Did you know about China’s Golden Week?

Hi everyone,

From 1-7 October 2019, the world’s biggest public holiday will take place.

During ‘Golden Week’, 730 million Chinese people will take a trip, either domestically or abroad. In fact, last year’s Golden Week saw around seven million Chinese guests using Booking.com for an international trip.



Have you added a mobile rate or country-specific rate on Booking.com to attract more Chinese travellers? Will you do something special to cater to Chinese guests during this period?



Add a comment below and let us know how your preparations for Golden Week 2019 are coming along!

Ilaria thanks for reminding us about Golden Week 2019.

Last Year I had a special promotion for Chinese guests but didn't have any luck.  I will try again this year to make a special offer and maybe it will work.

Thanks again for informing us and have a good day...

Hi Maria,

The promotion is not available in all countries, however, we could share some thoughts on how to cater Chinese guests for this period :)

thanks Illaria, No i have not tried this yet.   I had Chinese guests in the past , but have not tried adding a special for them yet.  Maybe Booking.com create a list of those all interested and send off to the major Chinese travel agents and thus making BDC partners ( not always sure what we are ) the preferred accommodation venues for them.  Worth giving a try. 

kind regards

Hi PT. Sengggigi,

Welcome to the Community and thanks for your comments!

Other partners will surely give you some tips on how to attract guests to your property.

Perhaps you could increase revenue by adding breakfast as an add-on like this article in our Partner Help is suggesting. 

Happy posting!

Ilaria
