Location. Xiaogan is located in north-central Hubei Province, on the south bank of the Hanjiang River and neighboring Henan Province in the north.

History. In extremely long ago, cities and counties of present Xiaogan belonged to ancient Jingzhou. During the Zhou Dynasty (11th century BC-221BC), this region was the capital of several city states. Danyang is the old name of this region. It was changed to a regional level district under Hubei province in 1961.

Physical Features. According to the landform, the city can be divided into three major parts. The northwest of the city is mountainous area. The northeastern area is occupied by low mountains and hills. Plains are mainly distributed in the south of Xiaogan. There are four rivers in the city with several lakes scattered.

Climatic Features. Bearing a subtropical monsoon climate, the city has clear four seasons, but chilly and torrid periods are short. Weather in spring, autumn and early summer is moderate. Mid-June to mid-July is the plum rain season, and rainstorms usually occur during this period. Winter here is cold and seldom rainy or snowy.

When to Go. Xiaogan has an annual average temperature of 16C (61F). It will be comfortable to visit the city in spring, autumn and early summer.

Shuangfeng Mountain: Lying on the southern slope of Dabie Mountain and to the northeast of Xiaogan City, the Shuangfeng Mountain tourist resort is the largest national park with most scenic sights in northeastern Hubei Province. The main peaks of Shuangfeng Mountain are two close mountains standing opposite each other. Twenty-one 1,640 feet high peaks surround them, hence the name: Shuangfeng Mountain.

Within the scenic area, the weather is very pleasant all year and the mountains are thickly covered with plants. In the vast sea of clouds, only the mountain peaks can be seen, like the divine islets of legend. No wonder it was called Xian Yuan (the source of fairyland) in ancient times. There are 54 tourist resorts among which the Baiyun Ancient Village and Qinglong Cave are the most famous.

The relic of Baiyun Ancient Village was built during the Northern and Southern Dynasties (386-589). Covering three hills, it is regarded as the largest ancient village in Hubei. Visiting the village will make you mediate on the passing of time. Qinglong Cave is a natural karst cave close to Wuhan City. Until modern times, nobody knew where this winding and deep cave ended. There are three big cave chambers and four smaller ones. The attractive tourist sights include "Dinghai Shenzhen" (Magic Needle to Calm the Sea), "Shuilian Longchuang" (Water Curtain and Dragon Bed) and "Qunlong Chaobai" (The Worship of Rows of Dragons).

Far away from the busy city life, Shuangfeng Mountain is a fine choice for some good rest and recreation.

Tangchi Hot Spring is a large multi-functional hot spring scenic area aiming to improve people's health by spreading the hot spring culture. It is located in Tangchi Town about 14 miles to Yingcheng City in Hubei Province. Embraced by beautiful surroundings dotted by countless luxuriantly green trees, it creates a pleasant atmosphere to help visitors fully enjoy every second they spend in the hot springs.

There are six zones of springs: Japanese-style hot springs, dynamical hot springs, celebrities hot springs, cultural hot springs, lovers' hot springs and Japanese-style wooden houses. Each zone has a variety of spring pools that differ in their functions and effects. For example, the main springs in the cultural zone are: Peach Blossom Pool, Rosewood Pool, White Pine Spring, Skin Improving Spring, Blood-nourishing Spring, Heat-clearing Spring and Cold-eliminating Spring. The dynamical hot springs include two water parks, a drifting river, a sightseeing pool, and a children's park.

Moreover, inside the scenic area, there are over 500 guest rooms which can lodge over 1,000 people, including 26 European villas. The warm service and complete equipment guarantee that you will enjoy your visit to the springs.

Around every 20 minute, you should take a short break from the hot springs. There are water fountains for your use at the bank of the pools. You may use the clean bath towels in the wooden shelves. The waiters at the pools' bank will assist you with any need or problem. More Tips on Hot Spring for your reference
