What is the best thing we can do in the winter? With piles of snow like everywhere, maybe this one festival will attract your attention, even with the low temperature that might make your hands numb. The Harbin Ice Festival, one event that is always awaited by many people, whether from China or any other country in the world.
Harbin Ice Festival provides the visitors each year a whole new world of ice and snow. The 29th Harbin International Ice and Snow Festival was started on January 5, 2013 and last for over one month. The best collections of ice artworks were exhibited in the following five main places: Ice and Snow World, Ice Lantern Garden Party, Sun Island Scenic Area, Yabuli International Ski Resort, Zhaolin Park.
