It was a sunny but cold day and the best way to see the artwork. We went the week of CNY and the crowds were small and manageable. We walked casually around the park which is very spread out and with lunch and a little shopping, it took us 4.5 hours as we wanted to see everything. So amazing to... More

We went there around 11 am and it was not full and very quite. Most of the tourists are locals. Fantastic place with hundreds of snow and ice figures. There is a cafe where you can drink Chinese traditional green tee with sweet pop corn.

Very small and not so many sculptures. 330rmb for adults and 160rmb for children, but you still have to pay for enjoying some rides inside. There are no taxis at the exit so we had to wait a lot and finally pay an excessive amount to go back to our hotel. The Ice and snow festival is much better and... More

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.... I never did. Also, as many people have reviewed the entrance... More

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.
