"Ha'er'bin" Harbin by Katie&Jordi
Harbin Travel Guide: 354 reviews and 908 photos
Haerbin is a city famed for its annual Winter Lantern Festival or Ice Festival. It's far up North in China, bordering Russia. It doesn't only share a border, but the cold winter as well.
We had a glimpse at a different side of Haerbin, a warmer side: during summer, Harbin has a lot to offer, with beautiful remains of its Russian past in forms of cobblestone streets and traditional buildings. The Chinese have added a nice riverside promenade. So, visiting this city at the right time of the year (summer) allows you to enjoy it all.
Haerbin is supposed to get very crowded during the Winter Festival, and we have heard that, in case you want to see it, it is better to do it right before it begins officially.
- Pros:Beautiful buildings and old charming streets.
- Cons:Really big city.
- In a nutshell:A different Chinese city.
