Wuhan

Being the capital of Hubei Province, Wuhan is situated at the crossroads of central China. In the past, parts of the city were prone to flooding, but thanks to the Three Gorges Dam, that is no longer the case. Today Wuhan becomes an important hub in central China and features Yangtze River cruises for sightseers and businessmen traveling from Sichuan to Shanghai or Hong Kong.

Wuhan CityWuhan a city surrounded by beautiful mountains, rivers, lakes and hills, and with a rich history. Sliced in three by the mighty Yangtze River, Wuhan is actually a conglomeration of what were once three independent cities: Hankou, Hanyang and Wuchang. This is the place to find both history and natural wonders. It is the city's favorable geographic location that partly explains its industrial success, and has contributed to its rich and colorful history. Wuhan's history dates back 3,500 years. It was once the center of the ancient State of Chu, and has always been an important spot on the mighty Yangtze River. From Wuhan, merchants followed the great river and extensive water networks to expand their businesses throughout the entire region.

Wuhan's cuisine is also worth a try. Most of the places here serve a good mixture of eastern Sichuan cuisine and more oily braised dishes. Beware however, as the emphasis in terms of spice and chili tends to be more, Wuhan cuisine can be very hot. Fish and shellfish are especially good. Steamed Wuchang Fish is one of the most famous dishes in Wuhan and known far and wide. Fried Bean Curd Sheets stuffed with three delicacies are a classic Wuhan breakfast. Hot-dry noodles are an essential part of the Wuhan diet, eaten by almost everyone daily at breakfast time. Yellow Crane Tower

Yellow Crane Tower(Huanghe Lou)

Nestled on the bank of the Yangtze River, Yellow Crane Tower is famed as one of the three great towers of China, featured by stiff uprightness, uniqueness and magnificence. It is a symbol of Wuhan and was originally constructed in 223 AD. A number of literators in the past dynasties visited the tower and wrote down numerous immortal masterpieces on it. The present Tower was rebuilt during 1981 and 1985. It retains some features of the ancient one and adds new elements according to the modern people's aesthetic requirement, which is a perfect combination of classical asnd modern characteristics. The 5-story pagoda standing on top of Snake Hill, overlooking Wuhan and the Yangtze River, will give you a magnificent view . When seen vertically, eaves on every floor have direct bearing on the name of the tower, that is, the interveined and overlapped roofs of all sizes with flying eaves look like the wings of about-to-fly cranes. Both internal and external parts of the tower are painted with patterns cored with red-crown cranes and foiled with clouds, flowers, grass, dragons and phoenixes.
