Travel Tips During China Holidays

There are two “golden weeks” among all holidays, Spring Festival Week and National Holiday Week, which means most people have “a week off”. So domestic visitors are allowed some discretionary travel around China. During these two weeks, most scenic or historical spots will be swarming with domestic travelers. And hotels, restaurants and train tickets or air tickets will be hard to be obtained so you are suggested to avoid these two golden weeks when you plan your China travel.
