As the capital of Hubei province, Wuhan is the biggest city in central China. It is not only historically significant, but also a major player in China's rapidly developing future. Thanks to its location, it is also one of the country's biggest transportation hubs. 

As a "new first-tier" city, it is attracting migrants with its solid economy, favorable business environment and vast talent pool. Wuhan is home to 84 universities and colleges, producing such graduates as Lei Jun, the founder of electronics company Xiaomi. It is second only to Beijing for universities, but boasts the highest number of university students (1.3 million).
