China extend Lunar Year holiday

In an effort to temporarily limit travel, the Chinese government have extended the week long Lunar New Year holiday by three days, meaning it will go through to Sunday 2nd February 2020 rather than ending on Thursday 30th January 2020.

The holiday, China’s biggest annual celebration, began on Saturday. Workers will now get an additional three days off, returning to work on Monday 3rd February 2020.

Hundreds of millions of Chinese people travel during the holiday, either for tourism or to visit family. The week, known in China as Spring Festival, typically includes large public events, but many festivities have been cancelled this year.

Many tourist attractions have been shuttered including the Disney theme parks in Shanghai and Hong Kong, along with the Forbidden City and sections of the Great Wall in Beijing.

We are currently awaiting information on when factories across China are expected to reopen. In the meantime if you have any enquiries regarding current bookings please contact your account manager.
