Wuhan has three main railway lines including the Jingguang railway (from Beijing to Guangzhou), the Handan Railway (Hankou to Danjiangkou and on to Chongqing and Chengdu) and Wujiu railway (from Wuchang to Jiujiang and further to Shanghai). The two major railway stations are in Wuchang and Hankou. If you are heading north (to Beijing) along the Jingguang railway, trains arrive and depart from the Hankou station; if you are going south (to Guangzhou) use the station in Wuchang. If you are heading for or coming from Chengdu, Chongqing or other western cities, you will probably arrive or depart from the Wuchang railway station. If you are coming from or heading to Jiangxi province and further on to Anhui, Zhejiang or Shanghai, Hankou station is where your train depart or arrive.

By Boat

Wuhan is situated along the edge of the Yangtze River, and there are now daily passenger ships to Shanghai and Chongqing.

By Taxi

The trip from Hankou to Wuchang will cost about 200-300 RMB due to the size of the city. To relieve the city of congestion, taxis with even numbered registration plates can only pick up passengers on even dates. Taxis with odd numbered plates can only work on odd numbered dates.
