    Useful Information


    Your passport must be valid for at least six months after the expiry date of your visa and you’ll need at least one entire blank page in your passport for the visa. You may be required to show proof of hotel reservations and onward travel from China, as well as a bank statement showing you have $100 in your account for every day you plan to spend in China.

    A standard 30-day single-entry visa can be issued from most Chinese embassies abroad in three to five working days. Express visas cost twice the usual fee. In some countries (eg the UK and the US) the visa service has been outsourced from the Chinese embassy to a Chinese Visa Application Service Centre, which levies an extra administration fee. In the case of the UK, a single-entry visa costs £30, but the standard administration charge levied by the centre is a further £36.

    A standard 30-day visa is activated on the date you enter China, and must be used within three months of the date of issue. 60-day and 90-day tourist visas are reasonably easy to obtain in your home country but difficult elsewhere. To stay longer, you can extend your visa in China at least once, sometimes twice.

    Visa applications require a completed application form (available at the embassy or downloaded from its website) and at least one photo (normally 51mm x 51mm). You normally pay for your visa when you collect it. A visa mailed to you will take up to three weeks. In the US and Canada, mailed visa applications have to go via a visa agent, at extra cost. In the US, many people use the China Visa Service Center, which offers prompt service. The procedure takes around 10 to 14 days.

    Hong Kong is a good place to pick up a China visa. However, at the time of writing only Hong Kong residents were able to obtain them direct from the Visa Office of the People’s Republic of China. Single-entry visas processed here cost HK$200, double-entry visas HK$300, while six-month/one-year multiple-entry visas are HK$500. But China Travel Service (CTS) and many travel agencies in Hong Kong can get you a visa in two to three working days. Expect to pay HK$650 for a single-entry visa and HK$750 for a double-entry. Both American and UK passport holders must pay considerably more for their visas. Be aware that political events can suddenly make visas more difficult to procure or renew.

    Chinese law requires foreign visitors to carry their passport with them at all times; it is the most basic travel document and all hotels (and internet cafes) will insist on seeing it. You also need it to buy train tickets or to get into some tourist sights, particularly those which are free.

    It’s a good idea to bring an ID card with your photo in case you lose your passport. Even better, make photocopies, or take digital photos of your passport – your embassy may need these before issuing a new one. You should also report the loss to the local Public Security Bureau (PSB).

    Please be kindly noted that the organizing committee is not authorized to assist with the VISA process beyond providing the Invitation Letter. The invitation letter of conference organizing committee cannot guarantee the approval of visa application. Should your application be denied, the organizing committee of the conference cannot change the decision of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, nor will the organizing committee engage in discussion or correspondence with the consulate or the visa center on behalf of the applicant.

    Get In & Around Ningbo

    By Air
    Lishe Airport is about 11 kilometers (7 mi) from downtown Ningbo, about 20 minutes' drive. The taxi fare should be ¥45-60. Alternatively, a shuttle bus to South Ningbo Railway Station runs every hour until 18:00 (¥10). Local bus service is also available (¥2).

    There are regular flights to Beijing, Guangzhou, Shenyang, Xi'an, Xiamen, Nanchang, Haikou, Shantou, Shenzhen, Changsha, Nanjing, Kunming, Chengdu, Lanzhou, Zhuhai, Hefei, Guilin, Chongqing, Dalian, Qingdao, Wuhan, Fuzhou, Harbin, and Urumqi in Mainland China; Macao and Hong Kong; Kaohsiung on Taiwan; Fukuoka in Japan; Incheon in South Korea; and Bangkok in Thailand.

    By Train
    Ningbo Railway Station
    Centrally located with downtown hotels a short taxi ride away. Metro Line 2 serves the station. Taxis are not permitted to pick up new fares in the drop-off area outside the station, but are usually readily available at a queue in the basement. The ticket offices are open from 06:15-19:45 to the left of the main entrance. Tickets can be purchased on the first or second floor; tickets which have been booked online may only be picked up at the office on the second floor.

    From Hangzhou
    Many high-speed trains (Gaotie or "G" trains) are available daily from Hangzhou East Railway Station. These take about 1 hour and cost ¥80-100.
    There are another 10 or so normal trains from Hangzhou's City Station (城站) which are cheaper but average slightly longer travel times.

    From Shanghai
    All trains from Shanghai to Ningbo go through Hangzhou. High speed trains are available from Shanghai Hongqiao Railway Station (上海虹桥站). These take 2-3 hours and cost between ¥100-150.
    Normal trains are available from Hongqiao Station or from Shanghai South Railway Station (上海南站). These take 4-5 hours and cost around ¥50.

    Downtown Ningbo can fill a few days but is similar to most major Chinese cities. To see some really jaw-dropping parts, you have to get out to the suburbs and countryside, where you will meet the kindest of people with the warmest of smiles and breathtaking mountain ranges steeped in thousands of years of history that has been relatively undisturbed.

    Get Around

    Ningbo Rail Transit operates Lines 1 and 2, the former having stations which service the airport and railway station. Plans call for an additional four lines by 2020, of which Line 4 will service East Railway Station.

    Taxis are ¥10 for the first 3.5 km. Be aware that a ¥1 "fuel tax" is added to the fare in addition to the price displayed by the meter. As is common throughout China, you should expect no comprehension of English from the driver. Print the addresses in Chinese in advance will be helpful.

    Busses are usually ¥2, although some older lines without air-conditioning cost ¥1 and some longer lines charge according to distance. Stops are not displayed or announced in English.

    Bike sharing is prevalent. Users will need to install the particular smartphone app specific to the company to rent a bike. Prices are around ¥2 for 30 minutes.

    Attractions in Ningbo

The present Baoguo Temple is a mixture of constructions made by various dynasties. ¥12.

    Ayuwang (Ashoka) Temple
    (bus 759 or 790 from Ningbo East Bus Station) Legend says the Sheli Pagoda here wasn't built, but rose from the ground. This active monastery 20 km (12 mi) from Ningbo houses a bone fragment of Sakyamuni, Buddhism's founder, as well as artifacts, paintings and calligraphy - some personally written by Chinese emperors. Legend has it that the monk who found it was looking for one of the many Sheli pagodas that the Indian ruler Ayuwang (Ashoka) had established throughout the world. The monk was walking in the area and heard a bell ringing from underground. He sat down and prayed for three days and three nights, at which point the pagoda came surging up from beneath the ground. A temple was eventually completed on the site in 522 and named.

A total of 119 Chinese herbal medicines found here are included in the China Pharmacopoeia. For this reason it bears the name "natural botanical garden in east Zhejiang Province.
