Fabulous Holiday Close at Hand

Years of efforts have turned the city into a sizable “urban tourism circle” featuring urban sightseeing, leisure, entertainment, and shopping.  Citizens can enjoy a fabulous “golden tourism week” without leaving the city.

The National Day witnessed a myriad of cultural activities. Many cultural feasts were just close at hand. For instance, the “calligraphy and painting exhibition commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Revolution of 1911” displayed in the Tianyi Pavilion Library, a showcase of 100 pieces of works elaborately made by artists from the Municipal Committee of CPPCC Painting and Calligraphy Institute, “the treasure exhibition of Emperor Qianlong” in Ningbo Museum, the "natural stage" entertainment program held everyday in Zhongshan Square, including shows like ballet, acrobatics, opera and so on. Ningbo Cinema also put on a show of classic films commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Revolution of 1911.

Shopping on holiday, a way to enjoy holiday discounts and release the work stress at the same time, was a wise holiday choice. With more than 130 international fashion brands, The Shanjing Square, opened on September 23rd brought new experience for the citizens.

Food is an indispensable element for city travelers. The Golden Autumn Seafood Festival provided visitors with a gluttonous feast of seafood.  The delicious and fresh sea food in Baisha dock is the best treat for your taste buds.  Meanwhile, hotels organized their own food festivals with different characteristics, such as the Sichuan Cuisine Festival in Nanyuan Universe Deluxe Hotel, Thai Food Festival in Sheraton Hotel and Mexican Food Festival in New Century Grand Hotel. Citizens can enjoy food from both home and abroad.

Of course, citizens can also appreciate sea view and walk along the Bund Promenade. You might also want to order a cup of coffee along the Bar Street while enjoying the spectacular view.

Family can also get together at the Lake Park and Zhongshan Square to enjoy the laurel blossom. Bathed in the fragrance of sweet-scented osmanthus would be a fantastic experience.
