– Each year we have two “Golden Weeks” where the entire country is on vacation for 7 consecutive days: one time for National Day on October 1 and a second time for Spring Festival (late-January or early-February). Teachers often request off a week before or after a Golden
Week to allow for a two-week vacation. Other times, teachers may save their personal days to go back to their home country for a longer vacation (e.g. two weeks for Christmas).
