About Changsha: The innovative Xiaoxiang culture, fiery Hunan cuisine and established entertainment industry have given Changsha a free and active atmosphere formed on a thick historical base. You can go to the Hunan Museum, Tianxian Pavilion, or Taiping Street to get a feel of Changsha's historical heritage. You can also go in search of traces of Mao Zedong at places like Orange Island and the Hunan First Normal University. Don't forget to take the opportunity to climb up Mt. Yuelu for a look at the natural scenery and the Yuelu Academy. On public holidays, countless fireworks are set off on Orange Island, leaving it shrouded in smoke. This gives Changsha a lot of color.
