Harbin (China)

Harbin Travel Guide and Trip Resources


Ice cold

Harbin is the capital of Heilongjiang province and speaks to the imagination of many Chinese as a Chinese city with Russian characteristics. The influence of China's neighbour is present in the city, in particular through the Russian architecture which is nowadays even applied to new buildings. Harbin is famous for its harsh winters (during which it stages the "Harbin International Snow and Ice Festival", making headlines every year), while in the summer it is a pleasant getaway from some of the more steamy places in the north of China. (Do keep in mind that the Chinese definition of a getaway - in terms of distance - may vary from that where you are from!) [Review by travelindicator]
