STUDY IN WUHAN
Tianhe International Airport (WUH)
A 20-kilometer speedway drive from the Tianhe International Airport (WUH) to the city center takes only twenty minutes. Airport shuttle buses leave for the city following flight arrivals. From the airport to Hankou, the bus will charge 17 yuan per person, and 32 per person for Wuchang; a taxi ride to the city area is about 80-120 yuan.
Wuhan has a cheap (usually 2rmb per journey), efficient, but horribly bewildering bus system in place. The service has vastly improved compared to the past. It is the cheapest way to get around the city. If you have a local to guide you, it can be used to get from place to place with impressive speed (if not comfort or safety). Without a local to guide you, you should better have a very good map and a good grasp of Chinese.
Wuhan has a subtropical monsoon climate with four distinct seasons. The ideal travel months here are March-April, and September-October. Visitors are advised to avoid the scorching summer period of July and August with its 40 °C (104 °F) heat, and the cold winter time from November to later January with its severe cold. Another weather caution is the summer period from June to August with its heavy rain.
Hubei cuisine features lightly spiced flavoring and strong tastes, delicious soups and delicate fish dishes.
Wuhan Cuisine is also known for its unique methods of preparing delicacies from land and sea, freshwater fish and soup.
Famous dishes include Steamed Wuchang Fish, Mianyang Three Steamed Dishes, Xiaotaoyuan Soup, Wangji Chicken Soup, Hongshan Vegetable Bolts, Dongpo Pork and others.
Yellow Crane Tower

Modern architecture views for interest with historic sites. The bund area in Hankou, the famous waterfront along the Han River is a bustling commercial section with colonial style architecture, bars and pubs. At night this is the hub of Wuhan nightlife. Two other shopping streets in Zhongshan Dadao and Jiefang Dadao are also popular
