Chinese New Year starts next week — meaning that the notorious travel surge that’s related to the holiday will begin, too.

You can even stand a coin or a ticket on the windowsill and they won’t fall down!
Covering most major and minor cities in the country, the Chinese high-speed railway network is very well developed.
