In this photo by Andy Wong, workers clean the windows of the main entrance of the Beijing railway station as travelers wait for trains to head to their hometowns to celebrate the Lunar New Year. People showed up early to get tickets and pass through security checks with their huge bags and boxes of dried food. Many of those leaving Beijing during the busy travel season are migrant workers who visit their hometowns only once a year. The transport ministry projected Lunar New Year travelers will make 295 million railway trips and 47 million plane trips this year. The holiday begins the Year of the Sheep on the Chinese zodiac.
