The Change In Vacation Time Is In Line With Economic Restructuring

- Jun 04, 2018-

China's vacation system has changed several times.For a long time after the founding of the People's Republic of China, China implemented the one-day weekly rest system.By 1994, the rest time had evolved into a special "big and small weekend", with two days off for the big weekend and one day off for the small one.Then in 1995, the weekend was officially born.Changing the single day of rest to a double holiday, the general public has unwittingly added 52 holidays.

Wu bihu, director of the tourism research and planning center at Peking University, said that China's economy was developing rapidly and people's demand for leisure and tourism continued to grow.After the 1997 financial crisis in southeast Asia, it became a consensus to stimulate consumption, promote economy and promote the development of domestic tourism through the holiday economy.At the same time, "golden week" gives people enough time to rest and stimulates people's economic thinking from "accumulation" to "accumulation - consumption".

 In 2008, the official May Day holiday was changed from 3 days to 1 day, meaning that the golden week of May Day was canceled, and qingming, Dragon Boat Festival and Mid-Autumn festival holidays were added.This marks the beginning of the holiday system to pay attention to traditional cultural factors.
