Categories of Chinese Holidays
Due to the long history and glorious culture of China, the Chinese people celebrate a great many festivals which can be divided into the following four major categories: national holidays designated by the government to commemorate some special events; traditional festivals - a reflection of the traditional Chinese customs; ethnic minority festivals unique to specific Chinese ethnic groups; tourism festivals associated with renowned Chinese scenic spots. Various holidays show a window through which Chinese culture and daily life can be seen vividly.


Tips for Traveling in 'Golden Weeks'

Among all the Chinese holidays, there are two 'Golden Weeks' - Spring Festival Week and National Day Week. Both of the two holidays last for three days but by combining two weekends with them, people benefit from seven consecutive days off. During these two weeks, most people go out and enjoy themselves in a great variety of ways with a resultant boost to the economy, hence the nickname 'Golden Week'. Hotel rooms, train tickets or air tickets will definitely be in great demand then. Therefore, we recommend that people who are planning China tour packages avoid these Golden Weeks in view of the huge crowds that gather at the major tourist attractions.

Holidays in China are peculiar. They wear special costumes and each holiday becomes like a masked ball. I would like to visit China.
