From perennial tourist favourites to hidden gems slightly off the beaten path, the area around Jingzhou is brimming with fabulous things to see and do.
Hubei offers travelers some important temples and other sites of spiritual importance, perfect places to catch a glimpse of the region's spiritual heart.
Take a big breath and feel your worries drift away as you try out the area's relaxing pursuits such as wildlife watching and cycling.
Before you disappear on your adventure in Hubei, do as smart travelers do and learn a few important lines in Mandarin. One example of a handy Mandarin phrase is "Nǐ yào bú yào gēn wǒ tiàowǔ" (Would you like todance with me?). And also "Zhèiwèi xiānsheng huì qīngdān", which translates as "This gentleman/lady will pay for everything"
When it is time to depart from Jingzhou, use the last of your renminbi on last-minute souvenirs and bid a fond Zàijiàn (farewell).
