#1 of 15 in Events in China
At Harbin Snow Fair, admire majestic sculptures made of snow and ice, and experience a true winter fantasy. Each year, artists come to make wonderful art pieces, such as huge snow cathedrals, laughing Buddhas, and ornate ships. Try sliding or ice skating on the frozen pond, then warm yourself with a cup of hot coffee while surrounded by snow towers, castles, and other picturesque buildings. The site hosts art shows, dance performances, wedding ceremonies on ice, and a whole host of winter sports, while at night, hundreds of colorful lights illuminate the park. Dress up in warm clothes as, unsurprisingly, temperatures can get extremely low. Use our Harbin tour planner to add Harbin Snow Fair and other attractions to your Harbin vacation plans.

    Is located at the ice world. Ticket and transportation better with a Chinese leader organize because of the language difficulties, since few in Harbin speak English. Else liebefoll compiled snow statues and pictures. Dress WARMLY!

    Each snow sculpture is a topic I am most impressed by is a church in the case of not looking at the top think there are many smaller crosses around a church, but when the transformed point found around a church, I originally thought that the cross is a different little man, a very fine hard carved!

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.
