Harbin Weather in February

Temperatures rise a bit from the coldest month of January, but in February is still freezing cold and dry with snowfalls.

Harbin International Snow Festival is held from December to February at parks like Sun Island and Ice and Snow World. Check out top things to do in Harbin or our Harbin tour packages.

The average high and low temperature in February is respectively at -8 °C (17 °F)  and -21 °C (-7 °F). Most of the buildings have central heating, so it is very warm if you stay indoors. If you stay outdoors or at snow fields, it is suggested that you wrap yourself up with thick warm winter clothes. Read more about keeping warm in Harbin.

Chinese New Year (Spring Festival) usually falls in February. It is the most important traditional festival for Chinese people, and is the best time to experience authentic Chinese traditional culture. However, it is the busiest tourist season of the country where people use the holiday to travel around. Transportation and hotels are fully booked and tour prices rise much higher than usual. It is suggested that you place bookings well in advance. See Chinese New Year Travel Guide.
