Harbin Ice and Snow Festival is held in one of the coldest cities in China. That’s because it’s heralded as the Ice City of China.
Harbin Ice and Snow Festival 2018
This is an annual winter festival which takes place in Harbin, China, and it is the largest ice and snow festival worldwide. In 2017 the festival attracted more than 18 million visitors from all around the world.
Harbin is located in Northeast China and receives cold winter wind from Siberia. With an average temperature during winter of -16.8 °C (1.8 °F).
This phenomenal winter wonderland will delight kids just as much as adults with its glorious and huge ice and snow sculptures.
The festival officially starts on January 5 each year and lasts one month. However, exhibits often open earlier and stay longer – depending on the weather.
There are two main exhibition areas during the international ice and snow festival:
- Sun Island,
- Ice and Snow World.
Tourists will be amazed by the magnificent ice and snow buildings, which often includes an ice maze, ice bar, and even an ice hotel as well. There is also the chance to participate in festival activities such as ice rock climbing, skiing, sliding, snow fights and many more.
