Wuhan is also called "River City" as the Yangtze and Han rivers separate Wuhan into three areas: Hankou, Wuchang and Hanyang. Long ago, the modernization movement led to this place having a number of first-class factories. The century-old buildings of Hankou bore witness to the growing prosperity of that time. The Wuchang Uprising of 1911 here marked the establishment of the Warlord Era. Currently, Wuhan's many institutions of higher education completely suffuse the area with vitality. Optics Valley, a software park in the free-trade zone, also has become one of new Wuhan's core locations. Tanhualin Art Village and Hanyang Art Zone are two places highly unlikely to disappoint young artistic types. The cherry blossoms of Wuhan University and East Lake in the spring attract the interest of countless tourists. Reganmian (hot dry noodles) and duck's neck are both traditional local delicacies. You should not miss the opportunity to try either of them. Lounging over a rich breakfast is a good way to spend the morning and a better way to get an idea of the way in which the people of Wuhan live.


1, Sun Yat-sen Mausoleum (Zhongshan Ling)

It is great to pay respect to Dr Sun Yat-sen, the creator of Communist China. The Sun Yat-sen Mausoleum is a great insight into China's history and it is very pretty. There are almost 400 steps to get to Dr Sun Yat-sen’s final resting place and statue at the top of the hill. It is easy to climb with benches on each platform to relax. The sight at the top is nice; you can enter the mausoleum and you can walk around his statue. There are also plenty of shaded areas in which to simply sit and rest.

2, Xuanwu Lake

Walking around the lake is a nice way to escape the loud and busy city. It is a tranquil place to unwind and relax with plenty of green scenery and fresh air. It is harmonious, quiet, clean and beautiful. Watching the sunset where the skyline meets the lake is a Nanjing experience you will want to see for yourself. Alternatively, boating on the lake is a good way to enjoy the great views of the city skyline. For an affordable price you can rent a paddle boat and explore the lake in a whole different way.

The best time to visit is in July when the lotus flowers are in full bloom and standing almost six feet tall in the lake.

3, Presidential Palace of Nanjing

The Presidential Palace was the political center during the Opium War and the Liberation War from 1840 to 1949. It is the largest museum of modern history, also a typical South China classic garden with pavilions, trees and lakes. It is a nice place to learn history and relax.

There are three exhibition areas for tourists. In the middle is the national government office of the president and subsidiary bodies. The west area is the office of the temporary president, his secretary, Joint Chiefs of Staff and garden. In the east area, are the executive council, barns and gardens.


4, Jiming Temple

It is a very nice Buddhist temple built in the Three Kingdoms period. It is close to Xuanwu Lake and a part of the city wall. The view from the city wall is gorgeous; you can go to the top of the wall from the temple and get good photos.

Inside the temple complex there are a few typical Chinese pavilions with Buddha images, awesome pictures, paintings, and sculptures to see.
