Wuhan city guide

Things to do when you are in Wuhan:

Taste the many flavors of Wuhan

And of course, our best recommendation for getting to know Wuhan is to give it a taste. The food, that is. 

It’s a melding of flavors from Shanghai, Sichuan, and Chongqing styles. Famous dishes include hot and dry noodles and salty donuts which are popular for breakfast, and sijimei dumplings which are soup-filled buns. 

And if you feel under the weather, make sure you get some potted chicken soup to soothe your soul and get you back on the mend.

Come see Wuhan for yourself and get to know the friendliest city in China!

There are lots of universities and parks in Wuhan

One of the best ways to make friends in China is to be in a city where you can meet university students who are all excited to have a foreign friend they can learn from and share their culture with. 

Plus, that means lots of teaching opportunities for you! 

And the parks here offer something to do every day. Parks in China are more than just trees and benches like they are in the Western world and after you spend some time here you’ll forever be spoiled on the recreation you’ll find in China.  

Also, there are golf courses and tennis courts so you can practice for less than the green fees back home.

Take a cruise on the Yangtze River

Thanks to its prime location on the Yangtze River, Wuhan was China’s most prosperous city in the 19th century. 

You can take a river cruise on it and enjoy the beauty here, but if you’re more of a landlubber, you can still experience it on the First Bridge Over the Yangtze River.
