Star City

A good starting point for explorations of the province, Changsha stands as a modern city with 3,000 years of history behind it. Unfortunately, many of the buildings, relics, and antiquities that told this history in detail were destroyed during a great fire in 1938 and battles during World War II. Museums serve as some of the main attractions of Changsha these days, telling the history of different aspects of the city in many different ways. The starting place of Mao's political career, you'll find plenty of sites, memorials, and museums relating to the former leader throughout town.

Primarily located to the east of the river, the places to stay here include high-rise luxury hotels, simple guesthouses, hostels, and rental apartments. Wuyi Avenue, along which the metro runs, represents a good place to look for accommodations, with this arterial road leading east from the downtown area to a major train station.
