Spring Festival Travel Rush 春运 (Chunyun)
The peak Spring Festival travel period, chunyun in Chinese, lasts about 40 days. It usually starts 15 days before Lunar New Year's Eve and ends 25 days after.
The Chinese Lunar New Year, which falls on Feb 10 this year, is the most important festival for Chinese, and millions of people including the bulk of migrant workers and college students travel home for family reunions.
