Hunan Food Travel

In this page I put some basic information about Hunan food travel: Hunan map, famous Hunan food and attractions. I will add some links which I think might be useful for visitors in the future. 

I was born and grown up in Hunan but both my parents were from Sichuan, which is why I have been writing about Hunan local food and authentic Sichuan recipes.
I used thought there was no need to write introduction of Hunan as people can find them from the internet. But then I think it would be nice if I can provide something interesting about Hunan for my visitors, hopefully they might find something useful as well.

This page will be regularly updated so if you want to get the latest update on Hunan food travel, you may subscribe the site RSS feed.

Hunan Map

Hunan province is located at the south of China. The name in Chinese is 湖南, means "south of lake" (the Lake Dongting). 

Here I created a Google map with some Hunan attractions marked, which are the places I would certainly recommend to my foreign friends, such as Zhangjiajie, Fenghuang (Fenghuang Ancient Town/Phoenix City), Lake Dongting, Yueyang Tower, Shaoshan (Former Residence of Chairman Mao, if you are into politicians) and Changsha, the capital cityof Hunan.

Note, the mark for the place is roughly right, may not exactly match the attraction's location. Such as I only add the mark on Zhangjiajie city, but not Zhagjiajie Forest Park. But you can zoom in the map to find out the attraction is not far away.
