The Harbin Ice Lantern Festival

The Tiger Of The Northeast is best known for it’s world famous Harbin Ice Lantern Festival which takes place every Winter during The Spring Festival Holiday. There are two main sites for this festival. The biggest one is on the Songhua River. It’s very impressive and draws tourists from all over the world. If you want to go you’d better be a hearty person as temperatures commonly get to 60 below F. The second site is at Zhao Lin Park on You Yi Lu / Friendship St near the Songhua River and Central St. which is The Rodeo Drive of Harbin. I actually like this site better since the sculptures are every bit as good and it only takes about 3-4 hours to see it all. I suggest you come about 5:00 P.M. It will be dark enough to get the full effect and not nearly as cold as it will get later.
