A good place to visit. When you enter the park its advice that you take the tiket for the vehicle as the end point is about 4 km and when at return you go to take the vehicle ride you get to note that the 20RMB ticket is for return.

This park is the top attraction in the city of Changsha, Hunan Province. Is a big island in the middle of Xiang River. It is a beautiful place to walk and there are lots of locals walking too. Westerners are themselves an attraction because not many tourists visit this part of China. Even in a cold day it is a... More

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.
