China: Wuhan

China: Wuhan

story by: Inspire Hong Kong & China

This major centre actually combines three cities – Wuchang, Hankou and Hanyang – and its name is created from parts of each. Aside from the massive Yangtze River Bridge, its famous landmarks include the five-storey yellow Crane Tower atop Snake Hill and the Guiyuan Temple, one of China’s biggest Zen Buddhist monasteries.

As the “other” major embarkation or disembarkation point for Yangtze River cruises, Wuhan is essentially an important port on China’s tourist trail.

Its famous landmarks which include the Yangtze River Bridge and five-storey high Yellow Crane Tower are matched by city characteristics which combine new and old elements.

Not far from the famous Guiyuan Temple, one of China’s largest Zen Buddhist monasteries with roots to the late Ming and early Qing dynasties, are streets lined with fascinating handicraft stores, an interesting array of eateries and fashionable boutiques.

There’s also a rich collection of archaeological artefacts, many dating back to 474-221 BC – bronze, lacquer-ware, musical instruments, gold, jade and ancient weapons
