Lived there, done that!  weather sucks, wet cold and rains a lot!!!

smog is very bad, its very far from the ocean considering it seems closer and the ocean is mainly shipping and no beaches.

People drive scooters like maniacs and no courtesy. compared to numerous other cities Ive driven motos bicycles and scooters.

food prices are high and the markets usually sell outdated food stuff, including vanguard and Tesco.

its a clothing factory town that makes fashion clothes for mainly chinese brands.

people have money so they drive expensive cars and try to run you over driving the wrong way because they have an expensive relative to a chinese brand.

good luck.....I have no desire to go back there.

Yes. Lots of kids with red banners. Lots of factories make "heading machines". Ningbo is the world capital of silver tipped electrical contacts.

No, but I know a guy who was living there. From what I understand it's a nice place to live.

The air is so polluted that ashes fall from the sky like black snowflakes.  I have been to at least 20 cities in China.  Of all of those cities, the women of Ningbo are the ugliest.

A:Can a new employer help you? Possibly but it's really hard to say for sure. I used to be involved in hiring new teachers and a couple of times we had people we wanted to hire who were having trouble with their old school - situations similar to yours. Our school was legally able to hire foreign teachers, did everything by the book and was well connected, usually schools that mess people around with visa stuff aren't operating legally so a call from our visa guy to theirs telling them they were breaking the law, we were in the middle of processing the visa stuff with the PSB and the next phone call they got regarding this teacher was likely to be from the PSB asking some hard questions was usually enough to get them to co-operate. No school doing illegal stuff wants the PSB getting too interested in what they're doing. There's a chance a new employer could figure something out if they really want to hire you but these are difficult times, their hands might be tied too.    -- Stiggs
