The Chinese national holidays have well and truly come. While the seven-day “Golden Week” holiday is something most Chinese look forward to every year, some look at it differently. Ironically or humorously?

October 1: Stay home and watch the heavy congestion on all highways
October 2: Watch the long queues at many scenic locations
October 3: Read about the sky-rocketing hotel prices
October 4: Watch how visitors react to being ripped off
October 5: Feel sorry for those who did not book their train ticket in advance
October 6: Welcome back the heavy congestion to all highways
October 7: Learn how people cope with being jammed from entering the city from all directions

October 8 – Prepare a good pot of tea at work and listen to everyone’s complaints
