I arrived in Wuhan at the end of August for the initial teacher introduction training before the term began, the climate was very warm. I realised that I was going to be there in the summer but I wasn’t expecting the heat to be as intense as it was, I was really glad that there was A/C at the school and at the apartment. Throughout the year the climate is a few degrees warmer than the UK but at the height of Summer, it can get really hot.
The first couple of weeks was a bit of a culture shock but it didn’t take long to get into a routine, the food is delicious one of my favourite things to eat is doupi (it’s like a Chinese burrito with sticky rice, egg, beef, mushrooms and beans wrapped in a pocket of soy skin) I can’t get enough of them. It’s very inexpensive to live here as the price of food and transport are very reasonable, the only this that can be expensive is some western products such as breakfast cereals.
The city is massive and there are loads to see and do, I would definitely recommend visiting the Yellow Crane Tower if you are in the area, it’s an amazing experience and you with have a great view of how beautiful Wuhan city is. The interior is also like something I have never seen before as it’s inscribed with poems by famous Chinese poets at the time.
