We also had hand and feet warmers!! With that said, you will experience a once in a... More

this place is awesome, seeing of these ice masterpieces standing there. Although Harbin has the lowest temperature i personally survived, this place is so pretty that maybe will make you less concern about the freezing cold. Definitely try the slides! Make sure you are dress well and apply some warm pads on you feet will also be a good idea.

Remarkable how ice and snow can be fashioned into buildings and sculptures! A beautiful sight for photo taking. Lights change colors at night. Be sure to bundle up with many layers of clothing and gloves. You will want to spend at least an hour there. So big and so much to see and so amazing. The river must be really... More

The place is fully by ice block and they designed resemble as buildings or facilities. They are a house, palace, bridge, gate, tree, car with full light (LED). So the place is very bright and full color as they installed many color of LED in the ice.
