    At the first Shanghai Get-Together I met several American expats. I am very grateful that they shared their experience with me.

Living in Wuhan

The capital of China's central Hubai Province is sometimes called "The Chicago of China", although even this flattering nickname may not do the city full justice. A city formed from three separate ancient cities, Hanyang, Hankou, and Wuchang, Wuhan is an extraordinary pastiche of ancient and modern China steeped in history and culture. As an expatriate living in Wuhan, you're equally likely to find yourself walking to work past the world's third highest skyscraper, still under construction, or the fire-like Yellow Crane Tower, the latest of a series of traditional Chinese towers that have been built on the same site over the centuries. The beautiful Guiyuan Temple, another great landmark in the city, was the first Zen Temple in Hubei Province and is still hugely popular with visitors, global minds and locals alike. Expats living in Wuhan have more temples, towers, museums and other cultural sites to see that anyone could ask for – not to mention the local shopping, cuisine and extraordinary parks.

Moving to Wuhan

It being a major regional city, expatriates moving to Wuhan can fly directly into the Wuhan Tianhe International Airport from most Chinese transport hubs and a number of other important cities such as Tokyo, Bangkok and Paris. The city is also well connected to the surrounding region by train, bus and even ferry. In fact, as a major Yangtze River port, the most adventurous expats moving to Wuhan could theoretically travel from Shanghai or Nanjing directly by boat. On arrival in the city, you should be able to find other global minds and the local international community. InterNations members can use our online private messages to easily get in touch with other expatriates in Wuhan, or even organize a local meet-up through our forums. Other expats living in Wuhan that you may be able to find on the platform can also be a great source of local information on things like accommodation, restaurants and so forth.

Working in Wuhan

On arrival as an expat working in Wuhan, you can find out all about expatriation issues like finance, repatriation and so for on the InterNations website. Our Expat Magazine is a useful resource designed to help expats set off on the right foot in their host cities and should answer most general expatriation questions and quandaries you come across. Not surprisingly, Wuhan has a strong tourism sector and is a popular destination for visitors from China and abroad, so the city is already somewhat 'expatriate friendly'. It is also an industrial center to be reckoned with, containing a number of industrial zones, a large number of universities and one international school, the Wuhan Yangtze International School. Life as an expat working in Wuhan will never cease to be vibrant and the city's industriousness as a major economic center is matched by its great after hours’ scene and its local cuisine, bars and rich, engaging culture.

    It is just so easy to find other international people and global minds with InterNations. I didn´t know there were so many in Shanghai.
