With Chinese New Year now less than a day away, China’s largest cities have seen their populations halved as millions upon millions of migrant workers celebrate Spring Festival back in their hometown.
It’s a rare week of comparative peace and quiet for those living in cities like Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Shenzhen. It also makes for some pretty spooky pics.
And also for unfettered views of the Bund for a few tourists.
