This is one of the best and most popular place to visit during the Harbin festival in February each year. I would recommend to explore high rise sculptures and iced structures of people, animals, ships, any many many others. It's worth visiting this place.

Probably had insufficient time to do the the place justice. Enjoyed the Russian village and the boat trip over. Nice park, good place to visit.

I visited the park in late December (xmas), a couple of days before the official opening, so some of the structures were still under construction. however most of the sculptures and some of the slides were already open. overall it's a beautiful site and would be perfect for any traveler in Harbin. dress warmly as there are no indoor/heated area...

I visited sun island on a Saturday in May. It is pretty crowded. I went to the Russian park which is nothing special. The entrance ticket is like a passport. You can get visa stamps by visiting all the shops in the park. The only foreign looking individuals are the one at the ticket booth and a lady at the... More

There is a lot to see here, and the sculptures are so detailed, its easy to stay still for too long and get a bit cold. But you can take your time, as there are lots of little sheds set up selling hot drinks. We would walk around for 30 to 60 minutes, then head inside to warm up. There... More

The architecture remains Russian and Russian songs are played everywhere. This street is famous for locals, with shops and Western restaurants. However nothing else special and interesting, it disappointed me a bit because i expected something more than historical value/

Got to the park by cable car - nice view of snowy Songhua river. The snow sculptures were so beautiful. I spent almost 7 hours in this park. Must visit ...

I'd seen the photos but nothing prepared me for how amazing (& big) the snow buildings and sculptures were - fabulous! Cold? Below freezing - you need many layers...

Since I was on the tour to Harbin to see the Ice Festival, I didn't realize there was a separate area of similar size dedicated to snow sculptures. This is a pretty big deal here. To get the compacted snow they need to create these exhibits, they have to use artificial snow compacted into container size cubes as building blocks... More
