Shaoshan Attractions

All three attractions in Shaoshan reflect Chairman Mao’s earlier life, as it is the birthplace of the Chairman, making the village well known. The houses in which chairman Mao once lived, and other buildings of the Mao family, are well preserved in their original style. Another attraction worth exploring is Dripping Water Cave, actually a villa setting among lush mountains.

Currently, China Highlights does not offer tours to Shaoshan, but we can help you design your own trip based on your special requirements.
