I just realized that I will be coming to Shanghai towards the end of the upcoming golden week 十一黄金周 （Shí-Yī huángjīnzhōu）celebrating the National Day 国庆节 (guóqìngjié) on October 1st。
While Oct.1 is the subject of an <a href=http://chinesepod.com/learnchinese/%E5%8D%81%E4%B8%80%E6%97%85%E6%B8%B8%E9%AB%98%E5%B3%B0%E6%9C%9F/discussion>advanced lesson</a> I'd like to know what will the impact be on Shanghai then. Will oceans of people 人山人海 (rénshānrénhǎi) have come to the city like a swarm of bees 一窝蜂 (yīwōfēng) or be all gone to the Maldives? Will the week-end be more / less crowded than usual, is this going to be tourists peak time (旅游高峰期 lǚyóu gāofēngqī) ?
