Wuhan Tianhe International Airport is the biggest airport in central China, located 26km northwest of Wuhan. There are daily flights linking Wuhan and numerous other destinations in China.
Wuhan consists of three districts: Wuchang, Hankou and Hanyang. Each district has its own railway station serving different destinations across China. If you are heading north (to Beijing) along the Jingguang railway, trains arrive and depart from the Hankou station, if you are going south (to Guangzhou) use the station in Wuchang. If you are heading for or coming from Chengdu, Chongqing and other western cities, you will probably arrive or depart from Wuchang railway station.
If you are heading for Jiangxi province and further on to Anhui, Zhejiang and Shanghai, Hankou station is where your train will leave from and arrive at. Wuhan has three main railway lines; the Jingguang railway (from Beijing to Guangzhou), the Handan Railway (Hankou to Danjiangkou and on to Chongqing and Chengdu), and Wujiu railway (from Wuchang to Jiujiang and further to Shanghai). The two major railway stations are in Wuchang and Hankou.
Transportation to Wuhan by bus is fairly convenient. New express routes have been constructed in the past year and destinations as far away as Nanjing and Shanghai can be reached on an overnight trip. In Hankou, the major station is on Jiefang da dao at the intersection of Youyi Lu. This is the biggest station in the city and buses to some northern cities leave and arrive from here. In Wuchang, the bus station is on Wu Luo Lu. Buses to some southern cities leave and arrive from here. Buses for Nanjing, Shanghai and Hefei leave from both stations.
Wuhanis situated along the edge of the Yangtze river, and there are now passenger ships between Wuhan and Shanghai and Wuhan and Chongqing.
Getting about in Wuhan itself can be a tiresome and lengthy task. The city is huge and although there are numerous buses here plying the routes between Hankou, Wuchang and Hanyang, the traffic here is very crowded. It can take a good two hours to cross from one side of the city to the other. Taxis here are fairly expensive.
