Tourpocalypse? Tourpocalypse

Golden Week crowds 1

We’re going to borrow Alia of Offbeat China’s word for the crowds during National Day holiday — “tourpocalypse” — because these pictures make us judder, indeed as if the ground will swallow us, no longer able to hold the weight of all this humanity.

This happens every year, and all we can do is… be happy we’re not dead?

Additional images are from Southern Metro Daily via Shanghaiist.
