In this episode we explain all the statutory holidays in China such as Chinese New Year, National Day, and Dragon Boat Festival - what days do you get off, what are the traditions and customs, and what to expect when travelling. As you would expect, the Chinese holidays calendar is very different from Western ones, with entirely different occasions being celebrated and often in different ways. Listen to this episode if you are embarking on your first year in China!
