There is a story, is it a mood or a dream? I always like cities with history, culture and taste. Ningbo, my native place; the second day witnessed the prosperity and prosperity of Tancheng in the past.

Ningbo 2nd:

DAY1: Shanghai-Shanghai-Hangzhou Expressway-Shenhai Expressway (Hangzhou Bay Cross-sea Bridge)-Yongtaiwen Expressway (Yuwang Tiantong Exit)-Tiantong Temple, the whole journey is about 250KM, the highway toll is 170 yuan (Shanghai section 30 yuan, 140 yuan in Zhejiang). Tickets for Tiantong Temple are collected free of charge at the scenic service center. After traveling to the Old Bund in Jiangbei District, Ningbo, stay at the Best Western Ningbo Jianghua Hotel, which is bought by Ctrip.com. After a short break, enjoy dinner at the Four Seasons Cruise Restaurant on the waterfront (Public Review Online Group Buy 4 Person Package). Night, light rain, stroll around the Old Bund and experience the old shadow of Chen Xiang.

DAY2: Check out of the hotel after breakfast, drive about 20KM to Cicheng, the first ancient county in Jiangnan, witness the vicissitudes of thousands of years of history, and experience a long history of Confucian customs. After going home.

First stop: Tiantong Temple

The ancient temple Tiantong Temple is located at the foot of Taibai Mountain in Dongxiang, Yinzhou, 25 kilometers east of Ningbo. It was built in the Jin Dynasty and has a history of more than 1,700 years. According to legend, monks from the Western Jin Dynasty, Yixing monk, traveled here, settled down in mountains, and worked hard. A boy in the uninhabited mountain delivered water to him every day until the temple was completed. The boy resigned to the monk Yixing: "I'm Taibai Jinxing, the emperor Jade sees you refined and devout, and sends me into a boy to take care of you. Now I'm done. It ’s time to finish. "After leaving Tengyun, future generations will take the Taibai Mountain and Tiantong Temple.

Tiantong Temple has three independent mountain gates. The first mountain gate is called "Fuhu Pavilion", the second mountain gate is called "Ancient Mountain Gate", and the third mountain gate is called "Jingqian Pavilion". "Qianting" is about three miles away.

Surrounded by mountains around Tiantong Temple, it is heavily stacked with ancient green pines. Song Wang Anshi described Tiantong when he was a county magistrate in Shexian County: "Mountains and mulberries are floating in the air, and spring warblers are crying in the valley. Twenty miles are loose, and Qingshan holds the Fan Palace."

In front of the temple, there is a verdant bamboo forest in the "Seven Pagoda Garden", which covers the sky.

The scale of Tiantong Temple is huge. Even the release pond has two inside and out. To excavate these two ponds in Tang Dynasty, it had spent more than 20,000 manpower, so it is commonly called "wangong pond". The clear water reflects the peaks and peaks of Wan Muyu, and the scenery is extremely beautiful. The release pond is not only the main place for releasing Buddhist things, but also the main source of water for fire fighting.

When you came to the Buddha Hall (Daxiongbaodian), Tiantong Temple was included in one of the five Zen monasteries.

The Buddha said: the origins of the fate disappear, the fate gathers and the fate is scattered, everything is God's will. The most precious thing in the world is not 'unavailable' and 'lost', but happiness that can be grasped now.

Many of the temples in Tiantong Temple follow the mountain, step by step, rigorous layout and well-made. Ascending from the top, you can enjoy the whole temple and the surrounding mountains.

The old road went down the mountain, and the old pilgrims walked into the mountain hurriedly along the way, and the young tourists took a rest and played. Tao said Amitabha, Tiantong Temple!

Second stop: Old Bund

A 30-kilometer journey from Tiantong Temple outside the city to the old Bund in the city. When mentioning the Bund, the first thing people think of is probably the Bund of Shanghai. After the signing of the "Nanjing Treaty" in 1842, Ningbo was opened as one of the five ports for trade, and Sanjiangkou became a place where European and American merchant ships gathered. Chinese and foreign businesses are rushing to build storefronts on the shore, so this place is known as the Bund. Ningbo Bund is the earliest Bund in Chinese history.

Stay at the hotel opposite the Old Bund, where the location is superior and the transportation is convenient.

Opening the window facing the road can admire the architecture of the Old Bund, and the leisure services presented by the hotel are absolutely value.

For the night view of the river, a cruise restaurant was booked in the evening, which is a place to eat the environment. The dishes are still fresh and delicious, and it is really luxurious and corrupt.

Sit on the deck after a meal, it's cozy. Unique viewing angles, to enjoy the scenery on both sides of the Old Bund, a light face-to-face but beautiful I can not forget.

After a century of loneliness, the old Bund coexisted with nostalgia and fashion, and the precipitation of history and the prosperity of modernity merged into one.

Unconsciously, when I reached the bar street, the warm and dim lights, the hoarse singing voice of the singer on the stage, a little messy and noisy.

I didn't go to the bar for the night cold. Maybe this venting atmosphere is no longer suitable for weeding, weaving around and turning to Starbucks by the corner, it's time to sleep after drinking a glass.

The landmark of the Old Bund, the Catholic Church, has a typical Roman Gothic style. It is a pity that a sudden fire was burned in the early morning of July 28 this year. It is currently under construction and has a special look before leaving. Whether sad or happy, I have been to the Old Bund!

Third stop: Cicheng

Thousand-year-old Cicheng, the first ancient county town in the south of the Yangtze River, has long been eager for a long time. Ningbo 2nd finally got what it wanted. Fortunately, it will!

Historical Records: King Zhou Yuan was three years old, and the king of Yue went to practice the city-Gouyu. This is the earliest ancient name of Cicheng, and it was later renamed "sentence". Twenty-six years after Tang Kaiyuan, Cixi County was established, and the city was named "Cicheng".

After more than 2,400 years of historical precipitation, Cicheng has extremely deep cultural heritage. From the Tang, Song to Ming and Qing dynasties, more than 500 scholars came out of the Cicheng area, known as "the best of the best, the best of scholars, the best of others, the talents of the city"; in modern times, Zhou Xinfang, Qin Runqing, Yingchang emerged A large number of celebrities and celebrities such as Ji, Tan Jiayi and Feng Jicai.

Came over by car and entered Cicheng without notice. Cicheng in front of the town is not the same as most of the ancient towns in the south of the Yangtze River. It basically restores the appearance of an ancient county town.

If you wander around the ancient city, there are no tickets. You need to buy a ticket to visit the four attractions of the joint ticket (25 yuan for the county, 20 yuan for the Confucian Temple, 15 yuan for the academy hall, and 30 yuan for the Qingdao Temple). The list price of the joint ticket is 75 yuan. Ctrip.com paid 45 yuan for the on-site booking, but the remote view of Taoism was abandoned due to time constraints. There are also Feng Yu Zhai joint tickets (Feng Yu Zhai 40 yuan, mother's art exhibition 30 yuan), joint ticket listing price of 70 yuan, Ctrip booking 42 yuan. If you have time to visit all the above attractions, the unified ticket Ctrip.com will book 80 yuan.

Zhenjiefang was established by Han Lin Feng Youjing for his mother Liu during the Ming and Wan Dynasties. The workshop was open in a high-relief, open-carving technique, with clear layers and strong artistry.

Beating the drums and making injustices, going to court to decide ... Do I watch too many historical dramas? Gucheng, the most interesting city in Cicheng, must see for itself!

I saw the plaque of the county cricket saying "Cixi County" instead of "Cixi County". The original county seal was lost during the Yongle period of Ming Dynasty, and I was afraid of being used to do bad things, so I asked the court to rename it "Cixi County".

Different from the historical drama, the county hall is only a small public hall. In reality, the county hall is very large. Each department of the public hall, money house, household house, and criminal house has its own "office."

The most striking thing in Guxian County is the display of the culture of clean officials and corrupt officials, warning future generations!

The squares on the wall indicate that the Cixi county magistrates of the past dynasties, most of them are officials.

Scales and mirrors remind the officials that they should be fair and impartial, and that they should be aware of everything.

With copper as a mirror, you can correct the crown; ancient as a mirror, you can know the replacement; with a human as a mirror, you can understand the gains and losses.

This ancient road is a real relic. I don't understand why tourists now like to throw money on it, why?

Those things of the Ming Dynasty, Zhang Juzheng's 32-lifted sedan restoration model (look at this, think about what the current cadres are in a BMW or Mercedes ?! Hehe).

Seeing Xi Da's figure, haha!

After a few steps out of the county, you reached the Chenghuang Temple, and there was a "Cicheng Rice Cake Experience Museum" next to it, and lunch was settled here!

"China on the Tongue"-Ningbo rice cakes do have a unique way of eating and taste, order a fried rice cake set to try, very sticky and delicate.

After eating rice cakes, I went to the Confucian Temple in the center of Cicheng and breathed the ancient culture of Kong Xian.

The academy's hall, which is called the exam shed by the people, is a place for children to test in the feudal imperial examination system. Those who pass the exam are talents.

Seeing this exam angry Yu Xuanang, well-informed, must be an exam.

Look at this one again, a look of absent-mindedness, can't help but sigh "It's been a long time, not today."

The deepest part of Cicheng-Cihu, surrounded by mountains on three sides, and facing the city on one side, the green mountains and green waters are reflected in the lake, giving Cicheng a touch of spirituality.

Cihu looks very quiet. Even on the weekend, there are no people, and there are no cruise ships for tourists. This kind of Cihu may seem mediocre at first glance, but if you are a quiet person, take a long walk along the loess road by the lake, and you will gain a pleasant pleasure.

It's getting dark, and they are visiting Zhaomalou Fanzhuang near Cihu. The winding and secluded quiet place makes people who do not know that this is a place to eat will mistakenly think that they broke into the private courtyard.

I ordered a few special dishes from the Drum Tower: distiller's grains with walnuts, honey husks, earthen salted tofu, copper bowl river prawns, and we went home soon.

There is no shortage of fun places, all that is missing is the sight of discovery and exploration. Ningbo Second Day, new elements of old attractions, can also be fun!
