Harbin

3.4

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.
