China National Day Golden Week

Sunday, October 1, 2017 - 10:45am to Sunday, October 8, 2017 - 10:45am

The China National Day on October 1 celebrates the founding of the People's Republic of China in 1949. Chinese citizens enjoy 3 mandatory days off as part of this holiday, known as Golden Week. Parades, performances, and TV specials mark the occasion. This year, the Mid-Autumn Festival falls during Golden Week (October 4), and so the holiday week will stretch to 8 consecutive days.
