Wondering where you should be traveling to during next year Chinese New Year season which falls on 23 -24 January 2012? How about traveling to Harbin, which hosts its annual Harbin International Ice and Snow festival 2012!
Globally, Harbin International Ice and Snow Festival is one of the world’s four largest international ice festivals.
Next year, the 28th Harbin Ice and Snow Festival starts on 5 January 2012 and ends at end February 2012. Exhibits often open earlier and stay longer, weather permitting.
At the Ice and Snow festival, you have a chance to see beautiful ice sculpture decoration. Modern technology such as lasers or traditional technology such as lanterns are used to decorate the iceland.
You can also enjoy winter activities including Yabuli alpine skiing, winter-swimming in the Songhua River, and the ice-lantern exhibition in Zhaolin Garden.
Too bad… I can’t escape Chinese New Year. So I have to stay in Singapore. In fact, one of my close friend is already planning her vacation to Harbin next year. So if you have a choice to travel during Chinese New Year, can consider Harbin. You will need to cater about 4 days there.
