All The National Holidays You Need to Know 2024
Do you frequently buy from China?
Do you ever visit China?
If you do, you need to know the holiday schedules in China. I know many people complain that they lost contact all of a sudden when they are discussing a project with a supplier. And I met customers made a vain trip when they visited China in the holiday time. Indeed, sourcing from China is not easy. But if you know about your China coworkers’ schedule, things would be quite different.
Here is a holiday schedule 2024 for you. Please check our holiday time before booking your China trip or when you are estimating the mass order production lead time. We’d update this every year as Chinese holidays are based on the lunar calendar.
