Every year, more than 400-thousand migrant workers in the province choose to ride home on motorcycles, because it is so difficult to get a train ticket at this time of year. Also, the cost of riding motorcycle is much lower. 40 percent of the riders take their family home by motorcycle as well. Most of the motorcyclists are from surrounding regions. Those living in neighboring Guangxi can get home in a couple of hours. For those living in Sichuan, Guizhou, Hunan and Jiangxi, the journey can take as long as four days.
