Holidays in China - China Weekly Hangout

Devastating pictures of tourist areas in the Golden week of October showed again that taking a holiday together with 650 428 million others is not always a good idea, even though a growing number might go abroad.
The now adjusted system of Golden Week was introduced to encourage consumer spending - still high on the political agenda. But would a paid leave, where you can decide yourself your holidays, be a good alternative? Some love the ideal, others loath it. And what is worse, many Chinese would most likely not take their holidays, but try to cash in at the end of the year. That would cause consumer spending to drop.
What would you do? How did you spend your holidays in October, and what would be a good alternative?

Join the +China Weekly Hangout on Thursday 17 October, 10pm Beijing Time, 4pm CEST(Europe) and 10am EST (US/Canada). You can leave your remarks here, but during the event you can also ask questions and remarks using the Question tool at the event page here. At the event page you can also register for participation at the hangout.
