Things to Do 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!

Unlike other cities you may find work in when you move to China, you will find that Beijing has one of the best and friendliest expat groups in the country. The crowd is diverse too, with people hailing from different backgrounds and careers. It’s not all the teachers so you’ll meet other people who can help you and have an interesting array of friends.
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.
