Hong Xing Exhibition Centre
This large, modern building is a couple of bus stops before South Bus Station, on the very southern limits of the city and a few minutes walk from the enchanting Botanical Park. It is close to the junction of Xiangfu Middle Rd and Shaoshan South Avenue. Opposite the centre is a large warehouse 'area/neighbourhood' where goods can be bought in bulk and haggled for. Inside, on an upper floor, you will also find a laser tag arena. The exhibition centre never seems fully utilised and it's events are poorly promoted (compared to other city events). However, it does hold some interesting annual events, such as jobs fairs and education fairs for prospective local students. The area behind is a wealthy government-occupied residential area and, as such, some impressive nearby hotels have now sprung up.
Bus: 7, 140, 15, 102
Nearest subway: N/A
Directions: jump on any bus to South Bus Station ('Qhi Che Nan Zhan') and get off a few stops before. There's a large furniture store, Matallan, next to the centre. HongXing 'area' are the backstreets opposite the centre.
