TripAdvisor Reviews Yazhou Qiyuan Wuhan
Travel Blogs from Wuhan
And onto Wuyuan. A small town by Chinese standards - about 300,000 people. Its about 400km south east of Wuhan, or should I say a six hour bus ride. It's set in a hilly area of China and was my chance to see a bit of the countryside as scattered around the city are lots of old Huizhou villages where the traditional rural life still goes on. The first day here I headed out to one about 40 km east - Xiaoqi. Dates back to 787, or so the sign said. Lots of old houses and ...

But it wasn't too bad as we got to spend the day in Wuhan, a city I'd wanted to visit for ages and which is actually quite attractive. It was also steaming hot, and humid as a Swedish sauna.

arrived on board, we discovered that more than half of the people on the cruise
had been delayed several hours in Shanghai due to weather! They eventually
arrived that evening, but had missed the museum completely. Dinner was tasty
and we ordered from 5 choices on the menu. I had a lemon sole with a lovely
sauce and Dale had some pork ribs. We dined with the Aussies from our group.
