Ningbo is an important seaport in Southeastern China 220kms south of Shanghai. Ningbo is one of the oldest cities in China with a 7000 year old history but is also a modern city that is growing. And quickly! It's over 40% cheaper to live in than Shanghai, but more accessible with just as much opportunity.
Home to over 6 million people, Ningbo is a great example of a modern but culturally stimulating city with a diverse range of attractions to suit all tastes. Whilst there are plenty of more modern past-times such as shopping in malls, visiting the zoo or Oceanworld, going to the gym, art galleries, museums, playing a round of golf or frequenting the many local and Western bars, cafes, clubs and restaurants, there are also many more traditional and cultural attractions such as temples, architecture and the local seafood 'Yong Cuisine' to experience. For those liking Ningbo is located between the sea and mountain ranges and there is a beautiful landscape to explore from Songlan Mountain Beach to Wild Crane or Ningbo Five Dragon Pools, to the ancient town Qiantong, Ninghai, Zhe Dong Grand Canyon or the national forest parks. Ningbo has four distinct seasons with hot summers and cold winters. There are a number of international schools and businesses, so you will have a good existing expatriate community with which to link as soon as you arrive. See it for yourself:
