Coming from a tropical country, seeing these huge ice cubes carving; it blew our mind away! Great experience!

Always wanted to see Harbin in the winter but sub-20 degree temperatures in Dec.kept me at bay. So decided on a side trip from Shanghai. Harbin is a pleasant city - clear skies, broad avenues, less than half the population in Shanghai. Relic Russian architectural...More

Harbin is cold in the winter, Siberian, really. So, what better place for a snow and ice sculpture festival. If you have no knowledge of Chinese and no one to help you, good luck in finding the right locations of all the different places. This...More

As other reviewers are pointing out, it's very cold, so dress appropriately. In mid-January it was around minus-25, plus wind-chill making it seem colder. Cool sculptures, and great photo ops at night. I recommend arriving more than an hour or two before sunset to avoid...More

Make sure your gadgets ( cameras) can handle extreme cold. All Apple products drain immediately when taken out in the cold to take pictures. Wear adequate clothing from head to toe. In spite of the cold, there were a lot of people and personal belongings...More

It’s not fully open before January but you will be able to see most on your planned December 31 visit. I went before opening. It wasn’t all complete but you get the feel of it and you get to experience it.
