Hunan – Hubei, Day 6: Wuhan And Flying Home

This was the last day of my trip. I visited three sites of Wuhan called Yellow Crane Tower (which was made famous by poetry), Hubei Provincial Museum, and East Lake.

Two hours at Yellow Crane Tower seemed like a waste of time. I’d prefer more time at Wulingyuan or Fenghuang Old Town.

I liked the visit to the museum which made me understand more about the Chinese culture. Though I saw so many Chinese students around the beverage vending machines than in the showrooms.

After that, I had a chance to go around East Lake. Unlike Jingzhou, the minibus took all of us around the lake for 30 mins. As I thought out loud that the driver was handsome, my tour group kept joking about me and him. Though he was 9 years younger, he said I looked like 27 haha. We talked a bit. He asked if I was a Malaysian (?) And after a stop, when I switched to the seat next to him, he nicely started a small conversation with me. He asked which city I was from and if it was near the beach. Ashin said that 521 was better than 520. I couldn’t agree more.

After 3 flights with China Southern Airlines this time, I somehow felt that their service was worse than 10 years ago. We had to wait for a while on board and they didn’t give us any water to drink. I even had a meal before the plane departed 10 years ago.

After midnight, I’d be home safe and sound.
