The Chinese government has officially confirmed the public holiday schedule for 2018.

Though the calendar is normally released by the General Office of the State Council in early December, state-run media outlets last month published what appeared to be a leaked version of the holiday schedule for next year.  

Well, looks like State Council finally got around to confirming the schedule, which was released yesterday. It's identical to last month's unofficial one too, so no need to change your travel plans!

Take a look at China's full 2018 public holiday schedule here.
