In the 3,500 years since it was founded, the city now known as Wuhan has nurtured the Chu culture and become the central seat of its Chinese region, Hubei. The 8 million inhabitants of this nexus of education and technology support a thriving foodie culture: Guests at our Wuhan hotels can eat alongside locals in restaurants or on food streets like Ji Qing and Qiaokou, both of which are home to a variety of vendors and lively activity.
Perhaps the most exciting landmark for those staying in our Wuhan accommodations is the Yellow Crane Tower, on the banks of the Yangtze River. Re-envisioned in 1985, the current version of the tower is much taller and larger than the original, which was constructed in 223 A.D.
A hotel room in Wuhan is also the perfect starting point for a pilgrimage to the Guiyuan Temple, where Buddhists have worshipped since 1658. Other historically significant sites in and around the city of Wuhan include the enormous Hubei Provincial Museum, close to the grand East Lake, the Rock and Bonsai Museum, and China’s recently founded National Stone Museum. And if you run out of things to do in Wuhan, take a scenic train ride across the Chinese countryside!
