China's Hangzhou Tourism Commission has announced that it plans to resume the seven-day May Day Golden Week public holiday by adding a paid holiday of four days before or after the public holiday, or by adding two days before and two days after the holiday.
Tourism authorities from Chongqing and Dalian are also planning to appeal to the central government for the resumption of the Golden Week, and China's Guangdong Province was recently given permission by the Central Government of Beijing to restore the Labor Day Golden Week public holidays in the province, as an experiment (25-Feb-2009).
The May golden week public holidays (20-Sep-1999) were abandoned in a revision of the list of official China public holidays which took effect in early 2008 (17-Dec-2007).
