Visit Hunan

The Hunan province of China is a land of natural beauty and rich historical heritage. Located in central China, the terrain is made up of mountains and rivers making it an ideal spot for outdoor activities like hiking and rafting. Tourists can also explore the many temples, pagodas and cultural sites throughout the province.

One popular destination in Hunan is at Yueyang Tower overlooking Dongting Lake. This grand three-story tower has been standing since the 8th century and offers stunning views of surrounding nature. The historic city of Changsha is also worth exploring as it was once home to Mao Zedong during his early revolutionary years.

An interesting fact about Hunan's history is that it was where the Taiping Rebellion took place - a massive civil war between 1850 - 1864 which caused more than 20 million casualties!
