Sightseeing in Ningbo
A trip to Tianyi Ge is well-worth a visit. The library is home to a collection of intriguing regional treasures and artefacts of the Neolithic Hemudu culture which existed between 5500 BC and 3300 BC. Allow a couple of hours to wander around this series of pavilions and courtyards. It’s recommended to enter by the western gate and leave by the southern gate. After your visit, spend some time in the nearby verdant Yuehu Park.
