Just 30min by high speed train from Changsha and abt. 20min by taxi and you reach the yue yang park with its famous tower, which is originally almost 1000years old. Entrance fee is 80rmb. The park is located next to the lake, being the largest Freshwater lake in China. Its worth to spend quite some time walking around enjoying and exploring this ancient park, which is nicely arranged.

Said to be China's second-largest Freshwater lake and a flood basin for the Yangtze River, taking in the waters from the Xiangjiang River, the Zishui River, the Yuanjiang River, and the Lishui River . Also known as the 'eight- hundred Li Dong Ting Lake' (one “Li” [Chinese length] equals 500m), it is a large, shallow body of water surrounded by mountain chains. We took in the sceneries, sight and sounds on a boat ride in the lake. The boat carries 18 persons and will operate only when full. The visit also included the Junshan Island (Love Island).

Also known as the "Love Island", it is the largest island in Dongting Lake. A national AAAA scenic area, its attractions include Liu Yi's Well, Tombs of the Two Empresses, Feilai Bell, etc. It also has many flora and fauna especially a variety of bamboos, rare trees of red and green leaves and many birds. Interesting to visit but be prepared to squeeze into the boat for a ride out to the island and do some walking around the attractions. However, there are mini trolley buses to ferry visitors from one attraction to the other on the island. Worthwhile visit as we were told it was for good health and happiness too!

The Yueyang First Underground shopping strip runs beneath Dong Miao Ling Road
It consists of two levels from the street below . But the lower level which was originally designed to host eatery and food stalls , was not successful and as a result , it is closed off to the public .
The upper level of the underground shopping strip comprises of mainly small shops selling clothes , shoes , toys etc .
The whole underground street is fully air conditioning but lack of circulation of fresh air from the outside , makes the place smell a bit stale and stuffy .
The underground shopping strip ends at the pedestrian mall where KFC is located .
Worth a visit ? Unless you have no other place else to go in Yueyang .
Yueyang is currently undergoing some serious construction work by demolishing old post war buildings and replacing them modern & magnificent high rise shopping centres and residential apartments .
