Dear MEL Topic Readers,

The place Chinese travelers want to visit in 2020 is… Wuhan

Wuhan is the capital of Hubei province. With over 11 million residents, it is not only the most populous city but also a major transportation hub and considered the economic, financial, commercial, and cultural center of Central China. But the city is now more known as the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak in the world. The city was locked down by the central government from January 23 until April 8 this year to prevent the virus from spreading to other parts of the country, and the world. There were over 50,000 confirmed coronavirus cases and nearly 4,000 deaths were attributed to the outbreak officially in Wuhan. Since the city officials, medical staff, and residents had to endure a long, difficult time, people across the country praised and supported their efforts. Now, when Chinese netizens are asked where to travel after the outbreak, many of them picked Wuhan more than any other city. It seems that the perseverance and courage that people in Wuhan demonstrated impressed others in China.

However, it is still too early to book tickets and a hotel room as no one knows if Wuhan, or any other city, is or will be free from COVID-19 yet.

Read the article and think about which Chinese city you may want to visit after the outbreak.
