The city’s history can be traced back to 3,000 years ago, the tomb relics standing as witness to ancient human activity in the area. Along with these ancient tombs the experts also located silk products, paintings, potteries, bamboo slips for writing, weapons and herbs, which can all be visited at the Hunan Provincial Museum.

The people of Changsha boast of having the finest cuisine in China as they spend a lot of time preparing and eating various kinds of food.
