Places To Go:


Changsha, or “Star City”, is the capital of Hunan province, and a central city in the middle reaches of the Yangtze River. It represents an important city for industry and commerce in South Central China as well as China's base for grain production, energy materials and equipment manufacturing. This transportation hub also serves as the political, economic, cultural, educational and commercial center of Hunan Province.

As a famous ancient city from the Chu-Han period, mountainous Changsha has exhibited its dynamic modern pulse. With a splendid civilization stretching 3,000 years, Changsha was among the first batch of National Famous Historical and Cultural Cities approved by the State Council. It is home to many historical relics like Mawangdui, Four-goat Square Zun and bamboo slips from the Wu Kingdom during the Three Kingdoms period (AD 220–AD 280).
