Composed of three towns – Hankou, Hanyang, and Wuchang – what is now known as the city of Wuhan is placed on a picturesque riverside, beset on all sides by nature, history, and marvels of architecture. From the towering mountains of Wudang to the shores of the East Lake, there is much to experience for locals and travellers alike.

Guiyuan Temple

A temple famous for the propagation of Buddhism throughout the country, there are few sites across China that are as important or cultural. Its extensive collection of Buddhist doctrine is but a glimpse into the totality, as the architecture and sculpture are definitely aspects that shouldn’t be overlooked.

Yellow Crane Tower

Also known by the name “The First Scenery Under Heaven”, the Yellow Crane Tower is considered one of the most renowned towers in China, apparently built during the Three Kingdoms period, a time of great importance in Chinese record. Its popularity is partially due to the Chinese poet, Cui Hao, who popularized it with a poem of the same name.

East Lake

Located on the south bank of the famous Yangtze river, this lake is one of the biggest tourist attractions in Wuhan due to its scenic nature and is also one of the more conveniently located  – within reach of several shopping mall complexes, some of which contain apartments and living spaces, such as the CapitaMall Wusheng and the Somerset Wusheng Wuhan within.

Wuhan Yangtze River Bridge

Known as the first bridge over the River Yangtze, this structure was built in 1955 and was opened for public use two years later. It contains several elevators leading to sight-seeing towers for visitors to appreciate the landscape and beauty that the Yangtze river shares with the city. Visitors staying in Wuhan serviced apartments will be able to use the bridge to cross from the Wuchang to the Hanyang districts.

Mount Wudang

Often referred to as the No.1 Celestial Mountain in China, the natural splendour of Mount Wudang is truly a sight to behold. Comprising 7 peaks, 36 cliffs and 24 valleys, the unaltered beauty of the natural formation is home to many local myths and legends that state it as the home of gods, Taoists and famous hermits. The main peak labelled the Heavenly Pillar Peak, stands at a staggering 1612m, contributing to the magnificent view atop the land.
