With 60 million inhabitants Hubei is a relatively densely populated province in southern China along the Jiangze (Chang Jiang) river. The eastern two thirds of the province are an area of low-lying plains drained by the Chang Jiang river, while the western part is mainly mountainous. The plains were settled by the Han Chinese around 1000 BC. The major cities of Hubei are Yichang in the west and its capital Wuhan in the east.
