September is here, which means the summer holiday (暑假 – shǔ jià) has come to an end, and children all around the world are going back to school. Luckily for Chinese students, there’s another holiday coming up in just a few short weeks. As a matter of fact, this year there are TWO holidays back to back – Mid-Autumn Festival (中秋节 – zhōng qiū jié) and National Holiday (国庆节 – guó qìng jié). As such, many people in China are already planning a vacation (假期 – jià qī) for the holiday week. Some will return to hometowns to visit family, some will head for the sun and fun of places like Hainan (海南 – hǎi nán) and Xiamen (厦门 – xià mén), and others will get out of dodge and escape the madness of traveling in China during a big holiday by heading abroad. I fall into the latter category, as I’m planning a trip to Bali (巴厘岛 – bā lí dǎo) to visit a friend, relax on the beach, and do some hiking/water sports. Talking about vacations is one of the most fun things to do when learning a language, so here are some important words and phrases related to planning vacations in Chinese:
