As Chinese people mostly work far away from their hometown; therefore; every year around the Chinese New Year or Spring Festival holiday is a critical moment that mainland workers have to grasp this opportunity to embark on the road home. People coin this scenario Chunyun (春運 in Chinese) and it is indeed one of the world’s largest yearly human migration in which it is expected that there are around 300 million people rushing back to their hometown this year.
