Exploring Wuhan’s Famous Yellow Crane Tower

One of the famous sights in Wuhan is the Yellow Crane Tower (黄鹤楼), on top of Snake Hill. The story goes, a crane danced on top of the tower and it inspired Cui Hao to write his poetry. The crane has long flown but the five-storey tower still offers amazing views of the Yangzi River, Wuchang, Hankou and Hanyang.

Chinese cities are huge and very spread out. Just when you think you are finally in the city centre, you realize it’s just another suburb! The traffic never ceases to amaze me—streets are constantly jammed, and cars honk their way through, bumping into each other. I guess at least speeding isn’t an issue here!
