Chinese people's memory of Spring Festival travel rush
Migrant worker Chen Yifeng (8th, R) and his wife Xu lining (5th, R) pose for photos with their family after a 14-hour journey by motorcycle from Foshan, south China's Guangdong Province, to Pingding Village, Teng County of south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, Jan. 19, 2017. Returning to hometowns remains the most important part of the Chinese Spring Festival. Whether self-driving, or taking the trains or flights, homecomings and family gatherings are a priority for many Chinese. The annual travel rush around the festival, known as "chunyun," often puts the country's transportation system to the test. China's transport authorities are busy getting ready for the Spring Festival travel rush starting Jan. 21 this year, with 3 billion trips expected to be made. (Xinhua/Cai Yang)
