About 2.98 billion trips are estimated to be made during the Spring Festival travel rush between Jan 13 and Feb 21, slightly up from a year ago, according to the National Development and Reform Commission.

 

The Lunar New Year festival is the most important occasion for family reunions and fell on Jan 28 this year. Chinese workers enjoyed a week-long holiday starting Jan 27.
