Orange Island is located in the middle of Xiangjiang River. Is a commemorative park to the memory of Mao Zedong (former president of China), who born in a town near to Changsha and he liked to spend time in this island to write poems and thinking. Inside the Park there a mini-train service (paid) to avoid long walks. Is possible... More

It actually very large so take advantage of the people movers. Go and never Mao in all his glory. Walk around the orange groves and eat an ice cream and look at the boats up and down the river.

Chairman Mao's daunting statue dominates this experience. Local restaurants and good walk make Orange island worth a visit.

Huge park, fully of families on the sunny day that I was there. Spectacular, huge statue of Mao. Not many western tourists in Changsha :-) Excellent food & I met lovely friendly people there. If you are brave & don't mind trying different foods I'd recommend the "stinky tofu". It is available in other cities but Changsha does the best!

The Tangerine Island - a large central park like public space in the middle of the river - was really beautiful. The Chairman Mao scupluture is very impressive. Highly recommend a visit.

We went here for a walk next to the river. The island is peaceful with a nice view on the skyline alongside the river, On the island they have foostalls, a temple, gardens, little souvenirs stallls, and a statue of Mao,... So plenty things to do for everyone. It might get crowded on the weekends. The easiest way to get... More

The pool is awesome here. It's pretty clean, and usually not crowded during the week. The only downfall is that it's 100 kuai (70 kuai with the WNIC discount card) but you can stay pretty much all day... The island has basketball courts and an artificial beach where we play football and whiffle ball on... There's a nice beer shop... More

Firstly walking through the grounds is free. Ponds, grapefruits, oranges were for all to see. Lots of small outlets water cost 5RMB per bottle. At the end of... More
