It's sanitised and very crowded at weekends but it's cool with lots of snack foods. If you squint your eyes it is like being in China a hundred years ago. It's near the train and bus stations so you can check it out as you...More

Great place to experience local food in all the food stalls and restaurants. Very safe and you will find something to your taste. If you are not adventurous, you can go to the Starbucks in the 2nd phase.

I suppose you get streets like this everywhere in China, but that doesn’t detract from the fact it’s just a tourist trap. Rebuilt in old design it’s just full of touristy restaurants selling overpriced and sub par local food and shops selling expensive tat. Clearly...More

The "old street" is not old, but is a re-creation of historical Ningbo. There are plenty of quaint little shops and very good cafes and restaurants to visit.

Amazing food choices, collectibles and fruit drinks. Crazy aromas and smells intertwined. A must have are the meat kebabs and prawn batter fried. Do not takeaway, have there and then!

This is a quaint and clean walking street with old Chinese-style architecture. Beautiful and romantic at night! Lots of delicious street food, high-end restaurants, and charming shops. Something for everyone!

One of the surprisingly clean old street located in China, not too many foreign tourists, with vast varieties of local special foods unique cafe and hotels. Worth for exploring and stay over night at the old street for foods and cafes hunting.

Nantang Old Street is a perfect example of ''fake old'' touristic areas China is familiar with. But, it is pleasant to hang out there during the evening. You can find local snacks as well as expensive restaurants. I recommend you to taste the famous stinky...More

You can get off at 鄞奉路尹江路口 (Yín fèng lù yǐn jiāng lùkǒu) if you're using bus no 161. As I know, you can't get there using subway. Good luck
