UPDATE: GOLDEN WEEK IN CHINA – FRIDAY 01/10 – THURSDAY 07/10
The legal holiday for Chinese National Day is 3 days in mainland China, 2 days in Macau and 1 day in Hong Kong. In mainland, the 3 days are usually connected with the weekends ahead and after, hence people can enjoy a 7-day holiday from October 1st to 7th, which is the so-called ‘Golden Week’.
This is the biggest week for tourism in China when people have a week off to reunite with families and take trips.
This will further affect the already congested Chinese Ports (imports and exports) and Chinese manufacturers as they operate on skeleton staff in lieu of the holidays.
