October 6, Shanghai - China celebrate eight days of National Holiday from October 1, commonly known as Golden Week. This is the biggest holiday week since January Covid19 outbreak, a test to China recovery. 

Hotel prices shot up, ride-hailing apps crashed, tickets to the Great Wall sold out: after more than nine long, housebound months, almost half a billion Chinese people are taking a vacation.

With the Covid-19 pandemic largely under control in China, the Golden Week holiday is putting on display Chinese confidence in its economic rebound and its public health measures. Through the first four days of the week long holiday that started Oct. 1, some 425 million people traveled domestically, according to the Ministry of Culture and Tourism, nearly 80% of last year's number.
