#1 of 12 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.

  • Famous, team activities, a good place for group outings. Changsha Subway Line Line 2, the Orange Chau Qinglian station came out. But perhaps because the volume of people is too large, for the sake of safety, the government limits the flow, the two exits of this station is a little special. No. 1th exit only, the exit number 2nd can not enter, the first time here to not familiar with the people, may be a little inconvenient. But the scenery here will definitely give you a pleasing feeling.
