Wuhan(武汉; Wǔhàn) is an interesting large city in the inland central area of China that somehow feels less modernized than China’s coastal cities or Beijing, but it is one of China’s main high-tech, education and financial centers. It is China’s 10th largest city. It is interesting for tourists because there are scenic areas and the big Yangtze River. The people are unusually cordial to foreigners. Because it is right in the middle of the navigable part of the Yangtze River between Shanghai on the coast and Sichuan and Chongqing far to the west, it has long been a transportation hub. The old town of Hankou that is now a part of modern Wuhan was China’s second largest commercial center after Shanghai during the 1800s and early part of the 1900s. Prices for meals and transportation are low, transportation to the city is unusually convenient, and it is an interesting tourist destination and a good place to start a tour of the Yangtze River basin.

Wuhan is now the capital of Hubei Province that is an inland province. It has a population of about 10 million people in its administrative area, with about 6,000,000 people in the main urban area and about 4,000,000 people in surrounding suburbs and towns. It is divided into three parts by the Yangtze River and Han River. The Wuchang district is the education center with many universities and research centers, the Hankou area is the financial and business district, and the Hanyang district is the industrial center.

This city has a certain charm about it. The people are unusual friendly compared to those in other cities. And if you have the time for a cruise, you might really enjoy going up the Yangtze on a cruise liner.
