Ningbo is the birthplace of the Hemudu culture, which dates back over seven thousand years. This makes the city one of the oldest in China. Known in Mandarin as “Serene Waves”, it is located at the shores of Hangzhou Bay as a long-established international port and trading post. But with the Hangzhou Bridge, the longest trans-oceanic link in the world, Ningbo is now directly connected to Shanghai and already a commercial power in its own, it looks set to give her northern neighbour a run for its money.
