Wuhan - 武汉
Capital of Hubei Province, Central China

Wuhan is the largest city in Central China. The metropolis has the total population of over 10 million.
The last photo shows Wuchang (East of the Yangtze River) part of the city, the rest of them are from the Hankou (West of the Yangtze River) part of the city.

Chongqing probably has a much more dramatic change than Wuhan.

I've always been a fanatic of NYC and Chicago but I must admit that Shanghai and Hong Kong are just amazing.

My opinion has always been that the best are in the west.

Those Tianjin's pictures above remind me of Chicago... China's answer for Chicago maybe?

China's answer to another bustling Chinese metropolis more likely...China has their own separate league!

Actually Westerners who have knowledge of China like to call Wuhan "the Chicago of China"

Tianjin as a major port city to Beijing is more like Yokohama to Tokyo.

I thought Chongqing, rather than Wuhan, acted as the hub of central (inland) China. Is it Wuhan instead?

Wuhan is central to the Chinese heartlands (aka China Proper), while Chongqing is the far west of Han China, and was long considered peripheral over the centuries, an area subsumed into the empire only a few centuries before and colonised by Han migrants, and verging too close for comfort to the cultural empire of Tibet (though it was briefly the wartime capital). Chongqing does happen to be more in the centre of the 'unified' country so nowadays it's considered 'central'.


Wuhan would be in the middle of the blue 'Crossroads', the cultural heart, Chongqing would be in the purple 'Refuge', where the Han Chinese settled on later, but now more the geographical heart:


Thanks to the new Yangtze Dam providing water freight access, both cities now act like the coastal metropoli, as (inland) ports attracting trade and investment far more than the coast. They are the new promised land.
