One of the best and sunny island in the world!!) Visited in the summer: Aug 2011. Absolutely loved the fresh air and the atmosphere in which I stayed at. Russian restaurants offered some of the most delicious and decorative foods! This is heaven for me and MY HOME TOWN--HAERBIN!!

The snow sculpture festival is amazing. Certain sculptures are huge and massive. We visited the expo on a very sunny day, perfect to take beautiful pictures. The night before some snow has covered the statues, all the powder snow was been removed by the staff of the park. It’s a pity that “especially” local tourist are not respecting the work... More

This is definitely worth a visit if you are in Harbin. The sculptures are amazing. We enjoyed the walk through the park in the day and then walked back across the river to our hotel. A must see if you are in Harbin!

Of course the snow sculptures are fabulous and the reason for visiting Harbin in Feb. Suggest seeing both during the day and at night when lit up. Also went to the Russian Village which was interesting, pleasant and walked back to town across the frozen river which was very nice. Looks like you could also take the cable car across... More

The Harbin ice sculptures are better known, but the snow sculptures in a nearby location are equally spectacular. These are best seen in the daytime (they do not have the internal illumination that is possible with the ice sculptures). Suggest visit Snow sculptures from 1-4 pm, then move on to the Ice Sculpture park. It is VERY cold, so wear... More

Enjoyed the visit, got to see the sculptures and walk around the park. It took about 2 hours. There are sleigh rides and slides, but did not partake in these attractions - kids would love them.

As others have said, plan to go to Sun Island during the day and the Ice and Snow Amusement World at night if you are here during the ice festival . You will cover a fair amount of ground if you want to see everything on foot, so consider the pollution level if you have more than one day in... More

To clarify: Sun Island is where both the Ice & Light Festival and the Snow Sculpture Park is. They are far from each other - you cannot walk. You don't need more than 2-3 hours (each) to do both. The bathroom situation is terrifying (by US standards, typical by CN tourist standards), try not to drink liquids. Taxis are impossible... More

OMG it only exists because it's sub-zero; but you knew that, right? So it's cold walking round this giant park. but on a clear blue day with no breeze, it's a great walk in the park. The snow sculptures change every year and they range from professional to university students. And some are amazing. they are all worth seeing though.... More

Sun Island was amazing. So different to the ice sculptures we'd seen the night before, but still a must see. If you happen to be there when some cartoon characters come out to dance, make sure you join in. It's a lot of fun for people of all ages. If its gets too cold, there is a great coffee shop... More
