Those traveling by rail seemed to have fewer challenges, apart from crowds.

Railway trips were set to hit a record high, according to the national railway operator.

On Sunday, the last day of the holiday, some 12.52 million passenger trips were expected to be made by rail, a daily record for the travel rush, according to the China Railway Corp. An additional 1,067 trains were being scheduled to meet the demand, it said.
