you visit Harbin for this

you will be amazed by beautiful massive ice sculptures and bitterly cold Manchurian winter especially if you are from a tropical country.

The ice carving museum here is open year long. It is an expensive place because other than the entrance fee of RMB 30 for this park, the entry to the museum costs RMB 110 and since the inside temperature was less than -10 degrees Celsius, there is an additional fee of RMB 20 for an overcoat and a pair of...

Coming to see the ice sculptures was the main reasons we visited Harbin and we were thrilled with the many, many amazing ice sculptures lit up at night. The Harbin Ice and Snow Amusement Park was one of the highlights of our visit to Harbin.We put SnowTracks on the bottoms of our boots so that we wouldn't slip and slide.... More

This park should be visited after dark as the ice sculptures are lit up. It is really cold so dress warmly. We took our ski clothes which were perfect. A good scarf, hat and gloves are essential. The ice 'sculptures' are not carved but rather built from from ice blocks but these buildings are huge. We were able to climb... More

All the sculptures were amazing and the colors so beautiful. The night was ridiculously cold (5°F/-15°C) but luckily they had an exhibition hall that was super warm to get the feeling back in my fingers. The ice sphere chandelier was my favorite of the sculptures/displays. Please go if you ever get the chance. Just remember to bundle up (4 layers... More

Amazing how the ice sculptures are made! The ice attractions are very pretty. Make sure to bring extra batteries: gadget power seems to drain fast in the cold weather. And don't forget to bring gloves with gadget-friendly fingerpads!

Pros: Incredibly beautiful, about a 15 minute drive from the city centre, the entire town has a snow and ice theme. Cons: Foreigners pay more. I went to Harbin as I live about 6 hours away by train in Dalian. I was not expecting it to be that cold. I wore seven layers of tops, two coats and three trousers.... More

I had heard about this festival long before I even considered going to China, so I had high expectations. However it was somewhat unimpressive. To give this internationally renowned festival the benefit of the doubt; I went the last week of the festival so the sculptures were a bit dirty and melted, and I went later in the day which...

My date of visit is a bit misleading since I used to live in Harbin several years ago (worked as an English teacher back in 2012). Regardless, this place was amazing! The sights were spectacular and I loved the giant ice slide. I wouldn't have went if my school didn't offer a free trip for the teachers, but I am... More
