From my perspective, the local for me in this world in Hankou, which is in Wuhan city.
During the Second Opium War,the government was defeated by the western powers and signed the Treaties of Tianjin and the convention of Peking, which stipulated eleven cities or regions
-Open trading port
Because of this history, Hankou now is the main trading source of Wuhan and become a diversity city.

Wuhan consistently urged the government to expand the scope of religious freedom in accordance with the rights codified in the constitutions and internationally recognized norms.
