Donghu National Park, Wuhan

4.7
#2 of 10 in Nature in Wuhan
Walk through Donghu National Park, an oasis of lush vegetation in a hectic city. Numerous winding pathways provide avenues for a leisurely stroll, from which you can take in views of the park's vibrant colors. The 8.2 hectare (20 acre) sanctuary surrounds East Lake, the largest urban lake in China. Rent a paddleboat and make your way across the lake's tranquil water, or climb to the top of the park's hill for expansive views of the area. Fan Li, considered one of the country's great statesmen, allegedly lived at the park with his lover following his retirement from state duties. Put Donghu National Park into our Wuhan planning tool and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • East Lake Greenway is very suitable for cycling along the Lake winds, beautiful scenery all the way. Summer afternoon very suitable for cycling or walking, feel the breeze through the cheeks of a cozy and comfortable, people feel very relaxed. On weekends likes to take simple pastries, fruit juices and a picnic blanket, quietly listening to birds, or lying on the grass reading. Can walk alone, or take lovers or children or older family members, it is the perfect choice for leisure. East Lake Greenway takes about 28 km, moderate speed full ride about time 2.5 hours, also very suitable for exercise.

  • Like a large children's Park. Air well, besides water, you can find many details is not perfect. In particular, some corner of the pond, the entire pool water green floater is a disappointment.

  • Whether you are on foot or bike, this place is ideal for a stroll. The Park is not too crowded and you allows you to rest of the DIN around Nanmen. I advise you to go there in the spring, when flowers have hatched.

Where to stay in Wuhan

In clusters along the river sit perhaps the most popular accommodations in Wuhan. The newer, chain hotels sit together in shiny commercial districts overlooking the water, while simple guesthouses sit in the older districts, on the more atmospheric streets of the city. Away from the river, on either bank, metro stations and parks become the centers of interest for most hoteliers and guesthouses owners, with a good mix of upmarket and budget options to be found. Some of the most luxurious options in the city lie to the east of the center, including resorts and upmarket branded hotels overlooking the lake.
