I never went downtown during a holiday.
My hometown is the most popular tourist destination in China, both for Chinese and foreigners.
There will be millions of visitors rushing into this small city during a festival. So basically I will give the downtown to our guests during these special days.
But last night I spontaneously drove to the city center and immediately regretted my recklessness.
The traffic was jammed badly. Streets were turned into some huge parking lots.
I spent half an hour advancing 500 meters.
It was painful.
I quickly took a shortcut to go home and reached my apartment after a two-hour ordeal.
I swear I will not go downtown during any holiday again!
