We can help you with any of your travel needs, including free and impartial advice from others who have traveled around China themselves.
What's more, we will happily recommend to you the various sights Wuhan has to offer. Wuhan was originally three cities on the banks of two rivers, now combined into a single, modern, city. However, the three separate areas have retained their individuality, and a trip around Wuhan can be a charming experience - one which you are unlikely to forget.
The more famous sights include the Yellow Crane Tower, overlooking the Yangtze River and giving a commanding view of much of the city; Hubei Provincial Museum, which is free to visit and which holds over 200,000 artifacts, and also features musical performances on replica ancient chimes and bells; and the Changchun Temple, a peaceful and elegant Taoist temple, which also has a famous and acclaimed vegetarian restaurant attached to it.
In addition, the food in Wuhan is not to be missed, and we are able to direct you to some of the best places to eat in the area. For your convenience, we also have a very good restaurant and bar facilities within the hostel, so you needn't go anywhere if you'd rather stay home and rest!
