China's 2018 Public Holidays Announced


By Dan Entwistle


Great news holidaymakers, it seems the 2018 holiday schedule has leaked a few weeks earlier than usual this year!


While we've officially been granted 27 days off by the powers that be, once you factor in the weekends that the holidays cross over and the make-up days we have to pay back we actually only get 11 days off, the same as this year.


To make it easier for you to visualise, we've thrown together a handy printable calendar, but if you want the holidays listed out you can find them below.
