Time: 2008-05-05 Click: 18190
The Sanjiangkou Area, the junction area of the three rivers: the Yuyao River, the Fenghua River and the Yongjiang River, is the center of the Ningbo City. For its superior geological and facile transportation conditions, it grew into the heart of Ningbo a long time ago. Back in 821 of the Tang Dynasty, Governor Han Cha of Mingzhou (Ningbo), at the approval of Imperial Government, had the prefecture government relocated to this area. In this area, city walls and moats were then constructed and government offices established which marked the initial shaping of Ningbo City. Therefore, the Sanjiangkou Area can be said to be the birthplace of this historical city.

With the industrious work by generations of the Ningbo people, Sanjiangkou Area has become a hub of banking, commerce, foreign trade and cultural exchanges, and a bustling central business district as well.

Sanjiangiou Cultural Zone covers an area of 1.5 hectares, consisting of Jiangnan Quarter, Jiangbei Quarter and Jiangdong Quarter, which respectively take on three different features, namely, modern, western and traditional. It is the mainstay of the Three-Rivers Cultural Corridor undergoing construction. In the Cultural Zone stand a great number of skyscrapers and cluster an even bigger number of businesses, thus giving a thriving and prosperous ambiance. At night, when the city is brightly lighted by the numerous colorful lamps and neon lights, the three bridges over the rivers are turned into three dragons mounting the clouds and riding the mist. Visitors to this area may find themselves in dreamland and get a feel of the animating and booming city.

Some major places of interest in the area are: East Zhongshan Road, New Century Square, Ningbo Movie City, Fort Site of Taipingtianguo, Ningbo Old Bund Area, Catholic Church, Qing''an Guild Hall, Tianyi Square.
