The Orange Island
By CATHERINE | 4/8/2005 5:08:13 PM

The Orange Island should be the most famous attraction in Changsha because of chairman Mao's famous poet. In fact, it is really an excellent place for sightseeing. Sitting in the pavillion on the island, feeling the gentle breeze from the Xiangjiang River, looking into the distance of the Yuelu mountain, especially when all the maple leaves all redden in Autumn. That will be a lifelong memory for you if you have experienced it by yourself.

The No.1 Xiangjiang Bridge built across
the island. Transportation to the Orange Island is rather convenient.

Universities in Changsha
By CATHERINE | 3/31/2005 10:53:34 AM

In my opinion, there are three universities in Changsha that worth mentioning, namely Hunan University, Hunan Normal University and Central South University. They are all key universities of the whole country and among the 100 universities of the National Ministry of Education.

These three universities are all located along the Xiangjiang River, at the foot of Yuelu Mountain with picturesque scenery and dense academical atmosphere.

Climate of Changsha
By CATHERINE | 3/30/2005 9:48:52 AM

Through being a southern city in China, climate of Changsha is somewhat unbearable.

The weather in summer can be extremely hot with the highest temperature of 40 centigrade. There are three stoves in China (namely Wuhan, Chongqing and Nanjing),but Changsha has long been called the fourth one.

While winter there is just like a nightmare. Piercing wind, humid frozen temperature,the worst thing is that there are no heating system in Changsha.

Grand Sun City Hotel
By KIMPENG | 2/26/2005 1:49:54 AM

Excellent 5-Star Hotel with outstanding customer care. Many on staff speak English and are happy to share information about the local area. Hotel is located on busy Furong Rd., but is not centrally located in the downtown area. The western and Chinese restaurants are well managed and serve a wide variety of dishes. Many adoptive families stay at the Grand Sun City.
