A Confluence of Rivers & Cultures
Earlier that day, you entered Ningbo from the Hangzhou Bay Bridge, one of the longest transoceanic bridges in the world. History unfolds in Tianyi Pavilion. You find the oldest library in Ningbo, one of China’s oldest cities. Within the richly-wrought building beside Moon Lake, thousands of books and memoirs collectively weave a vivid tapestry of China’s intriguing story. You soak it all in. When dusk falls, in the changing light, the Old Bund – the oldest in the country – subtly transforms from a daytime shopping hive into a nocturnal party haunt. Waves of foreign influences that have swept over this city for hundreds of years are visible in the Dutch- and English-style buildings, and the cobblestoned streets.
Your Home in Ningbo
After further sightseeing, it is time to call it a day. Comfort and indulgence is not far away. It is waiting at Shangri-La Hotel, Ningbo – your home during your stay in this enthralling city. The “calm waves” that gave this city its name are recreated in the hotel’s wavy façade. This architectural feature makes it easy to recognize the iconic building from anywhere. You’ll always find your way back here with no trouble – just like coming home.
562 spacious and well-appointed rooms and suites blend a style of classical elegance with oriental touches. You will feel the sense of renewal the moment you walk into the hotel. The warm decoration and well-designed furniture enhance the cosy and relaxed ambience. Back in your room, you enjoy a commanding view of where the rivers converge. It reminds you that Ningbo sprung from the confluence of three rivers to become a major sea port.

A sanctuary of tranquillity inspired by the legend of Shangri-La, CHI offers a range of specialised body, water, massage and facial therapies based on the ancient healing traditions, philosophies and Asian rituals.
