I came to Harbin and experienced the cold Siberian weather to attend one famous event in this country, the Harbin Ice Festival. The site, outside the city, really became spectacular as soon as the sun is down and lights start to shine.

View of the Entrance door from the Park

Chinese tourists understood this and came by bus to this place around 6-7pm. The organization also noticed this and doubled the price of the entrance ticket at 5.30pm (200 Yuans). The price is the highest that I pay currently in China to visit any tourist places; it can be compared to any other tourist sites in Europe.

Anyway, this site is worth the detour. As soon as you arrived, the entrance door is approximately 30m high and glitter. That is a good start… :) (more…)
