Getting There

By Plane

Wuhan Tianhe International Airport (WUH) is the main gateway to Hubei. It's one of the fastest growing airports in the country and handles a growing number of international flights as well as domestic flights to nearly all major Chinese cities.

By Train

Hubei lies at an important central location with train connections in all directions. It's also the centre of a growing high-speed railway network with Wuhan and the central city. For example, the Hefei-Wuhan high-speed railway was opened in April 2009 there are high-speend trains to/from Hefei, Nanjing, and Shanghai (6 hours). Most of these express trains leave from the Hankou Railway Station. The new Wuhan Railway Station opened in December 2009 and China had its second high-speed train with scheduled runs from Guangzhou to Wuhan. It is considered one of the fastest trains in the world, with a topspeed of 394 km/h. The travel time between the two cities has been reduced from 10.5 hours to just 3 hours! Eventually, the rail service will extend north to Beijing.
