Wuhan

Wuhan is situated at the confluence of the Yangtze River and its greatest branch, the Hanjiang, Wuhan (population 8 million), the provincial capital of Hubei, is one of the major economic and industrial cities in China. 

Although today there is little indication of the important historical and cultural role the city once played, in fact, Wuhan was one of the most politically crucial spots in the nation, when the Guomintang moved the capital here from Guangzhou in 1927. After the foundation of the People's Republic of China, Wuhan was directly under the control of the Central Government and under provincial control by 1954.

Located in the very center of China, and known as one of China's "Three Furnaces" (due to the incredible heat pervading in the summer months), Wuhan is a HUGE metropolis, divided into three separate districts, each the size of a small city in itself. This is also an important domestic and foreign commercial port and the center of industry, finance, commerce, science and education for central China. With the development of the Yangtze Valley, Wuhan is becoming increasingly important both in domestic and international terms, specifically as an important education and scientific research base, due largely to the sizeable university and student population here and local governmental efforts to promote this as a premier business and commercial destination.

Wuhan is composed of the three towns of Wuchang, Hankou, and Hanyang.  The three towns, separated by the Yangtze and Hanshui rivers,a re linked by bridges, and because these municipalities are so closely connected by waterways, Wuhan is also called the "city on rivers." Being the largest inland port on the middle reaches of the Yangtze River and a major stop on the Beijing-Guangzhou Railway, Wuhan is one of China's most important hubs of water and rail transportation and communications.
