"Winter Sports" Harbin Things to Do Tip by akikonomu

Harbin Things to Do: 117 reviews and 201 photos


If you have the opportunity, witness winter swimming by the local elderly. It is a sport that requires precaution, specialised training and adequate warmup lest you freeze to death. The locals entertain the crowds that cheer them on by waving and posing for photographs.

In the park where winter swimming is designated to take place, you can also ride the snow mobile or more cruelly the dog sleds (not really for it). Or play on the ice slides. Not really for intensive sports, more for good family fun.
