A must!

Mind you that there are several "ice and snow" places, make sure to go to the "right one", i.e. the ICE World. The entrance fees are quite high, nevertheless a MUST see!

I actually lived here and it was dreadful unless you're an Eskimo. It's too frigid. However, this is a beautiful city to visit. The reason Harbin is on the map is because of the Ice Festival and thus the reason to come here. It is truly amazing how the city could be built and not thaw out for such an... More

We visited last Friday night. Some melting throughout, but still fun. We paid 270 yuan each at hotel, and got tickets and transportation. Long wait on the ice slides for adults, but worth it. We recommend the chutes on the plastic sleds over the tube slide, if you have to pick one. We went down together, and it was really... More

The Snow and Ice worlds were amazing to behold! The Snow one for the day, and the Ice for the night. Get a guide for the Ice show- It cost RMB200 extra but at least they explain the theme of the sculptures and make it all the more worthwhile. Definitely worth a visit in the winter!

This was a once in life time opportunity and I'm so glad we braved the cold for it. Kids loved the slides and activities. Snow and ice sculptures were incredible. It's very, very crowded, which is the only down part.

I was wondering if and when all the ice melts, the water would be enough to sustain an entire village in Sub Saharan Africa. That is how much Ice there is in this place but not strewn around or blocked up together, but crafted and created into winter time Master pieces that present a opportunity for visitors to see how...

This attraction covers a much larger area than Zhaolin Park, although it has fewer detailed ice sculptures. To compensate it has more huge compressed snow sculptures as well as buildings constructed from ice blocks, a bit like large transparent Lego blocks. There are a number of slides and, in the far corner, a small ski slope, but the queues for... More
