With the implementation of the new holidays plan beginning January 1st, 2008, the number of public holidays in China changes to 11 days, e.g. one day for New Year's Day, Tomb Sweeping Day, Labor Day, the Dragon Boat Festival and the Mid-Autumn Festival respectively and three days for National Day and the Spring Festival holidays respectively. If an intercalary month occurs in the lunar calendar, people will enjoy their days off in the first month.

Since holidays can be adjusted to connect with weekend, Chinese people may have two seven-day "golden weeks" (Spring Festival and National Day holidays) and five three-day "short vacations" (New Year's Day, Tomb Sweeping Day, Labor Day, the Dragon Boat Festival and the Mid-Autumn Festival holidays).

Guangzhou, like the rest of China, has implemented the two-day weekend policy since 1996. People work from Monday to Friday and rest on Saturday and Sunday.

After the introduction of the new holiday plan, the number of two-day weekends and national holidays has increased to 115 days per year.
