This is the place where they hold the annual Beer Festival. You get all sorts of beer from around the world. Its cheap and fantastic. Do go earlier as there would be alot of people going there during the evening.

The size of the sculptures are truly amazing. As well as the intricacy in the carving. We did take the trolley bus to get from the entrance to the farthest point, and then walked back in stages. The husky sled ride is a rip-off ... too short ... just for a short circuit. You pay for the photo-op.

all under construction or closed, the locals try to charge you double or triple the normal price, if i didn't speak chinese i would have been ripped off really badly. the russian show on the island is really embarrisingly bad and they torture crocodiles making them dance and pose for tourists if you want a photo for 5rmb, terrible place....

On our trip to Harbin we went to the Sun Island Snow Park in the daytime and the Ice Festival at night. The snow sculptures are massive. Most are larger than 3 story houses. The fine details in the carvings are absolutely amazing.

We fed the carp in the lake. It was very hot the day we were there and there is limited seating to rest in... More

An enormous garden with loads of attractive spots. Nature, water, flowers... That's for the summer! It's also the venue for the famous ice festival in winter. We crossed the river via cable car, which was a great experience-not to be missed! As for the gardens after you arrive, they are amazingly well kept, there are cable cars that ferry people... More

Was blown away by the snow sculpture on display everything from tractors, to smurfs to presidents , even a hamburger all very lifelike. We visited on a very sunny but very cold January day but ~I loved this place. There was an opportunity to ice carve but this may have been because we were with an organised tour (Travelsphere). My...

This is a large & beautiful garden of 38sq km with many scenic spots. You need to travel in the electric tram from one spot to another to save your legs’ energy and time. The main attraction spots are the Sun Water Fall, the Squirrel Island, the Clove Garden and the most important place is the Indoor Ice-Lantern Exhibition Hall.... More
