Changsha Aims for Growth in Tourist Visits

Changsha, the capital of central China’s Hunan province, is planning to develop the city’s allures to become a major tourist destination within China by 2020. Like much of China, Changsha is a beautiful mix of old and new. Many ancient sites stand in Changsha, such as the Mawangdui Tombs of the Western Han Dynasty and the 3,000-year-old Yuelu Acadamy, but the city is also home to many modern elements as well as beautiful natural scenery.

Changsha offers national forest parks, such as Dawei Mountain, and more than 80 community parks and 7.5 million square feet of green space have been set aside and/or built in Changsha in the past few years. There is also a food belt along the Xianjiang River in Changsha, where tourists can savor local foods, from stewed soup to steamed delicacies as well as seafood and spicy foods, while enjoying the views. In addition to these established appeals, Changsha is also bolstering its cultural attractions, including music festivals and the First Natural Ecology Expo, in order to bring in more international visitors.
