Harbin Ice Lantern Show was founded in 1963, it is the oldest and largest Ice Lantern Show in the world nowadays. The show usually starts from early January to the end of February. Lots of artists make use of the original ice from Songhua River to create various ice sculptures. Besides hanging around the big park (around 2000 square meters) to see thousands of stunning ice arts, you can also try some ice sports, or even have an ice wedding.

Dress warm and then enjoy the sculptures and the food! The ice exhibits are fantastic, at night, when lit with the various colored lights. Sleigh rides are available too.

The information we found online about the different festival sites was a little confusing, but we decided to check out this site on our first evening. It was beautiful admiring all the many sculptures, and fun to stop in to drink a beer out of an ice mug! We're glad that we went to see this site before we went... More

I just visited the Ice Light Garden Party this early March. So special the ice lanterns were though some part of them was melted, not so perfect.

I felt like a seal or a penguin with the kind of layers I was wearing to go to the Ice Light Garden Party, but it all seemed worth it. The sculptures were beautiful, pieces of art created from ice that can be compared to any great work in the world. Its a pity these have to come down as... More

The ice garden is a nice place but very artificial: it is neon lights within ice blocks. The slides are done nicely and some sculptures like an ice bus are also fun but it is very commercial and not very refined. The snow sculptures are more refined.

Amazing artistry and wonderful experience. The sculptures were so large and impressive. Be sure to wear proper shoes and layer up as it is beyond cold (highly recommend a face covering of some sort). Be sure to see this attraction!

This is another interesting place. Its like a smaller version of the Ice and Snow World with a lot of different themes of smaller ice sculptures. It has a good snow landscape like pictures in the posters though. My only set back is that I went there during day time and they said that the night view of this place... More
