Harbin is the capital of Heilongjiang province and is the largest city in the northeastern region of China. It is located along the Songhua River. Due to the juxtaposition of Chinese and European architectural styles in the city, Harbin has been nicknamed “Oriental Moscow” and “Oriental Paris.” Harbin is also famous for its culinary tradition that consists of both European and Northern Chinese dishes typified by the use of heavy sauces and deep frying. Since Russia has been a strong influence in Harbin’s history, the local cuisine also contains Russian-style dishes, many of which can be found in several authentic Russian-style restaurants on Zhongyang Street.

Harbin is most known for the annual Harbin International Ice and Snow Sculpture Festival which begins in January. During the festival, ice sculptures can be found throughout the city and at two main exhibition areas – Sun Island and at “Ice and Snow World” – where the ice sculptures are illuminated from both inside and outside at nighttime. Other winter activities during the festival include Yabuli Alpine Skiing, snowmobiling, winter-swimming in the Songhua River, snow carving, and the traditional ice-lantern exhibition in Zhaolin Garden. If you are planning a trip to Harbin during the Snow and Ice Festival, check out these Airbnb vacation rentals and book now!
