Wuhan Yangtze River Bridge, Wuhan

4.0
Marvel at the impressive engineering of Wuhan Yangtze River Bridge, the first highway and railway bridge over the river. Providing an important crossing over the 6,300 km (3,915 mi) long Yangtze, the bridged opened in 1957 after two years of construction. The structure spans 1.6 km (1 mi), with observation spots on either end. Contemplate the Soviet influence in its concrete, cantilevered design, which involved the assistance of some 28 engineers from the USSR. From the bridge itself, watch ships coming and going, and admire the architecture of the city from a new perspective.

  • The most interesting of the Long river bridge ... The first is to see the Wuhan in the mud Yellow River on the long swim, for me it is brave to say ... The second is to walk on the bridge, because the car and the train, the bridge is always in the earthquake, walking on the can not help but "shaking".

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.
