China prepares for holiday theft surge

By in News on

As Spring Festival – also known as Chinese New Year – draws nearer, many Chinese are receiving their year-end bonuses and preparing for the journey home to celebrate the beginning of the lunar year, the most important holiday of the year in China.

With 179 million people expected to travel by train this year, many carrying cash and valuables, the holiday is also a major opportunity for pickpockets and thieves. Holiday travelers are being warned to be vigilant against theft, especially in crowded areas such as train stations - ATMs are also popular places for thieves to operate.

As this CCTV report puts it: Don't be cheated.
