Spring Festival travel rush starts around China

Passengers get off a train after arriving at the Yinchuan Railway Station in Yinchuan city, the capital of Northwest China's Ningxia Hui autonomous region, Jan 26, 2013. The 40-day Spring Festival travel rush started on Saturday. The Spring Festival, which falls on Feb 10 this year, is traditionally the most important holiday of Chinese people, a custom for families to reunite. It has led to massive seasonal travel rushes in recent years as more Chinese leave their hometowns to seek work elsewhere. Public transportation is expected to accommodate about 3.41 billion travelers nationwide during the holiday, including 225 million railway passengers. [Photo/Xinhua]
