Its Labor Day!

In 2018 China Car Times was acquired by Autowise. This article originally appeared on

We dont really like talking about China itself on CCT – We like cars, not sociology stuff. Anyway, the reason for us not updating every day is because its a week off in China – the May Holiday, 7 days of freedom. Well not really, the government only allows three days off, and the rest of the week is made up by working two weekends in a row. So its not really a holiday at all.

We cant really explain whats happening, so we found this on Wikipedia:

Labor Day is celebrated on May 1, and is a public holiday.

From 1990s, the Labor Day holiday has been extended from 1 day to 3 days. Furthermore, Chinese government makes it a 7 day holiday by moving the prior weekend and the upcoming one together with these 3 days. Now Labor Day holidays is one of the three Golden Weeks in China. Millions of Chinese people travel within China during this holidays. Since 2003, a lot of Chinese citizens visit the Hong Kong Special Administration Region during the Labor Day holidays

So we wont be posting as much news as usual this week. Perhaps as little as one article per day
