Family and relationships are important to them, and while they work hard, they know how to unwind too.

This correspondent, on a media trip to Ningbo, China on invitation from China Daily, walked around the historical block of Nantang on a Sunday evening to get a glimpse of the weekend activities of the local people, and to try out some of their traditional delicacies.

Families, friend groups and couples coexist in perfect harmony, while kids often ride piggyback, and are usually carrying balloons in cartoon shapes.

Traditional Chinese food is nothing quite like the 'Chinese' cuisine in Bangladeshi restaurants, but way more flavourful and interesting. Ningbo being a port town, seafood is a specialty of the cuisine, along with a locally brewed rice wine that remains a popular choice on the table.
