Established in 1874 and expanded in the early 20th century, the Gude Temple may not be as old as some of Wuhan's other temples, but it's well worth a visit due to the highly unusual building design, which successfully blends the architectural styles of Europe, the Middle East and Asia. From the outside, it looks a bit like a Christian church, but this is actually a Buddhist temple. The design was partially inspired by the Ananda Temple in Bagan, but is quite different from that temple.

This is a large (a mile across) exhibition grounds on Wuhan's northwestern outskirts. Constructed from scratch on the site of a former landfill, it opened in the fall of 2015 for the 10th China (Wuhan) International Garden Expo (2015年第十届中国(武汉)国际园林博览会). There are two large exhibition buildings on site; at the time (Nov 2015) one has a garden expo running, the other has exhibits from the collections of various museums (jade carvings, coins, furniture, porcelain, etc.) The rest of the grounds are landscaped, divided into a hundred or so themed sections: a dozen or so dedicated to various foreign countries, the rest, to various cities of China. Overall, although the landscaping is nice, one can visit plenty of similarly nice landscaped sites for free (or for a nominal admission fee) elsewhere in Wuhan, in city parks or on university campuses. The most crowded place at the site seems to be the huge, but rather overpriced cafeteria (which is also divided into themed sections, dedicated to various regions' cuisine). Many visitors choose to bring their own snacks - there are plenty of benches around the site for picnicking! The expo formally ended in May 2016, but the garden remains open to visitors. ¥60 (standard adult ticket), ¥30 (children aged from 6 to 18 and adults aged between 60 and 65).

The performances can be enjoyed by proxy as performers work other tables or they can be purchased. One can expect to pay about ¥10 per song performed.

During the day it is an interesting look at rampant consumerism in China's rapidly-growing middle class. At night, starting at 19:00, it is the same but is expanded on each side a few blocks deep by a night market with literally thousands of little stalls hawking every variety of goods imaginable: makeup, souvenirs, clothing, housewares, food, music, movies, etc.
