Wuxuan Introduction

Wuxue is a port city o­n the north shore of the Yangtze River in eastern Hubei province, China. Wuxue falls under the administration of Huanggang Municipality. Total county-wide population is about 580,000 and the county extends over 1,200 square kilometers, almost all of which is cultivated.
The county has Lushan Mountain to the east, is close to the Qizhou hometown of famed ancient pharmacist Li Shizhen in neighboring Qichun County in the west, borders the Yangtze River in the south, and leans against the Dabie Shan mountain range in the north.
Wuxue is 220 kilometers downriver from the provincial capital of Wuhan and about 50 kilometers upriver from the port of Jiujiang city, o­n the south side of the Yangtze in Jiangxi province.

Wuxuan Traffic

Wuxue opened as a port towards the end of the 16th century. Upon China signing the 1876 Yantai treaty with Britain, foreign merchants established an upgraded wharf. The port's strategic advantage lies in its proximity to the juncture of three provinces — Hubei, Anhui, and Jiangxi — and serves as a central hub for commodity trade. The port was modernized in 1953, with further-enhanced navigational improvements in 1975 and 1980. The total length of the port waterfront is now 14 kilometers, with 23 quay berths and many large warehouses, hoists, and cranes. The port handles both commodity and passenger traffic. In addition to the port, Wuxue is known as the "Gateway to Three Provinces" (Hubei, Anhui, and Jiangxi). As well, it is served by the east-west inter-provincial Shanghai-Hibiscus Expressway, and is a major station o­n the Beijing-Guangzhou railway. A passenger ferry runs across the river and downstream to Jiujiang, and Wuxue is about o­ne hour by car from Jiujiang airport.
Taxi: The basic charge is 5RMB, and 1.4 RMB/Km over 3 Kms.

Wuxuan Festivals

Dragons are of course legendary animals, but they are important to Chinese people who think of dragons as helpful, friendly creatures. They are linked to good luck, long life and wisdom. They are nothing like the fierce, fire-breathing Western dragons that carry off princesses and eat people. Chinese Dragons are associated with storm clouds and life-giving rain. They have special powers so they can fly in the air, swim in the sea and walk o­n land. The Dragon has features of other animals such as the horns of a stag, the scales of a fish and the footpads of a tiger.
Dragon dances are performed at New Year to scare away evil spirits. During the dance the performers hold poles and raise and lower the Dragon. Sometimes o­ne man has a 'Pearl of Wisdom' o­n a pole and he entices the Dragon to follow him to the beat of a drum, as if searching for wisdom and knowledge.
Dragons used in Dragon dances vary in length from a few metres to up to 100m long. Longer Dragons are thought to be more lucky than shorter o­nes. The dances can be performed either during the day or night, but at night a blazing torch will be carried to light the way
