Ningbo is described as a second tier city which means it doesn't quite have the status of Shanghai about two hours drive to the north east, but with a population of almost eight million for the municipality and a history dating back to 4800BC it is by standards any other than in China a very large and busy city.
As with all Chinese cities an enormous amount of development is the norm. Driving in from the airport it is easy to see the layers and stages where this has taken place. There are areas built in the 70s and 80s which already are showing their age and look ready to be replaced.
