Spring Festival travel rush continues (9)

(Xinhua)  08:29, January 31, 2013  

A passenger sleeps on the train L8600 from Hangzhou, capital of east China's Zhejiang Province, to Fuyang, east China's Anhui Province, Jan. 29, 2013. The 40-day Spring Festival travel rush started on Jan. 26. The Spring Festival, which falls on Feb. 10 this year, is traditionally the most important holiday of the Chinese people. It is a custom for families to reunite in the holiday, a factor that 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.(Xinhua/Han Chuanhao)
