Very good place to visit. A lot of local food. No western food options, unfortunately a very good and original Pizza place named PARKHERE was closed.

It's all about food here! Definitely worth a visit if you love trying different bits of food however keep in mind that they're never the healthiest option BUT worth every calorie!

It’s a nice place for a afternoon/night walk. Make sure you get there with empty stomach and ready for all the different kinds of local food. The architecture makes this street old and cute.

We enjoyed our 2 hours here - it is a bit touristy but worth the visit. This is not an authentic ‘old’ village but very well reproduced. It runs alongside the Nanjiao River and is surrounded by interesting local housing (and life). It is full...More

It's sanitised and very crowded at weekends but it's cool with lots of snack foods. If you squint your eyes it is like being in China a hundred years ago. It's near the train and bus stations so you can check it out as you...More

Great place to experience local food in all the food stalls and restaurants. Very safe and you will find something to your taste. If you are not adventurous, you can go to the Starbucks in the 2nd phase.

I suppose you get streets like this everywhere in China, but that doesn’t detract from the fact it’s just a tourist trap. Rebuilt in old design it’s just full of touristy restaurants selling overpriced and sub par local food and shops selling expensive tat. Clearly...More

The "old street" is not old, but is a re-creation of historical Ningbo. There are plenty of quaint little shops and very good cafes and restaurants to visit.

Amazing food choices, collectibles and fruit drinks. Crazy aromas and smells intertwined. A must have are the meat kebabs and prawn batter fried. Do not takeaway, have there and then!

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
