On October 1, China will celebrate National Day to commemorate the 74th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China. Official events will likely focus on Tiananmen Square and other famous landmarks in Beijing. In addition to the massive closure of businesses and banks on October 1, the holiday period was extended from September 29 to October. The sixth will cause significant travel disruptions across the country as millions of people move around the country.
Transport disruptions and congestion are likely to increase as a surge in traveler numbers threatens to overwhelm rail, bus and air networks. Many people choose to drive their own vehicles, resulting in significant traffic delays on state and regional highways, especially in the days leading up to the holidays. Roads will be closed before and during official celebrations. Metro stations may also be closed.
The authorities are likely to strengthen security measures in the capital ahead of the holidays. Police may ask pedestrians to pass through checkpoints near Tiananmen Square, and plainclothes and uniformed officers may conduct random checks. Other cities are also likely to increase security during the holidays, especially around monuments, politically sensitive landmarks and transportation hubs. Petty crime is likely to increase across China, especially in crowded tourist areas and transport hubs.
Small protests in urban centers cannot be ruled out on October 1, especially outside government offices in provincial capitals. Demonstrations are also possible in Hong Kong, but there will likely be heavy police deployment in the area to quickly disperse potential protests.
While Hong Kong and Macau are unlikely to experience major traffic delays, significant congestion may occur at Hong Kong International Airport (HKG) and Macau International Airport (MFM), at border checkpoints with mainland China and on ferries.
If you are traveling during the holidays, please confirm all train, bus and flight bookings. Airports can be very crowded and you may arrive earlier than usual due to delays at check-in counters and security checkpoints. Traffic jams are possible on major highways; Drive carefully and consider minimizing unnecessary travel over the holidays. Anticipate possible delivery delays; Consider alternative shipping methods for urgent shipments. Take extra precautions to protect your money and valuables. Be prepared for higher demand for hotels and taxis in tourist areas and potential price gouging.
