Took the chair lift up the mountain which was very scenic. The top of the mountain was under development but great coffee shop and the kids found a good fried chicken restaurant. Parts of the mountain were very run down, sign posting was confusing and maps didn't make much sense. It's obviously very popular and very glad that we went but be prepared to overlook the run down bits and enjoy the great bits.

This place is totally for domestic tourist to see the attraction from around the world.
It can be fun place to hang out with friends or take the family for a small picnic.
Not all the miniature makes sense coz they may look way different then what the real one looks like.

This is a multi-use, free public park with historical significance, walking paths, a man-made lake for boating and scenic beauty, some zoological exhibits and an amusement park with attractions. A wonderful place for families to go.
I supposed to visit Hunan Province Museum and it was still under construction. That day was drizzling. As an alternative, I changed my plan to visit this park and met a young lady from Nanning. We walked through the Qing Fen Bridge and Feng Yu Bridge.
This park has the two parts. One is Martyr's park and another is garden. Worth to visit if no where to go in Changsha.

It's a pretty pavilion but nothing fantastic and it's only a few stories tall. One of it's fames is that Chairman Mao used to go there with friends when he was a student.

I can't believe anyone wrote that this museum was only worth coming to for the mummy. Yes, the mummy is incredible, but there are 2000 year old millet cakes, 2000 year old everyday personal artifacts and clothing that belonged to this woman that are in almost perfect condition! It's almost like you get a real window into the past. This museum was also one of the nicest ones I saw in all of China, and one of the most sparsely attended, for reasons I cannot grasp. The people of Changsha were also the most friendly of all of the cities I visited, and the city itself was lovely and had many other worthwhile sights to see. While I was at the museum, there was also an exhibit of Chinese and Russian Communist propaganda posters, which was amazing.

I decided to visit the Tianxin Tower as it was within walking distance from Changsha’s shopping district. The tower is located on top of a hill. The entrance fee is 32 RMB. I found the walk to the tower to be more interesting than the tower itself. As, the local buildings surrounding the tower are currently being restored to reflect traditional Chinese architecture. Just outside the towers garden the walls display Chinese cultural landmarks. For example one of the first bicycle models sold in China with a number plate is cast into the wall. You are able to sit on the bike and take a photo.

The ferris wheel is located on the fifth floor. It was a little hard to locate with no street signage. You pay just before you get on. The ride lasts for approximately 20 minutes and will set you back 50 RMB per person. The glasses view from the cab isn’t exactly crystal clear, so forget the camera and just enjoy the view. The view itself it’s as spectacular as say the Canton or Pearl Tower. But for a fraction of the cost it’s a bargain. I recommend you go on a Saturday when the fireworks are on.

The building is beautiful.
We didn't go inside the residence but the area is alive with so many locals dancing, singing and playing cards. It is right on the river overlooking Orange Island.
The entrance fee was 11RMB.
Across the road is the old streets of Changsha where you will find more locals going about their daily lives.
