The shows and the animals are amazing, but the space is heartbreaking.... I hope they will do something about it for the animals, as much money those animals bring in...

First of all, we reached Sun city quite late, almost 2 hrs before closing time and the ticket prices was relatively expensive. So we decided to pop indoors to Polarland. Ticket cost 80rmb for entrance and performance. This place is relatively lowly maintained, paint and deco peeling. But the place is clean and we were grateful for the indoor heating.... More

It's just a fun place to visit for families. The beluga show is just amazing. Other than that it's a pretty good and fun place to visit with families. Finding snacks to your choice is a a bit of a challenge though. Pretty good for China.

The Beluga Show is astonishing and really needs to be seen to be believed, however brace yourself for some tragic sights - particularly the plight of the polar bears. Just like with the Tiger Park, I left here with mixed emotions. Guilt that I'd paid to see some animals in abject misery, but also thrilled by the Beluga Show. We... More

If you don't like crowds pushing their way for the best view at others expense, stay away. If you can tolerate that, it's one of the nicer things to do in Harbin other than of course the ice festival. The shows are the main attraction as it is nicely done. Go early, get a good spot and hold your ground... More

Overall, so so. Nothing fantastic to rave about, except for the whale performance. The place is a little less well maintain but I must give the thumbs up for the whale performance.

This doesn't stack up to western aquariums, but the beluga whale show (about ten minutes) was not something I had seen before. Nor had I seen a trained walrus perform for a crowd -- was impressed with both the whales and walrus. The sea lion also performed well. Also saw polar bears, article fox, and article wolf in tanks, as... More

This was recommended to us and was nice but it was so crowded. The shows are in Mandarin so if you don't speak the language, don't bother...unless you love seals.

The main attraction of the Polar Land is the Beluga Show. It is beautifully choreographed on the song ' My heart will go on' and the two Belugas dance around like child's play.

All that's been said about animal abuse and tiny cages and so forth, obviously. The place is very crowded, extremely loud with bad music and endless announcements, full of screaming kids and adults. No place to sit down but a few cold drafty plastic picnic tables at a snack bar that has bad food steam and grease smells. Everything (like... More
