Every winter in Northeast China, the coldest places are often the hottest tourist spots. This is especially true at the moment, with the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics just around the corner and the Chinese people’s passion for the cold greater than ever.

Ice and Snow World, a famous seasonal attraction in Harbin, capital of Heilongjiang province, was bustling with tourists during the recent New Year holiday, which lasted from Saturday to Monday.

Covering an area of 820,000 square meters, the park used some 230,000 cubic meters of ice and snow to create 65 different landscapes this year, with the popular “super ice slide” attraction extended to 423 meters.

Comprehensive COVID-19 prevention measures are in place. Visitors can be seen lining up in an orderly manner at the gate, scanning their health codes and having their temperatures taken before entering the park.

Park tour guide Liu Lu spends about six hours in the freezing weather every day, showing visitors the sights and telling them how the ice was collected and how the park was built.

Located in the Changbai mountains, the Snow village in Heilongjiang’s Hailin city kicked off its annual tourist season on Dec 29, when local temperatures dropped to around minus 20 degrees Celsius, transforming the village into a snow-capped wonderland.
