Lunar New Year travellers settle in as they board a train bound for the southwestern Chinese city of Chongqing, a journey of 32 hours, at the West Railway Station in Beijing on January 31, 2013. The world's largest annual migration is underway in China with tens of millions across China boarding trains to journey home for Lunar New Year celebrations. Passengers will log 220 million train rides during the 40-day travel season as they criss-cross the country to celebrate with their families on February 10, but just as making the trip home can be laborious -- often lasting one or two days -- so can simply acquiring a seat on the train, and every year complaints arise about the inefficiency or unfairness of the system, although an initiative allowing travelers to purchase tickets online aims to curb long queuing times.
