2018 Official China Holidays
« on: December 21, 2017, 01:23:06 AM »
Here we go folks:



New Year's Day 2018: New Year's comes early this year, with our three-day holiday starting on Dec 30 and riding through to Jan 1, back to work on Tuesday. No make-up days.

Spring Festival/Chinese New Year: The usual seven-day affair of travel hell is this year accented with not just a pre-Sunday (Feb 11) but also a post-Saturday (Feb 24) make-up day for good measure.

Qing Ming Festival: The three-day Tomb Sweeping Fest kicks off on Apr 5 and finishes with a lovely makeup Sunday, Apr 8.

May Labor Day: Start the three-day May holiday with a nice Saturday workday (Apr 28) and then ride it out till the following Tuesday (May 1).

Dragon Boat Festival: 2018's Dragon Boat Festival falls a whole month and a half later than 2017's, and makes for a relaxing three-day holiday Jun 16-18, with no make-up day in sight.

Mid-Autumn Festival: Mid-Autumn Festival is not quite so forgiving, with a weekend and a Monday off (Sep 22-24) masked as a three-day holiday.

October National Day: Then comes the year's second Golden Week but not before you've toiled through a six-day work week, Sep 29 and 30 acting as a make-up buffer before the long run of Oct 1-7, a total of seven days off.

And with that, it's best to get planning your holidays and booking your tickets before they disappear before your very eyes. Roll on 2018!

alors régressons fatalement, eternellement. Des débutants, avec la peur comme exutoire à l'ignorance et Alzheimer en prof d'histoire de nos enfances!
