人山人海,(ren shan ren hai) is one of many four character idioms in Chinese.  It literally means people mountain people sea, and it means really really crowded.  By Chinese standards, this picture isn’t 人山人海, it is just a normal day.  When you live in the most populous country in the world, with 1.3 billion people (at last count) you get used to crowded.
