Explore an ice kingdom in Harbin, China
What happens when you arm thousands of artists with 6 million cubic feet of ice, unleash them into a 750,000-square-meter space and task them with creating a magical winter wonderland? You get the Harbin Ice Festival, a monumental village of snow, ice, and neon lights that will make your backyard snowman look absolutely pathetic. China’s largest winter festival is expected to lure more than 1 million international visitors to the Manchurian city of Harbin between its opening on December 24 and closing February 25. Beyond city limits, many festivalgoers will hit the slopes at nearby Yabuli Ski Resort or strip down for some polar bear swimming in the frozen Songhua River, home to various ice sports and winter activities, over the course of the celebration.
