Stunning!

Loved the Baluga whales dancing to the Titanic theme song. The tanks were of course far too small, but that is expected from acquariums!

We did not intend to go here but dropped in because we had some spare time. Some fantastic animals on show but enclosures were too small. The belugas were stunning and their performance was amazing.

Not worth the money, two polar bears which paced about out of boredom, a few penguins , sea lions and Beluga whales. Found the whole place looking tired, and the animal looking sad. Mostly geared up for children, couldn't get in to see the sea lion show and just missed the Buluga whales performing, didn't fancy waiting around for 2... More

The polarland park is located on Sun Island near the Snow and Ice exhibition areas. But it is small compared to other larger attractions of the same kind elsewhere. The main reason for coming here is to see the Beluga show. This 10-minute show is the highlight of the experience of visiting as the cute faces of the intelligent pair... More

A few good animal exhibits - polar wolf, polar bears, penguins, seals (though was a bit sad to see these magnificent animals in such cooped up homes. Polarland appears to be striving for a Disney feel with different themes as you walk through sections - to the extent of playing Disney theme music (Finding Nemo etc). There are two shows... More

The Beluga show is quite awe inspiring, but a little sad to see such large animals kept in a small space. Other parts of the aquarium exhibit beautiful sea life in good condition and clean facilities.

We had an absolutely fantastic day at Harbin Polarland. We got in at around 10am and left at about 12:30. I probably could have lingered even longer. I was really charmed by the presentation of the place, each of the rooms is decorated really nicely, with lots of kitsch and trinkets. You might see on the website that they have... More

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
