Life in Ningbo

Ningbo is a dynamic, modern city steeped in thousands of years of history. Eight million people live in this port city at the mouth of the Yangtze, and the Ningbonese people are known for their entrepreneurialism and innovation, as well as their famed Jiang’nan cuisine.

Surrounded by mountains and nature, Ningbo has plenty to see and do and enjoys warm summers and mild winters. Many staff members value being able to readily access both a vibrant city and the countryside so easily. Whilst Dongqian lake – which offers hiking and biking trails as well as water sports – is close to campus, there are plenty of shopping centres and city activities to explore, too. Ningbo has always been home to people from all over the world, and as a result the city has many international restaurants, supermarkets and shops.

Ningbo has fantastic transport links to cities all over China and is within hours of other major cities such as Hong Kong, Shanghai, Nanjing and Hangzhou, as well as countryside getaways and tourist spots such as the Zhoushan island chain. Ningbo is home to high speed train stations and an international airport with links to Bangkok, Tokyo and Singapore and other regional hubs.
