The PRC is turning 71 and that means Golden Week is finally upon us. This year, we're looking at an eight-day break
as National Day coincides with Mid-Autumn Festival on Thursday 1 October, with the rest of the days off extending to the next Thursday (October 8).
While many might be jetting off to destinations all around the country
, plenty of us will be sticking in Shanghai for the holiday. From booze-filled brunches and all-night parties to art exhibitions, family-friendly activities and more, here are the best things to do if you're staying in the city for the long October break.
