Hubei Province Guide
Wuhan is situated along the edge of the Changjiang (Yangtze, 长江) River. Ferries are available to Shanghai, Chongqing and other riverside cities. There are 18 ferry routes in the city, of which there are three fast line routes. There is also a sightseeing tour on the Yangtze river. You can board the ferry at a two different ferry docks (Zhonghua road in Wuhang or WuhanGuan in Hankou). This means of transportation is pretty cheap, safe, and excellent for visitors who are interested in the natural landscape and a bit of fresh air.
Located at No. 209 Xianggang Road (香港路) is a large art and antiques market. An array of stalls and stores sell traditional Chinese folk artwork, chops, curios, Chinese paintings, calligraphy, furniture, jade and other treasures from centuries past. Both locals and travelers enjoy searching for favorites in a sea of choices.
