If the term “claustrophobia” was defined by a single YouTube video, this one filmed inside the Xierqi Beijing Subway station would be it.
The video’s description states that the morning rush hour on line 13 of the Beijing Subway is “just a little bit crowded.” However, considering the sheer amount of people on the platform trying to get in an already packed subway train, it’s clearly a gross understatement.
The Beijing Subway is the busiest subway system in China and the fourth-busiest in the world. Despite its rapid expansion into many parts of China’s capital, the Beijing Subway can’t keep with the growing number of people who use it every day and the video above is proof.
