the river was a bit disappointing because the water looks like chocolate milk flowing. the bridge was nice, good piece of construction, traffic flowed steady across it, and the view was nice. it was only the dirty river that detracted from the experience, and other...More

Took a bus and got to the place with the help of Baidu maps (Google maps is blocked in China!!) just to find out that the bridge was closed for maintenance. There is no information about when the maintenance works will be over. Don't go...More

I have seen the Yangtze River Bridge at Wuhan and this is another Yangtze River Bridge. There appears to be a deep history behind its construction and is considered to be a patriotic achievement. It was started with the help of the Russians but the...More

Nice place. Shops. Little cruises by the river. For me the weather is no good but in summer I think is better for a trip

Bus 12 or 95 brings you here. Hard to get a taxi back. you can get a little river view and some impression of the engineering work without being allowed to go on the bridge

Very long bridge built over the Yangzi river. You can imagine to see kilometres after kilometres of the river extending into the East China Sea, such a grandiose view for everything. Climbing the bridge is not too hard, but if you're in for a challenge,...More

It is difficult to reach, there is nothing special to see and the atmosphere is of a generally run down place. I regret wasting the time to come here during our very short stay in the city. Unless you can't think of anything left to...More

Impressive old Bridge. Facilities are non existent and there is one elevator that brings you up to level 5. But what a view from the top. Worth a visit.

I don't think you can manage all of this. I would cut down to 1, 5 and maybe 4 on your list. If you still have time, you could head to the Wall and XuanWu Park, which also has the advantage of being open after 5 PM. You can also visit the Yangtze Bridge after hours. Do the things that close earlier in the day. Fuzhi Temple is kind of gaudy and crowded, but a fine place to visit late in the day if you still have energy and an interest in going there. I like the Sun Yatsen mausoleum. It...More
