    Hi Angie, Harbin looks too cold for me. How is life treating you. Intend to visit China 2011, researching. Just home from 3 weeks in northern Thailand with the orchid society.

    Hi Angela - I've taken the plunge and booked a flight to Shanghai - my first trip to China! :-) Just sorting out the visa application forms now. I've seen photos of the ice carvings at Harbin in the past - they look amazing!

    What? You have to have a rabbit skin coat?? Oh no. I don't have one.

    Haven't been to Harbin yet, no. But it's on the top of my wish list a long time already. :-)

    Did you get any good photos of the ice buildings? It's definitely a little-known but must-see sight, isn't it.
