    There are tourist buses to climb the mountain, but we recommend the lift. I think you can see view while climbing the longer than expected. There, lift one way and round trip ticket was purchase a one way most people. And the Shonan River from the top you can see beyond that town. Under the mountain lifts and on the other side by bus, toured the yuelu.

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.
