Ningbo

Gongyuan Road Ningbo Zhejiang province China
Gongyuan Road, Ningbo. August 2017.

The ancient harbour city of Ningbo lies in Zhejiang Province, south of Shanghai on Hangzhou Bay. I came here in August 2017 with a friend for two days exploring on foot. Despite lacking any heavyweight attractions, I found Ningbo to be a pleasant city with pretty parks, an impressive main square and a foreign-friendly bar district that springs into life every evening. For more, take a look at my travel reports on:

Laowaitan

Tianfeng Pagoda

Tianyi Square

Zhongshan Square

and some choice spots from across the city.
