Harbin’s Ice Festival
Chinese are very creative people. They make use of even the most frosty winters to attract the tourists from world over. Every year, on January 5, the north-eastern Chinese city of Harbin hosts the International Ice Snow Festival. They erect sculptures of most famous landmark buildings and monuments of the world and decorate them with lights. An Empire State Building here, a Pyramid there and an Eiffel Tower elsewhere, beckon the tourist in ample numbers. The sight is simply bewitching. It is said most of the city’s people are Russian immigrants.
