Won't be travelling by train in China then!!!

Remind me, if I ever get to visit China, to never, ever, ever travel by train there!

"CHINESE new year is just days away and loved ones are going home for a reunion in the biggest movement of humanity on earth.....Adult nappy sales are soaring - up by 50pc in some parts of southern China - as migrant workers prepare for 30-hour train journeys with no chance of a trip to the lavatory. Li Tingting (30) learnt the hard way. She remembers climbing over thousands of travellers as she searched for a toilet."

My sister went to China 18 months or so ago, and recounted similar tales about trains (her stories involved copious amounts of projectile vomiting and stifling heat!).

OK, I won't go into the gory details.
