"Wuhan and Nanjing University are very famous, but in my opinion, Nanjing University may be even more famous. There are a variety of bars in the cities of Wuhan and Nanjing, where you can find people from different countries to go out and play. Both Nanjing and Wuhan have takeaways for delivery. You can get the food ordering app on your phone and choose the type of food you like. Thirty minutes,
your food is at your doorstep. You can always go to Walmart, Carrefour to buy whatever you need and cook for yourself. Housing is not a problem. You can choose to host a home or share an apartment with a friend. A short semester, make sure you will mingle with the locals and enjoy your time. However, the pollution levels of the two cities are roughly the same and are moderate. It is not as cold as Beijing. As for entertainment choices, Nanjing is better than Wuhan. At first, it was more developed than Wuhan. Nanjing is close to Shanghai, one of the largest cities in the world. It is also worth noting that food in Wuhan is more spicy, while Nanjing is sweeter.”
