Climbing to the top of the Yellow Crane Tower or enjoying the cherry blossoms on the Wuhan University campus are all good options when traveling in Wuhan.

Wuhan, the capital of China's Hubei Province, is actually three cities rolled into one. Wuchang, Hankou and Hanyang, which are divided by the Yangtze and Hanjing Rivers, make up the "Wuhan Three Towns."

The city, with a history of 3,500 years, holds an important place in the country's military, economic and political development. It is also a major transportation hub in central China. The most famous attractions in Wuhan include Yellow Crane Tower, Guiyuan Temple, East Lake and the Provincial Museum.

Wuhan is known as one of the three furnaces of China due to its extreme summer heat; the winters can be cold and wet so you best visit the city during spring or autumn. Especially if you go between March and April, make sure to visit Wuhan University to enjoy the cherry blossoms on its campus. Taking a cruise on the Yangtze River is also a good option.

The following are the top 10 attractions in Wuhan, China.

Located in the center of Hankou District, Jianghan Street stretches from Yanjiang Avenue in the south to Jiefang Avenue in the north for a total of 1,600 meters. It is claimed to be the longest pedestrian street in all of China.

Boasting various kinds of architecture -- in Roman, Byzantine, European or classic styles -- the 100-year-old street is known as "Wuhan's architectural museum of the 20th century." Its night market, lined with booths selling local snacks, clothes and pets, is also extremely popular with locals and visitors.
