    Interesting Museum which houses ancient bronze age bells unearthed 2000 years ago from a huge tomb. The museum has a facsimile set that they play which is worth seeing/hearing. Can do the entire site ...  more »

    Didn't have much time to spend at the place but it has some impressive pieces of history. I wished there were more English explanations in the signage but I managed to get by. They do have these intro printouts (some of which are in English).

    Limited in scope. I particularly enjoy pottery and the pottery from the Ming Dynasty is particularly stunning.

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.
