In the evening, take a stroll at Changsha’s most famous commercial pedestrianised shopping street, Huang Xing Lu. is also one of the oldest commercial streets in the area, although you wouldn’t know it to look at, with its endless parades of brand-name shops, restaurant chains, KTV bars, and the usual commercial dross you can find anywhere in China. It’s popular amongst locals who like to chill and presumably watch the ‘outsiders’ coming here to splurge all their newly acquired wealth on meaningless tat. The street is approximately 830m long, and about 24m wide, which is good to know if you ever need to stage a 12-legged 830 metre sprint along the street: though you couldn’t even if you wanted to due to the hideously rendered bronze ‘cultural’ statues and plants that would block the way.
