While most people are busy traveling to tourist attractions during the National Day holiday, many residents in Harbin, capital of Heilongjiang province, remained at their posts, saving the lives of unfortunate ones, clearing roads for vehicles, or cooking for visitors.

The National Day holiday, starting from Oct 1 to 7, was called Golden Week because the seven-day national holiday generally sees millions of people set off on national trips that bring huge profits to tourism hot spots.
