Changsha

3.9

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. Put Changsha at the heart of your travel plans by using our China road trip site.

Where to stay in Changsha

The modern city of Changsha, the provincial capital, has plenty of accommodations to choose from. 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. North and south of this arterial road, towering luxury hotels sit in clusters of new developments, with malls, restaurants, and offices nearby, while more budget-friendly options sit on residential side streets.
