This is a relatively expensive attraction (we paid 300yuan, approx. 50usd), but it is one of the main highlight when visiting Harbin at that time of the year! The ice sculptures were amazing! If you take a closer look, it is really very exquisite. There was an walled area where people do their sculptures for competition, so we couldn't go... More

It's just amazing and exciting that you can see a lot of ice and snow be utilized like this since I can't see something like this in my country.

It's hard to believe that human can do that much with JUST ice. Very creative. And the sculptures are huge. But be prepared - it's very cold.

Northeastern China's Harbin is an amazing city with English-, Russian-, and Chinese-speaking populations living and working here. I know this because I have been an English teacher/missionary here since November, 2013. If you decide to journey to this gorgeous city, I highly recommend you come to see the Ice Festival. When I visited in January, 2014, it had some fun... More

Amazing views, buildings, huge area but SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO COLD! We had to run from one attraction to another just to keep our toes from falling off. We were wearing 3 pairs of socks, full on skii gear, wool and thermals. Do not go here if you did not have something to take the wind off, i.e. rain proofing. You will freeze.... More

Haerbin is located in the northeast of China, it is very cold in winter, so it is always covered with ice and snow in winter. Many people both Chinese and foreigners like to visit Haerbin in winter, not only because it is beautiful, but also it is fantastic. I visit Haerbin with my boyfriend in January, it is a good...

Visited back in Aug 2011. Unfortunately I didn't see the ice and snow around this time therefore, I can't write good review on that. Nevertheless, amusement park had its own bright sides. We have bumper cars and merry-go-arounds here. It was fun.

This is one of the most amazing experiences I've ever had. It's not cheap by local standards but it's worth every penny. As my girlfriend speaks some rudimentary Chinese we were able to go along with a local tour group which provided return transport within the standard ticket price. If we had not done that we would've been at the... More

It is very beautiful, I really like here. As I am from the very hot weather country this place is incredibly cold for me, If you want to come here you should prepare well your camera ( not all camera can use in this weather) and yourself for super very cold weather too.
