Holiday economy is not new to people all aroundthe world. In China, it stands for the nationwide one-week holiday starting from October 1st(the National Day). The government established the week-long holiday back in 1999 tostimulate domestic spending. Tour operators, retailers, and wedding halls have been cashingin ever since.
However, there are shifting perspectives about holiday economy. Many people, includingsome economists, think positively about holiday economy. They believe that tourism-basedholiday economy has increased consumption and helped to spur the domestic demands. Whileothers, who worry about the negative effect of holiday economy, argue that holiday economydo more harm than good. For example, during the extended holiday, scenic spots areoverloaded with tourists, and it not only spoils the relaxing mood of the tourists, but alsooverburdens the tourist attractions.
In my opinion, both sides are reasonable. We should take good advantages of the holidayto develop economy while trying to tackle the problems existed with practical measures. Only inthis way can we not only enjoy the pleasure golden week endows us, but also promote thedevelopment of holiday economy soundly.
