what is widely known as the world’s largest annual human migration


If you’re planning to travel around China during the coming Lunar New Year, you won’t be alone. You’ll be traveling along with hundreds of millions of locals making more than 2.8 billion trips in what is widely known as the world’s largest annual human migration.
Between Feb. 2 and Mar. 15, droves of Chinese migrant workers, white collar workers and students will fan out from the country’s urban centers to visit family and friends in nooks and crannies across the country. According to recent government projections, this year’s migration will entail 2.4 billion road trips, 295 million train journeys and 47.5 million voyages by air. (Authorities didn’t specify what percentage of travelers would make it home in time for the festive fireworks, or even if they would arrive at all.)
To help ease the mayhem, China Real Time has devised a handy list of travel tips to help you stand apart from the crowd and stay sane during the travel-season rush.
