Yes, even in a major world centre of the production plan.
With such a large workload of Chinese workers and employees usually have only 5-15 days legal holiday. That's why national holidays — an extra chance to relax and travel.
Yet we must note that some weekend work is allowed only half a day. Then – home. So there is not much joy...
Here is an example: may 4 (youth Day) boys and girls in schools and universities do not attend the second half put them off. And serving in the army on 1 August of the day can spend as they want. This is the day the liberation army people's Republic of China. And women, on 8 March, the work released earlier for exactly half of my shift.
In time, though short, but still special days, including when celebrating the holidays in may in China, a very noticeable increase in traffic. It would seem that it should be the opposite. But we must remember that, first, citizens actively travel to travel. And the demand for it continues unabated.
Second, the Chinese people residing in the province but working in big cities, the holidays come to their homes to spend time with family and friends. Then the process is reversed. Now the buses willing to drive people to the place of their permanent job.
