DID YOU KNOW ?
The port of Ningbo is one of the world's busiest ports. The statistics in 2010 showed that total cargo throughput was 627,000,000 tonnes and container throughput 13,144,000 TEUs. With bulk container breakdowns, hugely improved logistics, and massive chemical and foodstuff, processing developments, Ningbo could yet win the race with Shanghai as port of choice for servicing the Chinese east coast.
WHAT TO PACK
It is recommended to exchange at least some money -- just enough to cover airport incidentals and transportation to the hotel -- before you leave home, so you can avoid unpleasant queues at the airport ATMs.
