The early spring is a time to enjoy the cool, refreshing air and enjoy the local parks when the flowers bloom.
Orange Island (橘子洲, Juzi Island) is a famous narrow island in Changsha's Xiangjiang River. It is probably Changsha's most popular tourist attraction. It is a park highlighted with plum trees that start to bloom in February. The pink and white plum blossoms' delicate beauty are a memorable sight.
If you love blooming cherry blossoms, this park has cherry trees spread over 6 hectares (16 acres). It is said that this park has the greatest diversity of kinds of cherry trees of any garden in China. These trees bloom in March and April and present various shades of colors in different weeks.
The atmosphere is lively at the region's favorite shopping and dining pedestrian street. Young local people and Chinese tourists frequent the area, and the people on the street are unusually friendly for China. The street's highlights are the little Chinese shops that give economical prices and the local food.
March falls during a relatively low travel season after the heavy Chinese Spring Festival travel season. If you go in March, you get lower prices for Changsha flights, hotel rooms, and train tickets. We could arrange these for you.
