A famous summer resort with a deer park, a swan lake with a waterfall, and a zoo for Siberian tigers, Sun Island (Tai Yang Dao) also hosts an international snow sculpture art expo in winter. Enjoy the sea and wooded rockeries, or admire themed monumental figures and whole life-size castles sculpted from blocks of ice. Take a stroll around a pond and gaze at the two-story, French-style gloriette reflected upon the water's surface, or visit a themed Russian Village. The huge refrigerated ice lantern exhibit area stays open year-round, and in summer the island swarms with cyclists.

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.
