Big difference depending on time and date to visit

The square is located in the far end of the Central avenue so very easily accessible. That's also the reason why I have been there several times during my stay in Harbin when I... read more

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

A visit to this city should include this riverfront. It is very beautiful at night. If you need a toilet there is a big one at the underground by MacDonald's.

It's not a tower guys, it's an obelisk! The Flood Control Monument commemorates the reengineering of the Songhua River to prevent the periodic flooding that used to plague Harbin. The Monument stands at the top of Zhongyang Dajie - Harbin's pedestrian street - and really comes to life in the winter when an ice skating/sledding area is set up on... More

The square is located in the far end of the Central avenue so very easily accessible. That's also the reason why I have been there several times during my stay in Harbin when I was just hanging around. Daytime it is not so crowded but if you go there during the weekend and especially in the evening when there are... More
