In 2000 the municipality authorities transformed Hanzheng Jie into a tourist shopping paradise. Dazzling shops and stores housed in traditional buildings sell various goods. Today it is the largest wholesale distribution center in central China. Tourists are invited to find inexpensive items, althoug they are still cautioned about quality.

Baotong Temple (Bao Tong Si, 宝通寺) is situated almost entirely on the hillside. The temple is quite an impressive architectural accomplishment. It is fairly difficult to see the temple from afar, because it is partly hidden by thick vegetation.

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.
After daytime tour, would you like seat on the boat to see the night scene of Yangtze River and both side Wu Chang and Han Kou. I'd like to introduce some places around the Jiangtze River.
