Ningbo

Trip Planner Asia  /  China  /  Zhejiang  /  Ningbo
A bustling port city with a rich and complex history, Ningbo today offers plenty of varied sites to explore. One of the oldest cities in the country, Ningbo at first looks like a fairly plain industrial town. Dig a little deeper and you'll find the attractions of Ningbo, including historic (admittedly, several times rebuilt) pagodas and temples set in peaceful parks, along with local museums explaining the city's hidden heritage. Ancient, well-preserved villages in the surrounding countryside make good day trips from Ningbo. Plan your vacation with our China travel itinerary planner and discover the best things to do in Ningbo.

Where to stay in Ningbo

Ningbo has the choice and variety of accommodations you'd expect to find in a major, modern Chinese city, albeit it one not usually associated with international tourism. Close to the river sit the skyscraper chain hotels, offering commanding views of the downtown area and the river that snakes through it. Guesthouses and youth hostels lie along the side streets of the central area, as do some basic hotels designed more for business travel than longer tourist stays.
