What to do in Ningbo? If you ever visit Ningbo in China, chances are you are just there for a business trip or you were in Shanghai and wanted to visit the surrounding cities. But you might not know that Ningbo is a famous historical and cultural city in China and one of the three major economic centers of Zhejiang. Ningbo is also one of the top 10 port cities in the world.
So, after COVID-19 ends, let’s go and travel to Ningbo together!
Here are the main attractions of Ningbo：
The Tianyi Pavilion Museum is located on the west bank of Yuehu Lake in Ningbo City. It is the oldest private library in my country-Tianyi Pavilion. It is a library built by Fan Qin, an outgoing official in the Jiajing period of the Ming Dynasty (1561-1566). There are ancient books and book cases in the building, and the fragrance of books is permeated everywhere. Tianyi Pavilion is one of the oldest private library buildings in the world. It has a strong cultural atmosphere and a rich collection of books.
As the hometown of Chiang Kai-shek, Xikou has a sense of mystery surrounding itself. In addition, it is a popular tourist destination alongside the wide Yanxi River and the Xuedou Mountain, which is colorful with waterfalls and streams. Nowadays, Xikou Scenic Area contains two major scenic spots, Jiang’s former residence and Xuedou Mountain. It is worth spending 1-2 days to visit.
Tianyi Square is the largest and most prosperous business district in the center of Ningbo, where shopping malls, restaurants and snacks gather. There are especially many tourists who come to do shopping and enjoy the night view of the city at night. The huge musical fountain in the center of the square is also a highlight.
Dongqian Lake is currently the largest freshwater lake in Zhejiang Province. After the vicissitudes of life, it has accumulated a strong cultural heritage and left many cultural and historical relics with high historical and artistic value.
Dongqian Lake is located in the southeastern suburbs of Ningbo, with an area three or four times larger than Hangzhou West Lake. Many young people ride bicycles around the lake, enjoying the scenery and taking pictures.
The Grand Canyon of East Zhejiang is located at the northern foot of Huading Mountain in Tiantai. It is a canyon scenic spot developed after the completion of Baixi Reservoir. Since the development time is not too long, the scenery is relatively natural. There is plenty of water in the gorge, especially in summer, it is a good place for water and coolness.
The Old Bund is located at Sanjiangkou, the very center of Ningbo. It is the earliest Bund in China, 20 years earlier than Shanghai Bund. Nowdays, the Old Bund still preserves a large number of beautiful European-style old buildings. Most of them have been converted into petty-bourgeois bars and restaurants, forming an emotional leisure area, which is one of the landmarks of Ningbo.
Liangzhu Cultural Park is located in the western suburbs of Ningbo City, Zhejiang Province. Liang Zhu Cultural Park is a love theme park and the birthplace of Liang Zhu’s story. Liangzhu Cultural Park uses the love legend of Liangzhu as a beautiful background to show people a colorful page of “Oriental Romeo and Juliet”.
The ancient city of Shipu has a history of more than 600 years. It is surrounded by mountain at one end and sea at the other end. Besides, there is also a peculiar patchwork of mountain fishing port in this city. There are many quaint old houses in the city, small shops selling seafood on the roadside, and 14 exhibition halls to learn about local culture. Whether you love ancient cities, culture, or seafood, this is a good choice.
Xiangshan Film and Television City is a filming location for popular costume dramas such as “Langya Bang”, “The Legend of Condor Heroes”, and “Bi Xue Jian”. The scenic area is mainly divided into the Legend of the Condor Heroes and the Spring and Autumn Period and the Warring States Period. You can watch performances, interact with each other, take photos in the realistic costume scenes, recall the classic scenes in the costume dramas, and even meet stars if you are lucky.
Moon Lake is the city’s landscape where literati in the Song and Ming dynasties sat and talked about Taoism. Although it is not as famous as the West Lake in Hangzhou, it has the same status in Ningbo as the West Lake in Hangzhou. There are islands such as Fangcao Island, Liuting Island, Songdao Island, and Juhua Island in Yuehu Lake. The tortuous embankment by the lake, the old people playing chess with weeping willows, and the ancient buildings hidden by the woods are in sharp contrast with the surrounding streets.
Welcome to Ningbo, my friends from all over the world. Let’s go travel and explore together soon!!
