Many people have already started preparing their holiday schedules and trips for next year. Every year before the New Year’s Day, the State Council announces the schedule of next year’s holidays.



There are 7 Chinese holidays in China which are New Year’s Day, Spring Festival, Qingming Festival (Tomb Sweep), Labor Day, Dragon Boat Festival, Mid-Autumn Festival and National Day. However, in 2020 we are only getting six public holidays because Mid-Autumn and National Day will fall on the same day.
