October holiday? You must be suicidal. Try traveling a week before or after the holiday. Even right now is much better. but the National Holiday? The most popular vacation time in China???

You won't find anywhere like that during the October holidays in China. At least not anywhere that deals with any sort of tourist.

Your apartment! surprise

 

Your city might be empty a bit too, depends where do you live in China.

I remember, my Fuk in Xinjiang was dead during National holidays in 2012.

This Golden week I will just head out around the local area on the ebike with my daughter.  There are a couple of villages I want to explore on the other side of the river, and the single bridge over there is too dangerous to take the daughter in normal times.

 

I often wish there was an equivilent here to the UK OS paper maps to help locate points of interest.

 

Many of the urban villages where I live have little pockets of "ancient village" hidden away, complete with their clan temples.

 

I might also have a couple of day trips downtown. Get the metro down to a random stop, and just wander in some general direction to see what is there.

 

Last thing I do at any national holiday time is go anywhere distant.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
