For millions of Chinese students who just finished their make-or-break gaokao exam or those are expected to graduate from college, there is one option lying ahead, a gap year. That's not a strange concept for students nowadays.
"The concept of Gap Year is that young people originally from Europe and the United States before entering the university will choose travel instead, because they have not determined their own future, don't know their interests or doubt should be engaged in the business or not, so they need around one to two years to get to know and understand the society. " One of our blogger wrote.

It could also include those graduates from college who don't want to jump into real world to their job days.

"Gap year"?
Yes, the "gap shows the great distance between the school and the society, specially in China where students are asked to learn too much theories and memorize a lot of so-called knowledge that is hard for practical use in their work or life!
Your topic is so complex that it needs a long novel to tell out its meaning!
Childish pure  mindset can simplify your life which let you live in a light way! Without man-made troubles you will work in high efficiency!

I think it is relative to the country. In China, I could understand a gap year after the gruelling experince of the gaokao. Yet, I also see it as the same time as a grim reminder of the inequalities in our society, where people find the money to not work AND travel for one year, I have absolutely no idea.
You know that every time I try to go
Where I really want to be
It's already where I am
'Cause I'm already there
