(Golden) Holiday Tension

Related entries: General, News

We reported on changes to China’s holiday policy here.

The age of the Golden Week is over! But some would like to hang on to it, despite the central government’s desire to reduce the May holiday to three days – h/t @eChinacities: “Stick to May holiday plan, says govt”.

This story is a reminder that the centre does not always control the regions, and also that some are trying to find ways to boost consumer demand and help the economy. Too bad for those who have long journeys home…

Oh yes, and don’t forget Tomb-sweeping Day, “Qing Ming”. April 6th (Monday) is a holiday.
