One of the surprisingly clean old street located in China, not too many foreign tourists, with vast varieties of local special foods unique cafe and hotels. Worth for exploring and stay over night at the old street for foods and cafes hunting.

Remembering my 1st time here admiring the authentic food - the 小云吞、年糕. But year after year, it has expanded and evolved to be like another pedestrian zone and has lost its authentic, original touch!!! Who needs another Starbucks or a Hello Kitty Cafe?!!!

Nantang Old Street was probably given some form of artistic licence by the Ningbo authorities to re-build a representation of a end-of-19th century street to its current form. The area is home to a wide range of local food outlets and a smattering of western...More

You can get off at 鄞奉路尹江路口 (Yín fèng lù yǐn jiāng lùkǒu) if you're using bus no 161. As I know, you can't get there using subway. Good luck
