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.
