agoda.com Celebrates China's National Day Golden Week

agoda.com, Asia’s global hotel booking site and part of Nasdaq-listed Priceline Group (Nasdaq: PCLN), today released hotel deals for China's National Day Golden Week.

National Day Golden Week is one of China's major holidays. Stretching for seven days from October 1 to October 7, Golden Week sees millions of Chinese travel around the country, with most tourists headed to big cities like Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen and Guangzhou.

National Day brings with it spectacular celebrations. In Beijing, Tiananmen Square hosts one of the country's biggest events, with crowds gathering from early morning to watch the raising of the flag. Song and dance performances, sound and light displays and a huge military parade entertain guests throughout the day, and in the evening the event is capped off by a massive fireworks show.

In Shanghai, crowds converge on The Bund the night before National Day to enjoy the patriotic buzz of the holiday atmosphere, while an international music and fireworks show is staged in Pudong's Century Park.  Shanghai also hosts a brunch-time National Day Concert at the striking petal-shaped Shanghai Oriental Art Center, also in Pudong.

China's Golden Week is also a popular time to shop. Beijing's Wangfujing shopping street teems with people attending gold and jewelry sales, while Shenzhen's mega malls offer myriad bargains for holiday shoppers. Guangzhou's famous Shangxia Jiu Pedestrian Street is great both for shopping and people-watching, with more than 200 shops and extended opening hours.

Golden Week is a prime time for travel in China and agoda.com has worked hard to secure special rates in the country's most popular urban destinations. These specials are for a limited time only, so act fast!
