Being the birth place of the Mao, Shaoshan is a pilgrimage site. There are several sites here dedicated to The Chairman including his ancestral family home. A large statue of Mao is located in the centre of the town.
Busses and trains for Shaoshan leave from the Changsha bus and train stations.
Most of the sites in Shaoshan can be visited on foot though local taxis are available.
Mao's ancestral home, a Mao statue, a museum dedicated to The Chairman and "Dripping Water Cave" a location Mao visited for some political meetings in the 70's.
Ponder The Chairman.
Tacky communist stuff.
Mao Shi Huangshao Ro (毛氏红烧肉), Mao's Family Pork. A delicious spicy pork belly dish.
