A Closer Look at the World's Largest Annual Human Migration: Chunyun

By Eiko Cheng Yuan Xuanqi Deng Zhang|Feb 17,2022

Chongqing- Chunyun, also known as the Chinese New Year Migration, Spring Festival Travel Rush, is the largest human migration on earth annually. Millions of people working or studying out of their hometowns will be hurrying home to reunite with families at this time. This long-held tradition is the main reason for the rush. The other is that the holiday is one of the two-week-long holidays of the year, a perfect travel time for many people, just like Americans spending their Christmas holidays.

In 2022, the travel rush began on January 17 and will last for 40 days. Chongqing's railway, water, and air traffic volume will reach 39.31 million during the Chunyun, increasing 7.8% over 2021. In this video, Eiko takes you to one of the most important traffic hubs in the city, the Chongqing North Railway Station, to present to you how the train station is putting effort to ensure the prevention and control of COVID-19 during the 2022 Spring Festival travel rush, and how do people feel when they are going home. Also, at the end of the video, you'll get to see the inside of the intelligent "Fuxing" electric multiple unit train, which is the newest type of smart train in China!
