We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way!

After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

Wuhan is at the intersection of the middle reaches of the Yangtze River and the Hanjiang River, hence the name of "the City of Rivers and Lakes".

Wuhan is a historical city with a history of over 3500 years. China's Chu culture starts here. The city was prised open to the foreign trade in 19th century by the Treaty of Nanjing. Today you still can find the colonial buildings in the former foreign concessions along Yanjiang Road and Jianghan Road. The 1911 Xinhai Revolution first broke out in the city of Wuhan, which sparkled the beginning of the end for the Qing Dynasty.

Wuhan has rich tourist resources and within a few hours'drive, you have an easy access to the Unesco World Heritage-crowned Wudang Mountains. Wuhan has an advantageous position in transportation thanks to its central location in China. Within five hours, by high-speed trarns from Wuhan, you will reach Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Hong Kong.

Whether you are a leisure or business travler, Wuhan is worth your exploring for quite a few days. This is the one-stop place for planning your trip to Wuhan no matter you are a very independent traveler or local travel agency frequent user.
