After a Golden Week filled with fun, fun and more fun, millions of tourists returned home yesterday. On the way, there was even more fun to be had.
Planes were packed, railway carriages were full, and cars were jammed across the country as travelers slowly made their way back home.
It was especially slow-going for the thousands of travelers trying to make it back to Beijing on Thursday night. Aerial footage shows an 8km long traffic jam that reportedly lasted for more than 5 hours.
We can only assume that some of those drivers took that time to relax with the tarp on.
This year’s Golden Week lived up to its name once again with 1.2 trillion yuan spent from October 1st to 7th, up 10.7% from last year. So guess, it was all worth it in the end. Back to work, everyone.
