Escorted Rail Tours to Wuhan

The modern, energetic city of Wuhan, capital of the Hubei Province in central China, has a history stretching back over 3,000 years. During the Han Dynasty it was a busy trading port. It became a provincial capital during the Yuan Dynasty and rose to be one of China's top four cities during the Ming and Qing dynasties.

The city was pivotal in the formation of modern China. The Wuchang uprising in 1911 was the catalyst for the Xinhai Revolution which eventually resulted in the overthrow of the Qing Dynasty and the formation of the Republic of China. There are several place names in Wuhan which start with the word "Shouyi" which means "First Revolution".

One of the city's most popular attractions is the Yellow Crane Tower, considered to be one of the four great towers in China. The Yellow Crane Tower stands on Snake Hill, overlooking the Yangtze and affording excellent views of the city. The tower is actually a recreation of an earlier tower - twelve previous incarnations of the yellow Crane Tower have stood on the same spot on Snake Hill over the course of history.
