will be used.
  Selected time is now:   Mon Sep 19 21:19:23 +07 2022.
  Universal Time is now:  Mon Sep 19 14:19:23 UTC 2022.
  Is the above information OK?
  1) Yes
  2) No

  You can make this change permanent for yourself by appending the line
          TZ='Asia/Phnom_Penh'; export TZ
  to the file '.profile' in your home directory; then log out and log in again.

  Here is that TZ value again, this time on standard output so that you
  can use the /usr/bin/tzselect command in shell scripts:

I strongly recommend to document that option as well as making
!zone1970 the default, _or_ being more verbose and show both
saying something along the lines "shares timezone information
with" or what.

I would be willing to write an according patch.
