About 2.98 billion trips are expected to be made in China during the 2017 Spring Festival travel rush, which is known as chunyun in Chinese.

 

China's travel frenzy surrounding the festival officially lasts 40 days and this year occurs from January 13 to February 21. The estimated number of journeys during this hectic period in 2017 is 2.2 percent higher than the figure for the corresponding period in 2016.

 

The Spring Festival, or Chinese Lunar New Year—the most important occasion for Chinese family reunions—falls on January 28 this year.
