The 2023 Spring Festival Transport will start on January 7 and end on February 15, a total of 40 days. According to China Railway Nanning Bureau Group Co., Ltd. (referred to as “Nanning Bureau Group Company”), during the Spring Festival this year, it is expected to send 12 million passengers, with an average of 300,000 passengers per day, a year-on-year increase of 48.2%.

On the same day, Huang Jingjin, a tourist from Guangxi, was waiting in line with his daughter. He took a two-hour bullet train to return home every year. He said: “With the optimization and adjustment of the epidemic prevention and control measures, now I don’t have so many worries when I go home. There are no longer restrictions, and many colleagues from other provinces also took a long vacation to go home for the New Year.”

Tonghang, a passenger who has worked in Baise City, Guangxi for more than 5 years, has not returned to his hometown for a long time. He took a bullet train from Baise City to Nanning Wuxu Airport Station, where he changed planes to his hometown of Xi’an. “I packed some local specialty bacon in my luggage, and other New Year’s goods have been sent home in advance. I am looking forward to reuniting with my family.”

According to the Nanning Bureau Group Company, Guangxi is an export area for migrant workers. Before the festival, Nanning Station mainly focuses on visiting relatives and returning home from work, and mainly flows to Beijing, Chengdu, Chongqing, Wuhan, Changsha, Kunming, Zhengzhou and various directions in Guangxi. After the festival, the main passenger flow is returning migrant workers, tourists, and students, mainly to Beijing, Shanghai, Hangzhou, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Wuhan, and Guangxi.

In addition to returning home to visit relatives, many young people choose to travel out of the province during the Spring Festival. Han Zhuang, a college student from Wuzhou City, took advantage of the winter vacation to travel to Dali, Yunnan with 4 friends for 7 days, and then returned to their hometowns for the New Year.

“I haven’t traveled for three years, and it’s been too long. Now I don’t need to do nucleic acid testing when I travel, and it’s much more convenient to go anywhere. As long as you take good personal health protection, you can travel with confidence.” Han Zhuang said.

“Post-90s” Nong Fulin also has plans to travel. He said that during the Spring Festival holiday, he plans to take his family to Guilin and other popular tourist cities in Guangxi for a few days.
