About Harbin: Harbin is a scenic city that has gradually reached perfection over the years. In few other cities do people get as obsessed with being in a world of ice and snow. Every winter Harbin Ice and Snow World on the frozen Songhua River is full of happy banter. Here, it is as if people can forget the cold while still enjoying the frozen landscape. Here there are lively ice lantern shows and vivid and lifelike ice sculptures, as well as also mountain skiing and glacier skating that spread excitement all around. As soon as the sun goes down, walk down the central avenue surging with crowds and admire the elegant European architecture adorned with lamps and the magnificent Orthodox Church or try a Martell Popsicle to enjoy the enchanting cultural mix of East and West.
