We got to Orange island via the Metro. Because the day was a nice one, we skipped the "tram" bus which you can access for 20¥ each way and decided to walk the whole way! It is a long walk, but definitely worth it! You get to see all of the beauty of the park, trek across little bridges over... More

You can take the metro here Juzizhou station. Buy a ticket on the sight-seeing cart 20yuan. They will run you around the island dropping you at the main sights if you don't feel like walking. If you are in Changsha city for a couple of days it's something easy to do.

When i first read about this attraction, i was not too keen but having visited, i would recommend you to join. Take photos of the sculptor of Mao in different angle, and you see the relax side and the worried look =) Find out yourself which side represents which.

Pretty large island and having the breeze off the water was great for keeping cool. A large park with a number of different attractions but most of them are for the young. Nice place for a family to visit. I didn't take the metro but walked across the bridge to get to the island which was a good walk in... More

Great place to enjoy the green space and river breeze. However, they have literally taken the orange out of orange island. The former village has been demolished to make way for Mao's head on a limestone platter, and there are hardly any orange trees left...

Great place to take a break from the hectic city. Quite a long walk from the metro station (Juzizhou) especially in hot weather. But you can jump on a shuttle bus back for around 20yuan to save your legs for the rest of the day. Whole island can be done in less than two hours. Mao head is great once... More

Orange island is huge! A great place to enjoy walking, open green space, and some cool looking Chinese buildings. There's also restaurants, souvenir stalls, and small local food stalls. There is a bus you can buy tickets for and ride and get on and off at stops which I recommend because it's so long. Renting bikes would be good too,... More

Orange Island Park is a must see tourist location if visiting Changsha. Besides seeing the beautiful plantings as you stroll or take a trolley bus on the island, you will also encounter two primary places to visit - the "Young Mao" sculpture and the Buddhist influenced temple. It's surely a memorable visit that will require at least 3 - 4... More

This is a huge island park in the middle of the Xiangjianr River. It has a small open train that goes all around the park and at the tip of the island you can find a huge Mao sculpture

It's a long walk down to the statue of Mao from the subway stop but it's a nice walk with interesting things to see. I would reccomend visiting!
