Wuhan is the capital of the Hubei province in eastern-central China, at the confluence of the middle reaches of the Yangtze and Han rivers. It comprises three distinct cities: Wuchang, Hankou, and Hanyang. Because Wuhan is the most populous city in central China, it is the main transportation hub. Commercial railroads, passenger rail, bus networks, and airplanes connect through here to most other major cities in China.
Wuhan (and its three original cities) has over 3,500 years of history. It is one of the most ancient civilisations in China. One of the most important battles in the Three Kingdoms took place near Wuchang. From the Tang dynasty onward, Wuhan was one of the most important arts culture in China and by the time of the Yuan dynasty (Mongol rule) it was an education centre and am important trade city.
You can get here by flying to the Wuhan Tianhe International Airport. It connects with most other Chinese airports and is the fourth busiest airport in China. There are a ton of hostels in Wuhan. Most of the hostel accommodation is centred around the Yangtze River or the East Lake. The word for “hostel” in Chinese is pronounced “su-she” and the characters are 宿舍.
Wuhan’s leading attraction is the Hubei Provincial Museum, which has over 200,000 artefacts from the region’s history, including the bell chime from the Zeng Hou Yi, a bronze instrument dating back 2,000 years. At one time, it was considered the eighth wonder of the world! If you need to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, go to East Lake. It is the largest lake within city limits in China and has lots of gardens and walking trails where you can get away from the city.
For cheap foods, don’t miss Jiqing Street, which has street vendors and performers; sometimes there are free evening performances. If you’re looking for something a little more upscale, head to the Chu River and Han Street dining and shopping precinct. It’s popular with both travellers and local Chinese alike.
