Orange Island Park, Changsha

3.9
#1 of 11 in Fun & Games in Hunan
Take a break at Orange Island Park, a long, narrow island in the river offering a number of cultural and natural attractions. Historically known for its orange trees, a statue of Mao Zedong's head dominates much of the island these days, though you'll find an area of cultivated land in the middle of the island where the fruit trees still grow. A number of viewing pavilions allow for the observation of the river as it runs by, while two beaches provide a good amount of space for relaxation and recreation, including swimming. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Changsha holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Orange Island Park and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

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.
