The Harbin Ice and Snow Sculpture festival of northern China is a life size winter wonderland that completely consist of snow and ice. From 1985, this festival has grown to be one of the biggest winter festivals in the world! The main attraction of the festival is the Harbin Ice and Snow World which is covered with castles and buildings across an area of 750,000 square meters. Many come around the world to compete in this sculpture contest which is why this event is so unique and all of the ice is sourced from a nearby river, Songhua River. Usually the sculptors must have their work done by the end of December of most years and the festival commences shortly after but since it is so cold in this region their pieces of art work could stand up until late February.
With over 10 million visitors annually, incredible ice sculptures that reach 46 meters high and the vibrant illumination that is shown throughout, these are valid reasons why you should visit the Harbin International Ice and Snow Festival soon. Even if you missed it this year, it is practically guaranteed that the following year will be bigger and better than the year before!
