Local Office Hours
In China, businesses usually open from 8:00 am and close about 5:00 pm (some cities may vary). Offices are closed for lunch break of one hour, generally between 12:00 noon to 1:00 pm. Supper is taken around 6:00 pm or 7:00 pm.
Unlike the western world, most Chinese supermarkets and department stores remain open on public holidays, and some of them even extend their working hours into late night.
