The city of Ningbo has one of the world’s busiest ports and is one of Eastern China’s most popular tourist destinations. About 7,000 years ago, it was the birthplace of the Hemudu Culture, and sites commemorating the history and culture are all around. That cultural foundation has been supported by economic development that has made the city a modern destination set amongst fine scenery. Lishe Airport
services the city with both domestic and international flights.
There is lots to see and do in Ningbo. The city provides modern living with shopping malls and fine restaurants, and the countryside is where one goes for nature and relaxation. The countryside also offers the wonders of ancient villages such as Qiantong. Cultural insight can be studied in museums such as Ningbo Historic Museum and Hemudu, and strong Buddhist connections have left centuries-old temples such as the Asoka Temple and Bauguo Temple. For the shopper, there are a number of traditional handicrafts sold in markets and pedestrian streets. Popular areas to pick up some souvenirs are Tianyi Square
and Chenghuang Temple Pedestrian Street. Natural scenery can be enjoyed as well, especially to the north where West Lake and Tai Lake are found. Tianyi Pavilion and Yandang Mountain are also well worth the visit.
