Very beautiful place. Lines are big, but worth it. The park is very big, with a great view of skyline of Changsha. Bamboo forest is divine and Mao Tse Tung Statue is incredible.

While the giant Mao is impressive, Orange Island is so much more. A beautiful place to wander, have tea or lunch and soak up the beauty of the area.

We went during national week so more people than humanly possible crammed themselves in to this park. However, it smelled amazing (purple blossoms were blooming), the orange trees were almost rip with oranges, and the park itself is well kept. Recommend for children

One of a kind - massive bust of Chairman Mao. Lots of reviews say the walk is long but really it's not that bad. And also there is a shuttle service the whole way up and down the island. Worth the visit

A very pleasant walk in the greenest park of the town. It’s a river island with many trees, flowers, benches and a huge statue of young Mao head. It’s a very relaxing place good for a run, gym or just a romantic walk or ride...More

We walked 2 hours in 99° heat to see the Chairman Mao statue. I thought I would pass out but when I finally got there it was so worth it. It is something you really should see in real life. My advice for those going...More
