By including weekends and taking a vacation on April 30th, many people have a week of holidays this year. Many Japanese go somewhere during Golden Week holidays.
Decades ago, I went to China during Golden Week holidays. Then, I saw some women in red suits. I heard that they were brides and many Chinese couples got married around the time of May Day. I don't know whether it's different now. Even in China, the holiday-studded week including May Day is called "Golden Week(黄金週)" now.
