The cheapest rounds to China is not always the worst. The example to that is travel to China, to a small country town of Ningbo where can and expensive fitness centres in China or the SPA centres in China will not meet, but too is what to look.
Жд the branch lasting from Hangchow through Shaosin, comes to an end in NINGBO (actually «Warm waves») – the printsipny economic centre and ocean port in a northeast corner of the province. Despite the port status, the city actually costs in 20 km from the coast, in a place where the rivers Yuyao and Jun that in a uniform stream to continue the way to the ocean incorporate. Волкруг it marshy plains and rice fields were stretched, and along an interrupting shore the salt-mining and fishing enterprises last. The in itself city is not quite interesting, though there are some attractive objects, and is concrete, fine Library of Tyanyige and monasteries of China in suburbs of Ningbo. But for tourists this city matters, as a successful basic point for travel on the peninsula Putoshan lying nearby.
The history Ningbo is short, but is rich with events. In dynasty board Tan in the VII century here has been created difficult system of dams and channels, finally that the shallow, ebb-tide rivers became navigation, and at the end of the XII century for protection of port the breakwater has been constructed. Since then trade with Japan and Korea developed very actively – silk fabrics exchanged on precious gold. At tsars of a dynasty of Min Ninbo became an important seaport of China. One of the first he has tested foreign influence: by XVI century the local harbour was mastered actively by the Portuguese who have constructed warehouse and helping locals to resist to pirates, and in the XVIII century. The East Indian company has led fight for the right of trade here. Finally, in 1843, after Opium war, Ningbo has been declared by the city of free trade.
Soon, in 1861, the city was overflowed by Taypinsky revolt after which it has conceded the positions to Shanghai. Only since 1949 of Ningbo began to be built up and extend. The river was драгирована, passenger terminals and commodity docks have been constructed, new bridges of China are constructed. Ningbo became the centre of local chemical, food and metallurgical industry.
Rest in China from Krasnoyarsk is made time in a year of a hundred part, if not by thousands travellers.
