Welcome to Harbin


The city’s sights are as varied as the architectural styles on the old street. Temples, churches and synagogues coexist, while deep in the southern suburbs a former Japanese germ-warfare base is a sobering reminder of less harmonious times.

Harbin’s Russian and Jewish heritage is best explored during summer wanderings under blue skies, but winter is when Harbin really heats up, as host of the world-class Harbin Ice & Snow Festival, centred around a neon-clad, subzero theme park created entirely from ice.
