Spending hours on cramped transport is not exactly fun, but it doesn't have to be hellish. Wu Ni looks at some gadgets to make the journey a little easier.

The journey home can be rough for travelers who have to cram into overcrowded carriages and spend long hours squeezed into trains and buses.

Price: about 20 yuan

Standing-room-only tickets traditionally exist on slow trains and their number should be no more than 30 percent of the number of seats in a single carriage.

With the stool, the traveler can at least rest for while when there is enough space.
