    We visited Wuhan (one of the four furnace cities in China famous for intense Summer heat) in July. It's very hot everywhere in the city. We had to go out in the morning/night and stay indoor in the afternoon. We enjoyed a morning walk along Dong Hu Lv Dao in East Lake. I love their scenic views, lotus flowers, and cool breeze along the lake. They have nice pedestrian walkways along the lake. Plenty of tree shades and benches made it a very relaxing and enjoyable walk. The park is huge. If you don't want to walk, there are shuttles (not free) going around the park. The shuttle routes and transfer stations are a bit confusing. We had to ask for people's help. Luckily Wuhan people are very friendly, so we did not have any trouble finding our way at all.

    Fun to spend the afternoon here. Can purchase inexpensive kites to fly. Beach along the river is very coarse sand

    We can call it amazing, awesome and impressive place in such a big city as Wuhan. The entrance is free, although it`s not allowed to enter with car or bike. But it`s a great opportunity to walk around East Lake, to discover such places as Monkey Mountain, Plum Hill, Crape Myrtle Garden, Taiyu Bridge, Double Ropeway and other scenic areas. The place is suitable as for individuals, as for couples and groups (no matter of size). Prepare your food and beverage, because on your way it could be difficult to find any snacks. If you really fan of nature, this is right match for you!

    Very good place to take a walk. The park is huge. You can ride a bicycle or walk. We visited the place in the winter so with the low temperature is not so good. During the spring/summer you can do some activities.

    If looking for a moment to relax or enjoy a cool breeze, head for Zhongshan Park. Many local carry out numerous activities there like dancing etc.

    It has a nice selection of animals and the panda and red panda section are fantastic, there is a walk through tour of their evolution and history- it is new and very modern, with great living quarters for the pandas.
    However the other animals have much poorer living quarters with many under fed and in run down and over crowded cages (especially the monkeys). Some of the animals seemed very lifeless.
    But it is a nice park and work is underway to renovate the living quarters of the animals. The lake and area is pleasant especially on a nice day.
    Recommend if it’s a nice day as it is cheap (¥20) but it is not like European zoos.

    This park memoralizes Yu the Great, the Xia Emporer who dedicated his life to taming the Yellow River. The park stretches along the banks of the Yangtze, from the Qingchuan Cabinet to under the Yangtze River Bridge. Large natural stones have been sculpted with scenes of Yu's life, and there is a massively carved frieze of yellow marble which includes a bronze sculpture of dragon-horses carrying Yu to survey his work. There is a riverboat landing for catching one of the smaller, less crowded boats that cross the river and take you below Hu Bu Xiang (Snack Alley). This is your chance to put your feet in the Yangtze, as a paved area and steps take you to the water's edge. Graceful light poles which are made with shades in the image of the nearby Qingchuan Cabinet temple line the stone pathways. Stop for refreshments in air-conditioned comfort at the juice and coffee shop located behind the carved frieze. Other sculptures fill this very large park which is ideal for flying kites, renting a 3-wheeled bike, and viewing boats as they ply the river.

    I took fast train from Hk (West kowloon station), about 790/-HKD. 4 hr 50 mins journey time with 3 stops (shenzhen, Guangzhou, Changsha),
    Once reach Wuhan Station , transfer to local Metro line and take Line 4 to Huangjinkou station (in total its about 27 stops-1 hour almost)fare price is 8 yuan.
    You can taxi or local khwadee taxi to Jianzhenshan forest park.
    Its about 40 mins, Its just lovely forest area with beautiful lake and climb about 30 mins to steps 399 in count at the top. Lovely Lake with back drp sunset not to miss!
    Also please check Wudang shan mountain, need atleast 3 to 4 days for it,
    its about 4 hours taxi or bus travel from wuhan station to base of Wudan mountain. The hike climb is about. I had short time so i couldn't visit..will return to wuhan for specially Wudang mountain.
    you can also fly by Air to wuhan from HK or shenzhen airports.
    Keep good chinese to english translator to avoid the issue of communication

    Part of the Yellow Crane Tower attraction this is a very nice area to walk around. The entry fee is 80rmb for adults, and the large bell can be rung if you like for a charge. The area is quite hilly so not the best if you have a disability. The gardens are very nice and peaceful even thought there are a lot of visitors here. Worth a visit if you are in Wuhan.

    There are ample grounds to walk through, and to enjoy. There is also one large enclosed structure that has many biomes represented. The orchid display is great, the cacti wonderful, and much more. Plan on an hour or two just inside!

    One of the East lake featured areas that I like. Doesn't involve too much walking to see the good stuff, has a few activities like boating, and some sort of wind gliding activity, swimming I wouldn't recommend and has a small sculpture park, kool for an afternoon stroll and its free. As a plus there are the Hubei provincial and art museums nearby so take a day and try to hit all three.

    A well-maintained place with many polar animals. Don't miss the animal shows. The best one is the dolphin and beluga whale show in the main theatre. There are also sea lion show, walrus show etc. The ticket is comparatively expensive. For an adult its 170RMB and for a child 130RMB. This package includes all the animals, shows and play area except the area called 'deep storm'. Avoid it at all costs. The ticket to that area can be purchased for 35RMB with the main package or 50RMB at the gate of that area. This area only contains some places to take photos, nothing else.
