China Trip During National Day Holiday Week

Jump to last reply

We were originally going to go China at end of May but for a number of reasons needed to change to fall. Frequent flier ticket dates were limited. So we will be in China from September 25 through October 8. The National Day holiday is October 1. I have seen different descriptions of whether it is three days or 7 days.

We were already able to simply change dates at our hotels and for our air ticket so I am not worried about that.

Our basic intinerary is

- Beijing arrive late on Sept 25, depart early Sept 30.

- Yunnan from Sept 30 to Oct 5 (we are staying in one place dear Dali with biking and hiking opportunities from there).

- Shanghai arrive late on Oct 5, depart late on Oct 8.

But what can we expect for those days before during and after such a holiday? Our only internal China travel days are September 30 (a Monday, from Bejing to Yunnan) and October 5 (a Saturday from Yunnan to Shanghai).

As best as I have read restaurants, shops and attractions would all be open but might be crowded with others enjoying the holiday. We are used to big cities and enjoy the festitivies of holidays but want to plan appropriately.
