While the giant Mao is impressive, Orange Island is so much more. A beautiful place to wander, have tea or lunch and soak up the beauty of the area.

We went during national week so more people than humanly possible crammed themselves in to this park. However, it smelled amazing (purple blossoms were blooming), the orange trees were almost rip with oranges, and the park itself is well kept. Recommend for children

One of a kind - massive bust of Chairman Mao. Lots of reviews say the walk is long but really it's not that bad. And also there is a shuttle service the whole way up and down the island. Worth the visit

Nice and extremely well maintained park good for a half day stroll. Best to take the sightseeing train for just 20 yuan as distances are great, especially on a hot day.
