Came to experience the extreme Cold and the amazing ice and snow Wonderland in the far North of China. Be awe by the sight and the constant awareness of being frozen if you have not prepared for it. The place was huge with life size ice sculptures and there were lots of fun rides including snow tubing, sleigh, skating and... More

Such amazing structures! It is so amazing to see. We went on CNY day and the crowd was ok, not packed but comfortably busy. Totally recommend and two hours is enough time. We took a tour from the hotel so we could be dropped off and collected at the end. The parking is very hectic so we took a pic... More

Go there around 4pm just shortly before it gets dark. Have your taxi driver waiting for you. Most of the drivers will organise your entry cards. Dress in layers, it is very cold at night.

Glad we went - we visited the Ice and Snow world park at night, and both the art and the lighting was cool to see. The lighting needs work, that's for sure, don't expect subtlety - but take it for what it is, and it certainly was a fun night out. Be prepared for the rather intense cold - at... More

Main attraction at Ice Festival. Aside from being very cold, the site was truly amazing. The mass of sculptures and lights just unbelievable. Also has places to warm up from the frigid temps.

We were in Shenyang but used the chance to see the Ice and Snow Festival. It is unbelievable what they build within a few weeks from the ice blocks of the Songhua river.

Absolutely amazing. Go soon after midday, and stay through sunset and the light show. Stunning. I was there late January, sculptures still in mint condition, but without the crowds and queues.
