BEST WESTERN PREMIER Wuhan Mayflowers Hotel
Travel Blogs from Wuhan
Wuhan is one of the so-called 'three furnaces' of China (the other two are Chongqing and Nanjing) and this time of year is the 'da shu' period on the Chinese calendar, meaning the peak of Summer. Small wonder our overwhelming impression of the city was: "Holy smokes, this place is HOT!"
On Thursday afternoon we dragged ourselves out of the …
China's fast expanding high-speed rail network is one of the awe-inspiring feats of this developing economy, not in the least due to the futuristic railway stations that come with the slick Shinkansen-style trains.
To get to Shanghai, Ine took the recently opened high-speed railway from Beijing to Shanghai, which took her over a distance …
... was definitely smog. By mid-day, we were able to catch glimpses of the sun trying to break through the dense smog layer. As the day wore on, I could begin to feel my head becoming more cloudy from breathing in the particles. I was amazed at how people could live in a city such as Yueyang and not be able to see the sun on an average day. Yueyang is a relatively small (population of 3 million) port city located between Wuhan and Chongqing on the Yangtze. ...

Ok so we had a REALLY early wake-up call - 4:30 for a 5:15 departure from the hotel! We got a fairly decent box breakfast (boiled egg, croissant, yogurt, orange and water), which we scarfed down while trying to connect on their terrible wifi.

TravelPod Member ReviewsBEST WESTERN PREMIER Wuhan Mayflowers Hotel
This hotel probably wouldn't get 5 stars elsewhere, but the amenities were just fine. Our room was clean, the bathroom spotless, the people at the reception spoke passable English. The swimming pool wasn't fit for a whole lot of swimming and it was sweltering hot under its greenhouse structure so poolside reading was out of the question, but one could still spend a pleasurable hour there. On the whole, a good place to spend a few nights.
