Wuhan has a rich culture of Chinese heritage and history. Its central location connects it effectively with the four corners of China, which lends itself well for travelling around this diverse and fascinating country. Wuhan is the common disembarkation point in the world-renowned ‘Three Gorges’ river cruise. Recently, this central city has developed a fine tradition for technological and industrial advancement (for example, with foreign automotive manufacturers committing vast resources to the area). The education sector has transformed itself into one of the leading centres of academic excellence both in primary/secondary schools and universities. Consequently, Wuhan has often been compared to Chinese Tier 1 cities in terms of its innovation and ambitious plans to take the economy and infrastructure to the next level. Known as the ‘Chicago of China’, Wuhan certainly lives up to its sobriquet with excellent amenities and a first-rate health system. In addition, with its low cost of living, renowned cuisine, vibrant entertainment scene and high quality of life, Wuhan is fast becoming the city of choice for people to work and live in.
