The beluga show is one of its kind in the world where there was amazing chemistry between the beluga and their trainers! However, the exhibits that the animals were housed in were way too small which is quite heartbreaking.

The beluga (white whale, 白鲸) show is - as most people say - outstanding. Come early before viewing time and go to the lower level below the surface! Also stay for a few minutes after the show - the divers sometimes make some extra practice rounds with the whales. The sealion/walrus show is also very good even if it helps... More

The place is little bit pricey with ticket price of 150RMB (adult). There are some fishes to be seen and penquins, polar bears etc. The big bears, for example, are living in really small gages so many of us my start to feel only sad when seeing them. The best parts are sea lion and beluga shows. Better to be... More

We went there August 2016. 150¥ per person isn't cheap. You can see everything in 1,5-2h. They have show for sea lion 11.00,13.00 and 15.00 o'clock and beluga whale show 12.00, 14.00 and 16.00 o'clock. The shows are crowded and no chance to get a seat. Positive: My favorite was beautiful beluga show, very very god! I also loves the... More

This is also one of the prominent places visited by many travellers. Though it has show timings, I was not interested to spend time there, hence we just passed by this place. I think this place is good for families as kids would love to watch animals shows etc.

While the property is quite large, the enclosures for the animals at the Polarland are quite small. Many in our group agreed, that by Western standards, it would be considered animal cruelty. I realize it was entertaining for the locals, however, coming from Canada, we treat our animals more humanely They should listen closely to this review, as Westerners would... More

We went to the information centre for tourists, in search for directions to the Polarland, and found out that they were organising local tours intended for locals, offering slightly cheaper tickets and free transport from Central Street to and fro Polarland and the Ice and Snow World. We bought the whole package including Polarland and Ice and Snow World. One... More

This is a place you must visit when you are in Harbin. The animals are lively unlike normal hot summer zoo where everything are basically lying and sleeping. Among other normal animals like penguins that you can expect to see in a winter zoo, there were a group of white wolfs in glass cage. The blue eyes starring at you... More

Not very easy to get a taxis. Best to pre-book a taxis beforehand. It is located at Sun island an isolated, desserted island. There are several times of White Whale performance that form a heart shape with the divers so cute. e.g 11am. You can revisit those floor that you have missed out previously. There is plenty of foods and... More

Having been there once,and what attracting me most is the Ocean heart, it looks really awesome as you see in the pics, and the meaning of the sight is good too.Come to see it yourself.
