Wuhan ([ù.xân] (About this soundlisten); simplified Chinese: 武汉; traditional Chinese: 武漢) is the capital of Hubei province, People’s Republic of China. It’s the most populous city in Central China,[16] and one of the nine National Central Cities of China. It lies in the eastern Jianghan Plain on the middle reaches of the Yangtze River’s intersection with the Han river. Arising out of the conglomeration of three cities, Wuchang, Hankou, and Hanyang, Wuhan is known as ‘China’s Thoroughfare’ [zh]; it is a major transportation hub, with dozens of railways, roads and expressways passing through the city and connecting to other major cities. Because of its key role in domestic transportation, Wuhan is sometimes referred to as “the Chicago of China” by foreign sources.
