City Guide -- Harbin

Travel Guide of Harbin in Heilongjiang Province


Harbin, the capital of Heilongjiang Province, is located in the middle reaches of the Songhua River in the south of the province. The city first came into being with the settlement, in 1097, of the Nazhen nationality. The place then was a natural, and cold, fishing area, situated right on the Songhua River. By the Yuan Dynasty (1271-1368AD) the area was renamed Haerbin, literally meaning "where the fishing nets are dried".

The Ice and Snow Festival has successfully turned the city's worst feature -- villainous winter cold -- into its greatest asset. The festival now covers most of the city and features some truly outstanding ice and snow sculptures. Past highlights have included translucent reproductions of the Great Wall and Beijing's Gate of Heavenly Peace, life-size pagodas, structurally sound multilevel houses, and a massive statue of Elvis -- all equipped with internal lights.
