Located in the heart of the Xiangjiang River across the urban area of ​​Changsha City in Hunan Province, the Orange Island Scenic Area is the largest famous island in the Xiangjiang River. From south to north, it runs across the river center and faces Yuelu Mountain in the west. It is adjacent to Changsha City in the east, surrounded by water and stretches tens of miles. Its narrow part is about 40 meters wide and its wide part is about 140 meters wide. Its shape is a long island, being a national key scenic spot.

In 1925 (14th year of the Republic of China), Comrade Mao Zedong returned to Hunan from Guangdong Province to lead the peasant movement. During the cold autumn season, he re-visited Orange Island and wrote the famous poem "Qinyuanchun • Changsha".
