Our trip to China was centred around the Ice Festival - and there was no let down at all. There are three sights. 1) Ice Festival (north side of Songhua River) 2) Snow Sculpture (North of Songhua River) 3) Ice Lantern (Zhaolin Park). All charge separate entry fees. The Ice Festival is 330RMB per ticket. We did the Snow Sculpture... More

This is a must see, very beautiful and wondrous...but you defiantly need to where long down jackets and ski wear is a must. Ques can get long for certain attractions and toilets, not much in a way of food stalls. I came by taxi who waited for me, where by he actually went and got tickets for me, 330CNY vie... More

It's about 300 yuan per adult and 200 per kid. We went late morning and stayed until after sunset, which is at 4:00. There are several activities for 16+, but there's enough for any age to be entertained for the day if you can manage the cold. I recommend heat packs for your snow shoes and regular snack/drink breaks in... More

It is well worth the visit. I originally felt this would be a one and done type of experience -- see it once, mark it off the list, never return again. However, I enjoyed it enough that I will likely do it again in 3-4 years. Amazing ice and snow sculptures with lots of ice-related recreational activities (ice bicycling, ice... More

As a foreign student in China, I was able to get a great discount on the entry fee, so the festival only cost me 200元. It's truly a magical and completely unique experience. I would highly recommend going to the Ice and Snow World to everyone, with a few caveats. 1. Because this is China, keep in mind that safety... More

The park was pretty well built up and amazing. Definitely impressing and worth seeing. They have Ice castles, slides, sculptures, rides, etc... There is plenty to do for anyone here. If you are active, you can race down the ice slides or ice skate on some rinks. They have castles and buildings built and completely lit up in the ice.... More

It seems a little expensive (¥330) but that includes all the activities you can do such as slides/ice bikes/ice skating...there are lots of things to do! The ice buildings are also really impressive. I would recommend going at night as it's all lit up however it gets busier then so if you want to try lots of different things, head... More

I was there on Jan 13-14th, first of all, place is amazing, is totally worth as bucket list item!, but things you need to know and get prepared since temp, average was on the -15 to -25C. I was told not to bring small children but with the correct preparation and gear I can confirm that a 2yrs old kid... More

Go at sunset on a clear day for maximum effect. Great ice slides and other entertainment especially for the kids big or small. Don't expect fine dining but a warm pizza and coffee are a most welcome break from the cold. And it is cold! Worth the trip.
