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

It is funny to go, it is in front of the Snow festival, it is not so expensive and have some amusing shows, like the one of the belugas. Interesting for the children

It's a cross between a zoo and an aquarium; and that makes it unique in its own way. As it's already well-described by many, I shall offer some tips if you love to see/photograph artic animals like polar bears, snow wolves, snow foxes....and the lovely and ever-active belugas - watch out for them at their own exhibit area as well...
