I have seen nearly every attraction in EnShi and LOVE it! The city is not overcrowded with foreigners and the locals are very kind and helpful. A new train leading into the city makes travel much easier but you will still need to plan to do a little traveling to the countryside because most sites are nature related and thus require a trip. (It is well worth the time) The Tujia Castle and EnShi Grand Canyon are two of my favorite places but there are also several smaller local sites to see. Ask about taking a trip to the Tower, Wind and Rain Bridge, or Second Street if you are in town. The local tourist agencies can provide translators or you can hire a student from the Hubei University for Nationalities. (most translators in from the agency will be from this school but will have a tour guide license and will be able to go with you to all sites with free admission) Try the local food!!! It is so much cheaper that in the larger cities and the taste is above and beyond.
