a 7 Day holiday starting October 1st with China’s National Day which is to commemorate the founding of the People’s Republic of China in 1949.
This year the Mid-Autumn Festival will also fall on October 1st and will be combined with National Day. This happens one out of five years and the holiday period generally gets a day longer therefore Chinese people will enjoy an 8-day public holiday this year.
This period is also called “golden week” because of the biggest week for tourism in China when people have a week off to reunite with families and take trips.
Please keep in mind that Customs will be closed and as usual during this period we expect severe cargo rush the coming weeks as well as the week after the holiday.
