About Hunan & Changsha

Hunan Province lies in south-central China. Hunan is named after its location at the south of Dongting Lake (Hu means lake and Nan means south literally). It covers an area of 211,800 square kilometers, 2.2% of the total of the whole country. As the Xiang River runs through the province from south to north, Hunan is called "Xiang" for short and boasts its "Xiang Cuisine", "Xiang Embroidery", "Xiang Opera", and "Xiang Army".

Originated from the Chu culture of the pre-Qin period, and enriched with the Yellow River plain culture in the Song and Ming Dynasty, Huxiang culture became splendid with the reputable attribution of "half of Chinese modern history was participated in by Hunanese", and "an army cannot be formed without Hunanese". The celebrities include Qu yuan, Cai Lun, Mao Zedong, Liu Sahoqi, Peng Dehuai and so on.

Hunan cuisine is hot because the air is very humid which makes it difficult for the human body to eliminate moisture. The local people eat hot peppers to help remove dampness and coldness.

Changsha, the capital of Hunan province, is a famous ancient city with a history of 3,500 years. It used to be a place of strategic importance in the Kingdom of Chu, and a famous prefecture of the Qin Dynasty (221BC-207BC). Now Changsha is an important city with historical and cultural relics, and an ideal destination of tourists in Hunan province.

Though 3,500 years have elapsed after the founding of Changsha city, people can still feel the past prosperity of the ancient city from a great number of historical remains in the city. A woman corpse that has been well preserved for more than 2,000 years astonished the world along with the discovery of over 3,000 precious cultural relics which were excavated from the Han tombs in Mangwangdui, making people in the world gasp in admiration at the ancient civilization created by the ancient Chinese people. Yuelu Academy, one of the four most famous academies in China, is widely accepted to be among the oldest academies in the world.
