    A little late for you I guess, but wanted to put this in the Harbin section. My first trip to China we flew over Harbin and I had a view from above of the "bing deng", the ice lanterns. Wow, it was something else.

    We just had a layover so I wasn't able to get out and experience them, but that seems like it must be the thing to catch in Harbin. I think that was around the spring festival in early February. The city looked like an icy disneyland with colorful lights giving everything an amazing cartoonish glow. about 10 years ago

    A bit late for you but a visit to Harbin in January should be on everyone's bucket list especially if you love china it is very cold minus 20. But the ice and snow festival is absolutely spectacular.my seven year old sons only wish during our stay was that the hold the festivals in the summer instead didn't quite get the obvious flaw in his arguement over 9 years ago

    Do sightseeing between 1100- 1500
    Wrap camera as yourselves - otherwise it will freeze.
    Visit St Sophia Church and Central Street ( Harbin was part of Russia )
    Go to the Siberian Tiger Reserve ( avoid lunch hour as they feed them with live chickens)
    Check swimmers at the frozen Songhua River almost 8 years ago
