When do Chinese Tourists travel?
During Golden Week
“Golden Week” is a name given to an annual 7-day holiday starting on October 1st, the National Day of China. “Golden” here means “the best”, and the “Golden Week” holiday is the best travel time; millions of Chinese set off on vacation during this period.
During Summer Holiday
China’s summer time is another peak travel season when many Chinese leave China. Students also enjoy their vacation during this summer holiday, which is the longest holiday of the year, lasting from early July to the end of August.
During Winter Holiday
The Spring Festival (the Lunar New Year), which usually falls between late January and mid-February.
Winter holiday for students can be as long as one month, while adults tend to have a weeklong or 10 day national holiday starting on the day before the Spring Festival.
The Spring Festival is a time for family reunion, blessing and cheerful moments. It also involves many complicated superstitions and customs, but many people today opt not to sweat the details.
A new trend in China is to get rid of those traditional rules and spend the New Year on a family vacation abroad. “My parents are getting old, and they have never traveled outside of Mainland China,” said Yuan Zhang, a consultant at a real estate company in China. “This spring Festival, I want to take them to America for a different experience. They couldn’t be more excited about that. I hope we can explore more places together in the future.”
