About Ningbo City
Ningbo is among the busiest ports in the world. Its hinterland, particularly nearby Putuoshan, are popular tourist destinations in Eastern China. Ningbo's "old town" and urban core is centered on the confluence of the Yong and Yuyao Rivers. The area was anciently known as Y?ng from nearby Yong Hill; Yong is still used as Ningbo's abbreviation in modern Chinese. The Yong empties on Hangzhou Bay and the East China Sea and the Ningbonese have had a deep affinity for the ocean throughout their history. The voyages of Xu Fu, sent by the First Emperor in search of the islands of immortality and sometimes credited with initiating the sinicization of Japan, departed from here. Its temples later served as an important staging point in the introduction of Buddhism to Japan.
Ningbo's tourist industry includes museums, the few historic sites downtown and its temples, nature reserves, and preserved ancient towns in the countryside. The Siming range lies within the municipality, as does the Hemudu archaeological site. Hemudu was the type site for the Yue civilization that flourished south of the Yangtze River prior to its sinicization by trade and invasion during the Zhou dynasty. Ninghai and Xiangshan Counties lie south of the main Chuanshan Peninsula.
