China’s 2021 holiday schedule will, per tradition, include two week-long holidays: Chinese New Year, aka Spring Festival, which will take place Feb. 11-17; and the National Day Holiday, Oct. 1-7.
Other official holidays are:
New Year’s Day: Jan. 1-3
Tomb Sweeping Festival: April 3-5
Labor Day: May 1-5
Dragon Boat Festival: June 12-14
Mid-autumn Festival: Sept. 19-21
Private companies in China have the right to give additional days off – so long as the official holiday calendar is maintained. However, Saturdays and Sundays are often “adjusted work days” to make up for some long holiday breaks, such as Spring Festival and Labor Day.
Adjusted work days in 2021 are: Feb. 7 & 20, April 25, May 8, Sept. 18 & 26, and Oct. 9.
