Ice City

The influence of neighboring Russia remains visible throughout much of Harbin, with the country's northernmost metropolis possessing an intoxicating eclecticism in its architecture, food, and art. Founded as a camp for Russian railway engineers, the city now features many arresting sites across its historic center, including churches, synagogues, and long-established hotels, with domed towers looming large over public plazas. Tourism in Harbin thrives in the winter months, when the city hosts a large ice sculpture festival along the banks of the river. Harbin is in Heilongjiang. Make your own Harbin vacation itinerary, with a little help from those that know the place like the back of their hands, by using our China trip planner .

Where to stay in Harbin

South of the Songhua River, you'll find the bulk of accommodations in Harbin. In a cluster close to Zhaolin Park, a number of modern hotels, a few guesthouses, and other budget-friendly options along the less traveled streets cater to a range of travelers. Look for hotels occupying old Russian-built architectural landmarks, with some particularly notable ones located across the Nangang District.
