This is my birth place and home town. I have so much love for the place I can’t even stress enough.
But first the Cons, just a little warning. It is very hot! In summer days, at least 37 degrees plus on average, and it gets more humid and hotter during the night, HaHa, I hope you stay somewhere that has air conditioning.
Beware of the mosquitoes! They travel in elevators and everything, and there is lots of them, an undying breed, Good luck!
Becareful of con-artists too, haha cause people in my city are very cunning, some of them use this in a bad way, what can I say, just don’t let ur guard down.
Now to the Pros!!! The good stuff yeah~!~~
First off, the food, oh soooo cheap and delicious and spicy! I recommend the BBQ on the streets, spicy shrimp, noodles with sesame sauce , you can get these everywhere on Jiqing Street. And they open untill 4, 5 in the morning too, and always packed! What a great way to eat! For hot pots, the ones lining up on the Yangtze River side are very good, you might even find food that you would never dream of eating, but believe me, some of them, after one taste, you will be addicted! Be adventurous!
Next, the shopping and scenery, we have very cheap stuff, that is if you know how to haggle, when they say it’s 60 (RMB), it’s possible that you can get it for 20, don’t be afraid, everybody knows the rules, just haggle away with all your strength. This doesnt work in big malls though, the prices are set there.
Now the scenery , Yellow Crane Tower, Wuhan Changjiang Bridge I and II, Yangtze River, are all places you should go!
Phew, my fingers are exausted, well, I hope you guys come, and enjoy your stay. One thing is guaranteed, you will always be surrounded by the liveliness of Wuhan and its people!over 4 years ago
