What will you do when the winter is coming? If you have no idea, come to Harbin Ice and Snow World to enjoy the most recreational winter activities and experience the most forms of entertainment.

Harbin Ice and Snow World, one of the major venues for the International Ice and Snow Festival, officially opens on January 5, 2011. The park features many large ice and snow sculptures based on landmarks from countries around the world. Harbin Ice and Snow World is so far the largest ice and snow art, ice sculpture exhibition in the world. It always provides visitors with a totally unique and unforgettable experience and memory every year.

What makes me excited is that, here, I can find the most beautiful art attractions, appreacite amazing night views, enjoy the most recreational winter activities and experience the most forms of entertainment.

Ice carving is the typical thing you can do in the Ice and Snow World. Visitors will also be amazed by the magnificent ice sculptures and buildings, including ice cartoons, ice bar, and even an ice hotel. These ice items are regarded as some of the world's finest examples of ice art. Each of these ice carvings is designed in some way related to the festival's theme, enabling travelers to sample a variety of cultural flavors.

Another thing you just remembers, to visit the site at night! The colorful lights set underground illuminate the various kinds of ice sculptures like the great Buddha, lovely puppies, tigers, cartoons, the Snow White, the Seven Dwarfs... The contrasts of the bright and dazzling lights against the dark night sky make the works look all the more spectacular.

Regarded as an Ice Disneyland, Harbin Ice and Snow World is a centre for various forms of recreation and entertainment. I am a fan of snow sports, so there is a chance for me to participate in activities such as ice rock-climbing, skating, skiing, sliding, snow fights, ice golf, and ice archery. In addition to all this, special performances based on the festival theme are put on throughout the event which will no doubt greatly entertain those in search of something a little less physically-demanding.

The best time to travel to Harbin is in winter.  The Harbin Ice and Snow Festival is held either in late December or in early January, and for those who dream of an exciting winter experience. Harbin Ice and Snow World is the ideal place to make those dreams come true.

One more thing I just want to tell you. As Harbin's location near the Russian border, it provides icy temperatures for most of the year. Remember to wrap up warm!
