Holidays in China in 2023

The Chinese New Year, Tomb Sweeping Day, Labour Day, Dragon Boat Festival, Mid Autumn Festival, and National Holiday are the six national holidays observed in China each year.

It is essential to notice that many holidays, such as Chinese New Year, and Mid-Autumn Festival, are based on the Chinese Lunar Calendar. Hence, the dates change each year.

Government offices and banks are closed in China on public holidays. However, some employees are frequently present.

Some establishments will remain open during the holidays. Most large malls, tourist sites, public transportation, hotels, and restaurants will stay open or even extend their hours.

During Chinese New Year, most businesses in China, except for hotels and large restaurants, close for up to a week.
