Orange Island, lying in the Xiangjiang River in Changsha City, Hunan Province, stretches for ten miles and is named for its rich oranges. Running Xiangjiang River from south to north, the river bed is wide, upstream and downstream oasis, only Orange Island with its huge land across the broad river, so it is also known as "land and water island". Spring, bright light, sand gulls dot; summer, eagle long sky, 100 sails race; autumn solstice, grapefruit yellow orange red, fragrant; deep winter, ice shearing, river wind and snow, known as "Jiangtian Dusk Snow" become one of the "Eight Landscapes of Xiaoxiang". Take the sightseeing bus to the last stop. The sightseeing bus has explanations all the way. It's really good to sit in the Thomas train and watch the scenery and listen to the explanations. Go straight to Mao Zedong's youth art sculpture, which stands at the head of Orange Island in Changsha. As the largest landscape project of Orange Island scenic spot in Changsha, Mao Zedong's youth art sculpture is based on the image of Mao Zedong in 1925. The statue has a total height of 32 meters, a length of 83 meters and a width of 41 meters. It highlights Mao Zedong's ambition and elegant image. It happens to be raining heavily. No matter from any angle, we can see that young Mao Zedong is resolute, steady, vicissitudes of life, and his heart is tied to the world. It is really shocking. The young Mao Zedong demonstrated that he was the one who changed the destiny of old China by pointing out the great mind and courage of Jiangshan. Looking at the orange grove beside the statue, there were plenty of fruits and grapefruit trees, and walking around the statue was not a worthwhile trip. We came to the Orange Island Scenic Spot in Changsha where we had to punch.
Come out of Taiping Street and walk for a few minutes to Xiangjiang West Metro Station. Take one stop and you'll get to Orange Island Head. Buy a ticket and get on the bus. The ticket indicates that you can only go up and down five times. Everyone has to pinch it up and down. Just get on at the place where everyone gets off, so if you go far, you have to look back. Unless you are energetic, don't think about walking to Grandpa Mao's head. It's far away! The scenic spots are all in the middle of the lawn. The river is suitable for walking. There are no scenic spots. The big scenic spots are all on the way, the return journey is normal. There is also a sea temple. At the end of the return journey, you can choose to look at it first or back. I have no energy to look at it after a tour, so I gave up.
Orange Island, one of the most important scenic spots in Changsha, is Damei Orange Island Head. When I arrived at Orange Island, I couldn't walk [pout], so I bought a sightseeing ticket and got on a small train to start. If the Big Orange Island is free! Free Admission! Free Admission! I really envy the citizens of Changsha. How comfortable and comfortable they can often come to this casual courtyard for a stroll! I'll walk all the way again when I have time. [bared teeth]
Orange Island is suitable for small couples or you like sports. We went out at 8 o'clock this morning. First, we went to Yuelu Mountain. At about 5 o'clock, we hit the ground and went to Orange Island two places close to each other. A few dollars later, we arrived. Very girlfriend walked around Orange Island to see the place where Mao Zedong once pointed out. It took us more than two hours to walk nearly 6 km. It was wonderful. I like the feeling of sweating when I travel. You don't need any tickets, just need your physical strength. There is free white water supply in the park. If you are tired, you can drink a bowl of mung bean paste or Changsha ice powder. For only five yuan, this life is perfect.
At 10 o'clock in the evening, those who ran to Orange Island from the tail of the state to the head of the state took about 40 minutes to walk and run. In order to catch a glimpse of the beloved Chairman Mao, they also worked hard. Fortunately, when they came back, they caught up with a small train. They began to think that there was no train at this time. In fact, they could reach more than 10 o'clock during the eleventh hour and catch the latest train at eleven o'clock. It was really nice. Although it was very late, it ended Fortunately, I am so happy to catch up with you. The night scenery is also good. The garden is full of Osmanthus fragrance.
After all, it's a famous scenic spot in Changsha. It's a pity that I don't come to Changsha. I live with my little buddies for seven days and then go out to Furong Square, the subway station. We do line 2 to Orange Island Head, three stops apart. We walk to Chairman Mao's avatar with our buddies, and go back to make a tourist bus with 20 people. Overall, the scenery is good, and they are all good.
Orange Island is a narrow alluvial sandbar in the center of the Xiangjiang River. The middle part of the bridge runs east-west and connects the two sides of the Xiangjiang River. The subway entrance of Line 2 is situated beside the bridge. The tour order is around the southern sandbar, about 6 kilometers. The important scenic spots stop. In November, Changsha was rainy and rainy. There were no trees, flowers or maple leaves. The scenery of the Xiangjiang River on both sides was hidden in a mist. Only oranges and grapefruit were dotted with trees to make the sand banks full of vitality. The most worth seeing is Orange Island Head. Chairman Mao's youthful demeanor was solidified into a huge statue standing at the head of the island, looking north of the Xiangjiang River not far away. The platform of Zhoutou View is very spectacular, like standing at the bow of a huge ship, you can experience the artistic conception of Qinyuan Spring Changsha. There is a river temple on the north side of the subway entrance, which seems to have been commercialized, but it is closed on Monday, coupled with rain, it is a quiet and leisure place.
Changsha Metro has Juzizhou Station, which is very convenient. The scenic spot environmental protection station is next to the subway station. You can get off or get on at any scenic spot station by transferring directly to the scenic spot. All scenic spots are open, no tickets, battery car 20 yuan can be up and down five times. The Park was very green. I had to go at night because the plane was late. Battery cars stop selling tickets at 21 o'clock. There are many citizens running and walking in it, which is a good leisure park. The most important thing is that there is an endless stream of people coming to see Grandpa Mao. So late, I also saw two young mothers, with toddling babies, small children "Grandpa Mao, Grandpa Mao" incessantly, tender voice, particularly moving.
I live at the Spring Hotel on the side of the Xiangjiang River and take a taxi to the head of Orange Island for 12 yuan. After getting off, I walk south to the head of Chairman Mao's youth sculpture for 2.7 kilometers. The distance is a little long. If I don't often walk, I don't feel tired of taking a sightseeing bus (I walk 5.4 kilometers all the way). The scenic area is free, with the old site of Mobil International Travel, Tang Shengzhi Mansion. At the old site, you can go to the southernmost end of Orange Island to look at Mao Zedong's youth art statue, the largest granite statue of Mao Zedong in China. It is 32 meters high and needs to be looked up. Mao Zedong's "Qinyuanchun-Changsha" carved in yellow paraffin can be appreciated in the park. Orange Island is in the middle of the Xiangjiang River, and the water of the Xiangjiang River runs downstream from both sides. Looking north is Yuelu College in Hunan Province. The scenery is beautiful. Today it happens to be a cloudy day, some water mist, light cloud around the mountains, adding a charming and quiet to the Xiangjiang River.
Passing Changsha and changing trains, because only half a day, and can not go to too many scenic spots, we chose Orange Island. From Changsha Railway Station, you can take Metro Line 2 to get there directly. The weather was very good on that day. The sky in Orange Island was very blue and clean. It's not very convenient to drag the suitcase. The tourist center can deposit it free until seven o'clock. And the visitor center also has water dispensers and rest seats. It's very good to see the scenic spots and introduce them. You can buy 20 yuan ticket at the door, so you don't have to walk too much. I saw a large stone sculpture of Mao Zedong and his poems, which is a scenic spot worth visiting.
