Harbin,

Once a remote fishing village, lies in the north eastern corner of China and grew up around the terminus of the China Eastern Railway that brought international trade and foreign settlers. Nowadays, it is a dynamic and prosperous centre with a unique blend of European and Oriental architecture along Central Street which you will see on your tour, and also St Sophia Cathedral, a Russian Orthodox cathedral that is now a museum. This afternoon, visit the Snow and Ice festival where replicas of some of the most famous buildings in the world have been faithfully recreated in ice, and as darkness falls, multi-coloured lights inside them blaze forth. Harbin is the twin town of Anchorage in Alaska and Edmonton in Canada, and every year it partners with another country to give a new theme to the festival.  BL

Harbin

Today visit a unique zoo, one where the visitors are in cages rather than the animals! The reason for this is that the animals in question are Siberian Tigers, around 500 of them roaming the 350 acre park, and you may also see Bengali tigers, white tigers, lions, lynx and leopards here too. Feeding time is not for the faint-hearted as it is usual for live prey to be fed to the animals. This evening visit the Ice Lantern Festival at Zhaolin Park with artistic and novel ice sculptures of dragons, flowers, waterfalls – everything is magical after dark!  BL
