Looking back at Spring Fesitival Travel 'ticket rush'

Looking back at Spring Fesitival Travel 'ticket rush'

Ticket sales started on Thursday for train travel around the Chinese New Year holidays, with the China Railway Corporation expecting a record 356 million trips during the travel rush from January 13 to February 21.
This period holds the largest annual migration on Earth, as millions working or studying out of their hometowns will be hurrying home for the “Spring Festival” family reunion.
After the recent introduction of electronic booking, people can now buy a ticket quite easily by clicking away on their mobiles or computers. But it was quite a different story years ago, when getting a sought-after berth on a holiday train meant joining a long queue at ticket offices. Check out these pictures of such chaotic scenes to see the lengths Chinese people are willing to go to in order to get home.
