Taogong Island Scenic Area

Taogong Island is named after Fan Li, also known as Taozhugong. Fan Li was a minister of the Yue Kingdom during the Spring and Autumn Period (770-221 BC). After a successful war campaign against the Wu Kingdom, Fan lived in seclusion with Xi Shi, one of the legendary Four Beauties of China, and eventually became a business tycoon.

The island is considered one of the most auspicious and most romantic places in Ningbo.
