China’s railways to handle 40 million travellers during Dragon Boat Festival

China’s railway system is always busy during the holidays. The China Railway Corporation says about 40 million people are expected to take trains from June 8 through June 11. That would be an increase of more than 10 percent from a year ago.

The ridership peak will be on June 9, the start of the three-day Dragon Boat Festival. Ticket sales indicate most travellers will go to such cities as Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Wuhan to enjoy their holidays.
