Beautiful park, and huge! If might take 2-3 hours to walk around the entire park. Young Mao looked like young Jim Morrison and very interesting. It's a park with fruit trees and green space, perfect for picnic or leisure stroll.

Great visit of several hours to take in the scenery and snap a few selfies in the process. Once you get tired of walking, you can take the regular island "trams". Nice views of the river too.

Went here with group tour. We were only allowed to take pictures with the big statue of Mao Zedong and then back to the mini train and return to bus. Actually many things can be explored from this island but we don't have enough time.

Nothing too special- there are nice views along the water, but Changsha isn't really a pretty city. Worth going for the big Mao head though- it is very big...
