Wuhan is the capital of Hubei Province and one of the most popular cities in central China. As a city with both an ancient history and a thriving present, Wuhan served as the cradle of the brilliant Chu civilization (770 B.C. - 221 B.C.) and also as the wartime capital of China in 1937.
Wuhan today is considered as the political, economic, financial, commercial, cultural and educational center of Central China.
As located in Central China as well as in the middle reaches of the Yangtze River, Wuhan is regarded as the “thoroughfare to nine provinces”. It is very convenient to get to Wuhan from most major cities in China. You can take flight from Beijing or Shanghai to Wuhan Tianhe Airport. There are three railway stations in Wuhan, namely the Wuhan, the Hankou, and the Wuchang Railway Stations, thus you can also travel by the high-speed train from Beijing, Guangzhou, and Shanghai to any of those railway stations while enjoying the landscapes along the way.
