Thieves and bandits on the rapid train.
By GUNNARF11 | 9/27/2012 5:05:32 AM

My wife traveled yesterday (September 26 -12) from Wuhan to Guangzhou. Many people on the train and therefore the bags prepared at a location near the exit. At the stop in Changsha "arranged" a panic at the end of the train and bags disappeared. Among other things, my wife's bag, size large carry-on bag. This included new expensive clothes, which were gifts from relatives and friends. There were also specialty "Wuhanfisk" that she would bring to Sweden.
Leagues know the value found in bags on trains is much louder than the regular train.
They're not the poor people who go speed train. If you have a bigger bag for the trip, it is better to take flight, even if it gets longer time with the connections.

Train travel is cheap, but first you must book your compartment early so your bunk is on a lower
level. Some stations have only stairs, no escalators, so avoid heavey luggage. The toilets are an
abomination, bring a small spray of perfume. Look for Red Caps if your luggage is heavey. Beware
of individuals who offer to take you some place at a cheaper rate. Use only City Taxi Cabs.
Trains that travel over 600 miles leave in the evening, and you arrive in the morning. As soon as I get
on the train, I stow my luggage under my bunk and go to bed. If you don't, the people in the upper
bunks will use your bed to sit on. You don't want that.
There are places you can buy train tickets to avoid the lines and confusion at the Station Ticket windows.
You must inquire about that. This will also insure you a lower bunk.

Some city-buses are self-srvice with a charge of CNY1-CNY1.2, but for these CNY1.2, if you donot have the loosen changes 0.2, CNY1 is ok sometimes.

Just wanted to let you know that is usually quite out of date. Most of the places I have tried to go to are gone, so proceed with caution.

Avoid busses after 5:00 p.m in Wuchang
By WINDENERGY | 4/5/2007 6:43:34 AM

Due to road construction and snarled traffic, you should make your travel plans early when traveling into and out of Wuchang. Busses are so crowded, you'll be lucky to find yourself standing on the entry steps for the long ride to hankou or Hai Yang.

Avoid the bus from 5:00-6:30 p.m.

Ify ou aretravelinginto Wuhan ,be aware that there are too many people for the public transportation system to handle. Busses, during evening rush hour are almost impossible to catch. If you do, you'll be standing next tothe driver and having to get real cozy being close to people. Cabs are even difficult to catch during this time. So, I recommend not going anywhere during the rush hour. Find a good restaurant, or bar, and relax.

If you end up in Wuhan
By CSHANSELLO | 4/12/2007 9:32:42 PM

Hi all,

I have been living in Wuhan for a few months now, and I have to say I don't recommend Wuhan as a place to visit, considering how much more amazing so many other places in China are. There simply isn't that much to visit here, or at least nothing better that what I have seen in other cities in China. If you do come to Wuhan, try to stay in Hankou, or near the Yellow Crane Tower in Wuchang. Wuhan is very big, and hard to get around, so it's imporant that you stay in a good location. After tireless searching, here is what I have found to do in Wuhan if you find yourself here:

1) Walking/Shopping street in Hankou: Almost entirely clothing shops, and not as interesting as equivalent shopping streets in other towns.

2) The Yangtze River and Bridge: Very interesting to see the river and walk across the bridge. I recommend this if you are in Wuhan

3) The Yellow Crane Tower: Near the Bridge, so you could do this in one day. Rebuilt recently, but pretty. If you're short on cash, the view is about the same from outside the park.

4) Breakfast street: Also near the YC Tower and Bridge. Very good food, best I have found in Wuhan. I recommend the BBQ oysters covered in garlic. I was nervous that they would make me sick, but I had no problems. They cook them for you after you order.

5) East Lake Park: Decent park, very big, but not that pretty. I recommend a sled ride up and down the mountain (a little scary, but again no problems).

6) Gui Yuan temple, and the Rock Museum across the street from the entrance: The temple in mediocre for Chinese temples, but the thousand Buddha hall is interesting. I preferred the rock museum. I thought I was walking into a tourist trap, but it was great. Only 10 Yuan, and you can see dinosaur bones, great bonsai displays, and very interesting rocks in a beautiful old courtyard home.

Good luck with your travels!

Barbecue at late night
By ALICEGAO | 9/28/2006 5:03:06 AM

People in Wuhan are very good at eating, 'coz there're too many delicious food and snacks here. They even won't waste the time at late night, haha… And the barbecue is the best choice, lots of friends just hang out together, and sit around a small (exactly, tiny and low table) piled up with lots of dishes, and decorated with bottled beer.
It's not the good place to be elegance and shy, but absolutely the very place to eat good food and enjoy friendship.
