While we went during the day and did not witness any lights... This place was better than Ice & Snow World (IMO). Again, truly amazing on how these sculptures are developed. Very clean park environment as the setting. Open taxis, at a fee, if you get tired of walking. And last, but not least, the frozen lake for activity. Truly... More

The snow sculptures were outstanding!! From the very large carvings to the wonderfully detailed student carvings we were amazed. If it was just a bit warmer we would have stayed longer to play on the ice. Just a note if you are going, it is cheaper to go at night and children are 1/2 price.

The snow sculptures were just amazing, just for your info the whole park is not used during the ice & snow festival.... only a part of it is used to display the sculptures, so not a good idea to buy the bus tickets as you will not use it....

Go to Harbin, even for just the Snow Sculptures, but the Ice Sculptures, Tiger Sanctuary and more makes this trip worthwhile. The Snow sculptures are Huuuge (do I hear Donald Trump?), just fantastic. Not to be missed.

Incredible, you have to keep asking yourself if this is really snow?! Hit the park close to sunset, the lighting is amazing! Was worth it to take the little shuttle bus up, you can only stay out so long in these temps.

Nymphs, animals, figures from Chinese legends, monumental castles, galleons, English fortresses: it's all here in China's most stunning display of ice and snow sculpture workmanship.

During the International Snow & Ice Festival you can see amazing snow sculptures. There are so many in varying shapes and sizes that it is difficult to see them all.
