Wuhan’s battle-worn grounds and poetic riverscape have witnessed the changing times in China.

The city of Wuhan may be relatively young, having only been established in 1927, but it enjoys a rich history and is very proud of its Chu heritage. Made up of the three former cities of Hankou, Wuchang and Hanyang, Wuhan is a rapidly modernising metropolis which lays claim to being the centre of China.
