Wuhan, capital of Hubei Province, is located at the confluence of the Yangtze and Hanshui rivers in central China. The Yangtze River and the Han River join here, dividing the city into three towns: Hankou, Hanyang and Wuchang. Due to its advantageous geographical location, Wuhan has become a commercial center. Built 3,500 years ago, the city has rich natural and cultural resources. It provides easy access to many scenic spots, such as the Three Gorges and Shennongjia.
Yellow Crane Tower lies at the foot of Sheshan on the southern banks of the Yangtze River. It is one of the three famous towers on the lower reaches of the Yangtze River, the other two being Yueyang Tower in Hunan, and Tengwang Tower in Jiangxi. It has five stories and is 168 feet high. It was initially constructed in the 2nd Year of the Huang Wu State over a period of more than 1700 years.
