What are the pros and cons of living in Ningbo?

Expats, digital nomads and retirees living in Ningbo responded:

"Expats and digital nomads living in Ningbo appreciate the city's low cost of living, its convenient transportation system, and its proximity to Shanghai. They also enjoy the city's vibrant nightlife, its delicious cuisine, and its friendly locals.
