    One immediately notices the architectual difference between the Ningbo Museum and most other museums in China. The regular style has been replaced by a sea-motif. This is very suitable given the crucial relationship & role water (both domestic - the Grand Canal and sea) has played in the history of the city and area. There are a few good books in English at the gift shop. I especially recommned the one chronicling the porcelian trade. There are also interesting rotating exhibits. It is a little unreported fact that the original Bund area was in Ningbo some two decades before the term was used in its economic and cultural rival Shanghai.

    It’s located pretty far away from the city. During winter vacations there are not a lot of tourists, so you can enjoy the scenery and atmosphere. There is the certain time when visitors can eat at the monk’s canteen: the breakfast from 6:30-7:30, the lunch time at 12 and the dinner from 16- 17.
    Monks are cool

    Took bus 938 from Ningbo railway station and got off at the final stop. According to the bus driver the last bus back to Ningbo leaves around 5pm. Entrance was 50RMB and an additional 60 RMB to walk on the glass bridge.

    The waterfalls and glass bridge are absolutely worth it, but be aware that there are many steps to climb.

    The University of Nottingham's campus in Ningbo is certainly worth a visit ... although I'm not sure how easily the general public can get in: You may need a staff member or student to "sign you in."

    Lots to see. Some very good choices for food too. If you can visit, I do recommend it!

    The Ashoka Temple is located on the outskirts of Ningbo. The most important thing about the Ashoka Temple is the collection of Buddha Suli, and I have the opportunity to see it. No tickets are required, there are gifts in the temple that can be used, and there is no need to buy incense outside.

    A nice place for families, accommodating over 200 species. I remembered there is a large VR museum telling the history of different animals. I went there in August, hot, but can met many families on the way, my friend went there recently and show me a photo of the flamingo. Unluckily I went there only to see the sleepy giant pandas. But the brown bear is very lively.

    A nice old tower, from long ago. Worth a visit, although on its own, it may not be worth going too much out of your way yo get to. There are lots of things to see nearby, though, so combine it with other sights.

    Baoguo Temple is not far from Ningbo, with the magnificent architecture it is a famous temple. There is a viewing platform on the left, you can see the nearby mountains and the view is excellent. Definitely worth a visit!!

    Just head there and get lost within its trails.
    Nice lake and shady areas, with good hiking trails (non tarmac ones)

    It's a tourist trap, albeit a fun walk. Lots of shops and local food. I don't expect you'll find any locals there.

    This is a lovely Catholic Church in the heart of Ningbo, just at the point where the three rivers converge. We found it a beautiful and peaceful spot at the end of the ‘party zone’ called the Ningbo new Bund. The church is now refurbished and looks lovely. The outside is architecturally interesting give this is a ‘cultural misfit’ in a China. It only takes 10 mins to walk there across Xinjiang Bridge and takes 30 mins to appreciate. Worth a quick visit.
