Tengtou Village, arguably the best village of China, is worth a visit to discover its rustic and environmentally friendly atmosphere and to get a taste of the bucolic life. Near Ningbo City, it has been recognized by the United Nations for its ecological care and was on display at the Expo 2010 Shanghai, the largest international world fair.

Tengtou's charm lies in what makes it a modern village without industrialization. The tourism and environmental protection is mutually beneficial. Power is clean and recyclable and the cultural relics are well-preserved.
