Knowing and well understanding Chinese festival and holiday is helpful for make your schedule well organized for purchase order and business trip.


China has seven legal holidays in a year, including New Year's Day, Chinese New Year (Spring Festival), Qingming Jie (Tomb Sweeping Festival), Labour Day (May Day), Dragon Boat Festival, Mid-Autumn Day and National Day. Each year's holidays are announced about three weeks before the start of the year by the General Office of the State Council. A notable feature of mainland Chinese holidays is that weekends are usually swapped with the weekdays next to the actual holiday to create a longer holiday period.
The table below provides a detailed list of 2018 public holidays in China.

Chinese New Year is the grandest traditional festival in China, hence the longest public holiday,for annual family reunion. Along with National Day,they are so called as Golden Week. Thousands and thousands of people travels home and/or to tourism places,results in huge crowds everywhere,and nation wide shutdown of factories and trading business. And the actual impact also includes early leave before holiday and delayed return to the post.


In addition to the above seven festivals, Chinese people celebrate four others on which some people have a half day off. So their impact to foreign trade business is so minor that can be neglected.
