Chinese National Day 2023

28th Sep, 2023

Chinese National Day is celebrated on October 1st every year to commemorate the founding of People’s Republic of China. On that day, lots of large-scaled activities are held nationwide. The 7-day holiday from Oct. 1st to 7th is called 'Golden Week', during which a large number of Chinese people go traveling around the country.

In 2023, the National Day holiday follows the Mid-Autumn Festival holiday, hence forming a prolonged holiday of 8 days. The holiday dates are Sep. 29 to Oct. 6th, 2023. People will be on duty on Oct. 7 (Sat) and Oct. 8 (Sun).

Why is it called Golden Week?

Falling in autumn season with clear weather and comfortable temperatures, Chinese National Day holiday is a golden time for travel. It is the longest public holiday in China besides the Chinese New Year. The weeklong holiday enables both short-distance and long-distance trips, resulting in a boom of tourist revenue, as well as an overwhelming tourist crowd.
