“An interesting ancient town close to Ningbo”

Ningbo Cicheng Ancient Town Site
Reviewed 14 March 2013

This is a very nice place to walk around, away from the hustle and bustle of big cities in the area. The Confucius Temple, old Chinese mansions, the Taoist monastery and the scenic lake at the northern end of town are all nice additives to strolling around the ancient streets and alleys. It's a shame though the entrance ticket only include some of the attractions.
Apparently one of Ningbo's most famed restaurants is located here also.
All in all well worth a visit.

Statues at Cicheng ancient town are as real as are at Madame Tussaud's museum of Shanghai. Amazing to know how well organised and systematic Chinese were in the ancient times. A place worth visiting if you go to Ningbo, a city where more rare earth magnets are made than in any other city of the world.

This is a great place to visit to get an insight into the way the Chinese lived in the past and even in some areas how they live now. Cicheng Ancient Town is open about 8.30am to 4.30pm and the price of admission is cheap, about $1.50 Aussie or 80RMB if my memory is correct. If you spend long enough walking around Ningbo you can still stumble upon ancient areas, where communities live the way the Chinese have for hundreds of years.
