It's not a tower guys, it's an obelisk! The Flood Control Monument commemorates the reengineering of the Songhua River to prevent the periodic flooding that used to plague Harbin. The Monument stands at the top of Zhongyang Dajie - Harbin's pedestrian street - and really comes to life in the winter when an ice skating/sledding area is set up on... More

The square is located in the far end of the Central avenue so very easily accessible. That's also the reason why I have been there several times during my stay in Harbin when I was just hanging around. Daytime it is not so crowded but if you go there during the weekend and especially in the evening when there are... More

Here is a tower which was previously used to indicate any warning of any flood, this was also used as watch tower. I haven't visited the place but have seen it while passing in the car.

This is the entrance (one of the entrances?) to the park along the river. It is a big, open plaza, with garden sculptures on the sides. Stroll on along the river a little bit. In the summer, it was very lively, with colorful ferries on the river and lots of tourists.

I went in May and happen to go on a sunny blue sky day. This tower is located at the end of Zhongyang Road on the Songhua River. So it's worth visiting if you are walking on the very popular Zhongyang pedestrian street otherwise, your time is better spent on more popular views in Harbin. This view is free.

This is located at the end of the Pedestrian street and allows you to look over the river. The plaza area is surrounded by shops and Hotels. A good rest spot when you have to walk back down the Pedestrian street.

The tower is just a monument, but the real fun is on the frozen river just next to the monument. There are so many things to do: ice skating, watching kids play top-spinning on the ice, sled down the hill (not expensive)

We reached the monument after a 30 minute winter walk along Central (pedestrian) Street. What we found more spectacular than the monument was the view of hundreds, or maybe thousands of people enjoying activities on the frozen river.

I visited this place in Januray and we were just frozen! Put on your warm clothes if you wanna visit the place! Also you can see crowded people here.
