    The style of the architecture is a non-typical Hubei(Chu state) style. The architectural design enlightens the hubei's culture. A must go.

    We went here on the Chinese Labour Day weekend. It was busy but manageable. The area has some nice gardens as well. The highlight is the tower and they have tower shaped fudgesicle ice cream which was a nice treat.

    Cost to enter is 70 RMB and one to two hours is plenty of time here.

    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.

    Beautiful campus. It is so big. Right by a huge lake, which is surrounded by gorgeous colorful lights at night. In any other city, the lights alone would be an attraction! We heard that in the spring, the streets are lined with cherry blossoms, and it is a huge local attraction. In the summer, people will swim in the lake.

    It is an important bridge of Wuhan. I think visiting at the afternoon or evening is better. You can have a great view there. You should cross the bridge on foot.

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

    So many exhibits including a large area devoted to dinosaurs and China's pre-historic period. Probably need two days to see everything comfortably.

    There are plenty of street foods and also plenty of shops such as Nike, Zara and Adidas. Pricing is on higher side.

    If you wanted to look for local food, this is the place to go. The street offers a wide range of ready cooked food - very pretty to look at. Even if you don't plan to buy, it is worth just walking through it. Please note that if you don't speak or read chinese, you will be playing a guessing game of what is that food. The street is just a short walk from the Yellow Crane Tower (maybe around 5 minutes)

    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!

    Never seen a chinese temple like this. Gothic style like a cathedral yet, all the statues are chinese. The place is not a tourist hot site, so it’s relatively quiet when I went.

    If you are into temples... I really suggest you to come here. Almost no tourists, just monks and believers. If outside is traffic, sounds, crazy sh*T going on, then inside the monastery you would be in totaly other world. So peaceful, calm, beautiful. I suggest you to go there, just to feel the buddhist spirit.

    Not many galleries, but the exhibits are of quality. The museum’s focus is on modern Chinese art (i.e. after 1900), and offers a refreshing glimpse into trends and styles. It’s hard to generalise because the artists all have individual styles, but it is fascinating how their works are modern, yet remain clearly Chinese in sensibility. Many works have social commentary embedded in them too.

    Like all art museums, the exhibits are likely to change frequently, so another day you may find very different, or even disappointing works. But that's the joy of discovery in art museums.

    I spent nearly 2 hours there.

    To get to the Hubei Museum of Art, take the metro line 4 (light green line) to Dongting station. Go up to street level using Exit A or B, both of which delivers you to Huangli Road. Walk southeast along Huangli Road for about 1 km, and you will come to a major expressway. The museum is on the opposite side of the expressway. To cross over, use the underground passageway that is on your left, directly facing the museum.

    Entry to the museum is free. It closes at 5pm.

    Almost deserted when I was there but very large area and has a huge greenhouse to explore as well. Some small snack areas inside the park selling drinks and big instant noodle bowls.

    This was a great temple to visit, with many old buildings and shady courts. Spectacular hall of golden statues, and another hall with interesting Taoist visions of Hell.
