By He Na and Jiang Xueqing | China Daily | Updated:2013-02-01 08:46The Beijing Railway Station is one of the busiest places in China during the worlds biggest travel rush. [Cui Meng / China Daily]The worlds largest migration of humanity starts, report He Na and Jiang Xueqing.Every year, at this time, millions of Chinese embark on the worlds biggest travel rush – the trek home.With joy, or possibly frustration after toiling for the past year, a huge proportion of the population will set out on a journey of reunion for the countrys most important holiday – Spring Festival.Possibly as many as a billion people will shuttle between the cities where they live and work and their hometowns for the holiday.To ensure the smooth running of the worlds largest annual migration, extra travel services are being organized from Jan 26 until March 6. A record 3.41 billion trips are expected to be made.In addition to the railway system, which will bear the brunt of the pressure, airlines, road and shipping networks have all geared up to meet the surge in passenger numbers.The rail network is expected to handle 225 million trips, while long-distance buses will transport up to 3.1 billion passengers. The combined figure accounts for 99 percent of Chinas rail and bus capacity, according to Xinhua News Agency.Some 35.5 million journeys will be made by air during the festivals peak, a rise of 4.9 percent from the same period last year.Obviously, such a huge number of travelers will stretch the countrys transport network to its limits and pose challenges for each part of the system.While some will enjoy the luxury of air travel, for many millions more the journey means being stuck in overcrowded train carriages for long, boring journeys that will take many hours.China Daily asked five people, representative of different groups in society, to share their stories of the journey home.Previous Page1 2 3 4 5 6 Next PagePrevious Page1 2 3 4 5 6 Next PageRelated StoriesSpring Festival great escapeSpring Festival travel rush starts in DalianSpring Festival travel rushLunar New Year travel rush seen at Beijing West Railway StationSpring Festival travel rush starts around China70,000 railway police deployed for travel rushSpring Festival travel rush starts around ChinaDalian prepares for Spring Festival travel rushPhotoLife in space captured on Tiangong-IIAmphibious aircraft AG600 displayed in South Chinas ZhuhaiA sprinkling of snowSchool uniforms get chic lookPotala Palace gets annual whitewashSouth African runner wins Shanghai MarathonLatestXi calls for Belgium participation in China-led bankPresident Xi urges efforts to improve work safety mechanismCoal price fever chills power plantsLife in space captured on Tiangong-IIMan born in poor family now donates millions to poor peopleState Council NewsPremier Li to visit Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Latvia, RussiaChina to promote rehabilitation and assistive products industryExclusiveMan born in poor family now donates millions to poor peopleAstronauts first week in spaceCome crack secrets of Shenzhou XIEditors picksMan born in poor family now donates millions to poor peopleSchool uniforms get chic lookTen photos you dont wanna missTen photos from around China: Oct 21-27SpecialSixth plenum of 18th CPC Central CommitteeShenzhou XI: New frontiers, new milestoneBACK TO THE TOPHOMECHINAWORLDBUSINESSLIFESTYLECULTURETRAVELWATCHTHISSPORTSOPINIONREGIONALFORUMNEWSPAPERChina Daily PDFChina Daily E-paperMOBILECopyright 1995 -var oTime = new Date();
