City Guide - Ningbo

Ningbo is one of China's oldest cities, with a history dating to the Hemudu culture in 4800 BC. Ningbo was known as a trade city on the silk road at least two thousand years ago, and then as a major port, along with Yangzhou and Guangzhou in the Tang Dynasty; thereafter, the major ports for foreign trade in the Song Dynasty.

Ningbo's is a dialect of Wu Chinese, and has preserved many aspects of ancient Chinese phonology. Its original wording mode can be found in classical reference books. Ningbo also has a famous area for nightlife known as Laowaitan which is very popular with foreigners and contains more than thirty clubs and bars. Shanghai is also only two hours away by fast train making it very easy to visit Chinas most famous city.

There are also plenty of opportunities to get involved in outdoor activities such as hiking, bike rides and various sports as well as the facilities you would expect from a good sized city including shops, restaurants, parks and nightclubs.
