Those who stayed in the city for the May holiday, did it feel more crowded to you? According to Xinhua, it was – since more than 2.45 million tourists decided to make Shanghai their holiday destination. That’s about 20,000 more tourists than last year. Despite the crappy weather, these intrepid travelers trekked out to downtown Puxi, the Pearl Tower and Century Park in droves. Other fun statistics: On May 1, the Shanghai railways handled over 1.27 million passengers, over 2,700 people left from Pudong International Airport on between 7 and 8:30am, and at least 50 people missed their flights because of traffic jams due to road construction.
