Visiting the Ice and Snow world was the main reason for my visit in Harbin and it didn't disappoint. Coming from Canada, I'm used to seeing snow and ice sculptures, but nothing compares to Harbin. the structures are over three stories high and show very intricate designs. make sure you dress properly so you can enjoy the site, as there...

I thought I'd miss out on the famous Harbin ice palaces b/c it was August. Never fear, this huge enclosed facility has beautiful ice sculptures all year.

Our trip to Harbin was amazing.The snow and ice structures were mind-blowing and visually magnificent and was the highlight of our China trip. We would also recommend a visit to the Siberian Tiger Park

The effort that goes into the sculptures is incredible. We went at night, when it was all lit up, and I think that was a good idea. But it was so cold, so make sure you know exactly where and when your transport will pick you up from so you don't get stuck waiting outside. 2 hours are more than... More

The most iconic place to be in Harbin but is unfortunately open for few months a year from December to February where you can admire the beautiful sculptures and building replicas made entirely from carved ice. There were places for children to play and watch fireworks for the family. It can be very cold so be prepared to dress well... More

So So cold, make sure you are dressed for the weather with proper outdoor cold weather clothing. The ice sculptures were so well crafted and lit up well. So glad I have been.
