6-Day Harbin Ice Festival and Yabuli Club Med Tour

Written by LingUpdated Apr. 7, 2024

Harbin and Yabuli Family Relaxation

Our Harbin trip customers have found that they've never been so cold, but also have never been so amazed. The around -25°C (-13°F) temperatures can be very challenging, but the experiences at Harbin Ice and Snow Festival are so worth it!

There are lots of reasons why families, especially those with young children should go to Harbin: see gorgeous snow and ice sculptures, enjoy winter fun activities in the wonderland of ice and snow, eat an ice cream to warm up your body (can you imagine that?), take a high-speed train to Yabuli in just an hour and a half, ski at one of China's top ski resorts, and enjoy a relaxing winter holiday at Club Med Yabuli.

The opening ceremony of Harbin Ice Festival is scheduled to be on January 5th, 2024, but the ice and snow sculptures in the Harbin Ice and Snow World are open to public viewing from December 17th 2023 and lasts till early March 2024.
