The Shanghai government has extended the upcoming May Day public holidays period for 2 additional days to coincide with the upcoming opening of the Shanghai World Expo.
As such, it has declared Friday, April 30, and Tuesday, May 4, 2010, as additional (08-Dec-2009), one-off, regional public holidays.
Such regional public holidays are rare in China, but there is a precedent, that of the Beijing Government declaring the first day of the 2008 Olympic Games as an additional, one-off, regional public holiday (06-Aug-2008).
