Changsha Attractions

In recent years, Changsha has become an important creative center for TV and entertainment arts, with its many TV stations producing some of the most popular programs in China, including Super Girl. These programs have also brought a new entertainment industry, including singing bars, dance clubs, theater shows, as well as related businesses like hair salons, fashion stores, and hot spicy snacks at night(esp. in the summer time). While Changsha has developed into an entertainment hub the city has also become increasingly westernized and attracted a growing number of foreigners.
Hunan Provincial Museum
Changsha is home to the Lei Feng Memorial and statue.
Helong Stadium
In May 2008, the BBC broadcast, as part of its Storyville documentary series, the four-part The Biggest Chinese Restaurant in the World, explores the inner workings of the 5000-seat capacity West Lake Restaurant (Xihu Lou Jiujia) located in Changsha.
Changsha has one of China's largest multi-purpose sports stadiums—Helong Stadium with 55,000 seats. The stadium was named after the Communist military leader He Long. Helong Stadium is the home ground of local football team Hunan Billows F.C. in China League One while the more modest 6,000 seat Hunan Provincial People's Stadium which is also located in Changsha was used for their smaller games.
