What you'll do

In this activity, we will take a tour in the central part of Ningbo, visiting the one of the oldest private library in China, take a glimpse of a stylish city museum and have a bite of Ningbo History. We will then wander around the old bund where the trading activities and expats used to prosper, tell a bit of the old scenes of the bund and indulge in the city light and clamor of the crowd. In addition, I will give a little lesson about 宁波话, which is the subbranch of the second widest used dialect (after Cantonese), the dialect of Wu. As for food, of course we cannot miss it, for the lunch break we will go to a local owned restaurant and enjoy some most traditional Ningbo local dishes; for dinner, we will go to a historical snack shop that serves a wide range of snacks including the famous Ningbo sweet dumplings 宁波汤圆.

Barry

I am a local free lancer teacher, a street photographer, an Airbnb Host and a world traveler. As I live and travel to more places around the world, I start to realize it is time to share with people about my reminiscences and affections about my own city - Ningbo. I used to be the coordinator for local language schools to help expats settle and know the city and I also acquired certain level of local history via interactions with elders in the city. I am also a street photographer who is keen on capturing the changing urban landscapes and remaining cultural practices.
