#lightthecity It was very hot when we went （we had to buy a manually powered fan for 25 yuan） and there were tons of people visiting so you have to queue up to wait but the lines are fast. You can walk the island yourself or take a tram. It is a few kilometers to walk and we were lazy so we took the tram. The highlight of the place is a giant statue of Young Mao. There is also a museum right by but it was closed. There are plenty of parks and other smaller attractions as well. Wish we would have spent a little more time here as there is a beach at the other end of the island that we missed. You can easily spend the bulk of the day here seeing all the different attractions.
Orange Island is known as one of the largest inland continents in the world. It is about 6 kilometers long from north to south. It is strictly forbidden to enter motor vehicles and non-motor vehicles. If there is no physical strength and perseverance, it is difficult to complete the journey.
Some regrets are that because Orange Island is in the heart of the river, it is often flooded with water. There are not many ancient buildings that have survived to this day. Most of them are destroyed in the war and have long since disappeared. Among the long rivers of history, today's famous arches, such as the Arches, Jiangshen Temple, Zhuzhangdu and Wangjiang Pavilion, belong to antique buildings.
In addition, because Orange Island was once a foreign territory, it still has many European-style buildings such as Changsha Customs House, Meifu Yangxing Private Villa, Tang Shengzhi Residence, Clergy House, Red House Villa, etc. The wonder of the merger.
Orange is not only full of pride, but also the romance that can be seen everywhere. History and reality are seamlessly connected, forming a unique beauty.

After visiting Hunan University, I walked along the archway road to the Xiangjiang River. When I walked to the riverside, I could see a archway. At this time, I understood the meaning of the name of the archway road. I think this should be the location of the original Yuelu Academy archway ~
