Migrant workers' children enjoy Spring Festival away from hometown


08:12, January 29, 2012

A boy plays a homemade wooden car and a toy car in Baisha village of Liuzhou City, south China's Guangxi Autonomous Region, Jan. 22, 2012. To save fare of the travels between Liuzhou in Guangxi and their homtowns in Guizhou Province, many children and their parents who are migrant workers did not come back for hometowns during the Spring Festival holiday, a time traditionally for family reunion. These children and their parents are from Guizhou Province, which is far awary from the work places of the migrant workers. The families rented rooms at a yard in Baisha village of Liuzhou. As some migrant workers spent many years in Liuzhou, some of their children were born in the city. Therefore, even they are not at their hometowns, they enjoy celebrating the Spring Festival.
