There are many shopping options and a big Tesco supermarket for those who are looking for local snacks. Worth spending more time if you like shopping as this items are cheaper as compared to bigger cities. MUST GO: popular restaurant 'Gang Ya Gou 缸鸭狗' for local delicacies such as ningbo dumpling, etc. Really nice and decent priced but expect some... More

Tianyi Square is a place in Ningbo you can find KFC, Starbucks and other familiar symbols of the Westernized consumer lifestyle. When in downtown Ningbo, I have been known to stop by Sushi Express and ride the sushi train. If you are in town you could conceivably come here for a bite to eat, but this is absolutely not an...

I come from Cape Town and thought i was used to shopping areas...well I was somewhat surprised at Tianyi Square and surrounds! It is a great place to explore all the International "brands" and see the local fare next to it in different locations. Grandma's is one of the best restaurants I visited!

Tianyi Square is a big and crowded place for shopping and food. The first years I lived in Ningbo, I have visit Tianyi quite often, but after sometimes, its losing its attraction. If you like shopping and you do not mind overcrowded places, you will love it.

Tiyanyi Square is also known as "downtown" by most foreigners living in Ningbo. This was the first place I was shown my people who were already living in Ningbo. It's a brilliant panorama of shopping, food and people. There is no place like the city centre to make you fall in love or hate a new city. Nearby you'll find... More

Tianyi square is something of a meeting point for the Ningbonese. And there are many places to do so, from the numerous coffee shops and restaurants to the various outdoor seating areas. There is also a water display in the central area of the square but it tends to look a bit grimy. Tianyi square sums up modern China quite... More

Tesco, and some electronics stores, and some upscale shopping, Starbucks is large, and good comfortable seating. Sometimes they have events, with some stadium style seating by the main fountain pond, or in the main plaza.

Just fun to walk around esp. In the springtime when Chinese girls make fashion statements while shopping around. Colours are lovely in the summer too, with gorgeous umbrellas they carry. Try Mango Thai nearby for great food.
