Nothing exciting

We just made a photo stop as part of a tour of the city sights. Nice enough, but you don't need much time here.

There was a monument and a few people taking a few pics and selfies and that’s it. There’s not much else to see or do. After you take a few steps, you’ll want to continue walking about 20 meters and take the steps out to the Songhua River as it’s frozen during the winter time. Be careful and wear slip... More

Not much thought or creativeness was put into this monument I thought. In a city that is riddled with creative signs, landmarks and monuments, this was rather tame. I wouldn't go out my way to see this unless you're going for a stroll around the area which I did.

Pretty crowded when everybody want to take a selfie of the monument..-) Nothing much to do except photo session. Just a memorial tower beside the frozen Songhua river.

Unfortunately I had only a minute or two to check out the scene here. It was a lot of fun to watch the hordes of people down on the frozen river engaging in all sorts of outdoor activities. I suspect this would allow you to bike on the ice (etc.) without paying the admission to Sun Island in addition to... More

it's there, in the middle of the main roads so if you're visiting the river or sun island you'll see it several times and that's sufficient.

It's a landmark that commemorates the victory of the fight against the 1957 flood. It's located in the Stalin Park and is on the opposite side of the Zhongyang Pedestrian Center Street (hence why it's achieving 'excellent reviews'). It's generally fairly crowed here and a prome hotspot for hawkers. If you are coming from the Zhongyang Pedestrian Street remember to... More

Nothing impressive really. I visited in January, so had loads of fun on the frozen river. Other than that there's nothing much to do. Chaotic traffic real close to the monument and plenty sellers trying to force you their goods..

We went passed the memorial "obelisk" to get to the river, as it was in December it had frozen over. The memorial "obelisk" is just to commemorate the building of the flood defences after the area got flooded around the 1950s. Much better things to see around the centre of Harbin such as the pedestrian street which is the longest... More

I would advise you to visit this in the afternoon/evening when they have put the lights on. The monument itself is not so impressive. It commemorates the struggle to control the floods from the Songhau river. When illuminated from afternoon it is quit beautiful. Take a walk along the riverbank at the same time and enjoy the illumination of the... More
