I am trying to organize a short trip in China, probably a few days in Beijing.
I found cheap tickets but the dates include the Chinese Mid-August national holiday (lunar calendar August, so from 09/15 to 09/17 in the 2016 solar calendar). This made me wondering what I should expect during these days.
- How will be public transportations? Not in use, or crowded?
- What about museums and touristic attractions? and restaurants?
- Are there some special events, such that festivals?
I am asking with the Korean situation in mind: many Koreans travel to visit their family during their Mid-August holiday, so reserving a bus can be quite complicated. Public offices are closed. Many also use this time to travel, so touristic destinations (as Busan) get overly crowded; on the contrary, less touristic cities (for example, Daejeon) look empty during that time.
