  • A place where Western tourists are rare. Here, the effect of Mao for China is easily recognizable. On the one hand, where Mao lived in his youth (was until he was about 16 years old). Then also in the really well-made Museum, that shows his life's work. Then also the Mao statue Park. All of course with "Free of charge". Not far away the place where he lived in the age. I think who is in Changsha and a little with which to deal Chinese past, is right here.
