🐅 Majestic Northeast Tiger Forest Park ✨🤩✨
The Siberian Tiger Park is a comprehensive enterprise that integrates breeding, scientific research, protection, and viewing. It stands as a unique tourist attraction in Heilongjiang Province and holds the distinction of being the world's largest base for the artificial breeding of Amur tigers. Its primary mission is to protect and conduct scientific research on the Northeast Tiger while developing and utilizing its tourism potential to support conservation and research efforts through tourism income.
Siberian Tiger Park covers an impressive area of 1.44 million square meters. By the end of 2022, the park had nearly a thousand live Siberian tigers, earning it the title of the "Thousand Tiger Park." Annually, it hosts over 400,000 visitors.
The Siberian Tiger Park has established various tourist attractions, including a wild breeding experimental area, wild domestication zone, adult tiger enclosure, breeding tiger area, tiger breeding section, lion and tiger zone, African lion habitat, tiger king territory, cub area, walking zone, and tiger viewing platform.
Here, you can observe over 300 purebred Northeast tigers and also marvel at a variety of large and rare feline animals such as white tigers, white lions, lion-tiger hybrids, black jaguars, leopards, cheetahs, and African lions. This journey typically lasts about an hour. While the pedestrian area, Menghu Paradise, and Tiger Viewing Terrace are accessible by foot, other attractions require car rides for exploration. You can search for tiger tracks and immerse yourself in the majestic scenery, providing endless enjoyment.
To cater to the needs of tourists seeking to get closer to nature and explore the wild, the Siberian Tiger Park has thoughtfully designed and refurbished the "Adventure No.1" sightseeing car. It serves as a platform for tourists to peacefully interact with the Northeast Tiger. The car body is protected by steel mesh, allowing visitors to admire the tigers and feed them through this layer of protection, enabling "zero-distance" contact with the Northeast Tiger.
The establishment of the Northeast Tiger Forest Park not only contributes to the conservation of the Northeast Tiger but also provides a unique tourist attraction for nature enthusiasts.

Hungry? Visiting Harbin? Go to TATOC!
When I visited Harbin, I had a great meal at this restaurant.
It’s located on Zhongyang street and is always very busy. I didn’t have a RSVP and waited for over an hour.
For 107¥, I had a Bosche soup, pot stewed vegetables (cauliflower, broccoli, celery, potatoes, carrots and cabbage served in a tomato soup), a chicken salad and a Harbin beer.
Everything was delicious!

Ice and Snow World⛄️
Definitely a must see if you're in China over the Winter Holidays! You can't describe it to someone, it's beyond spectacular! It's so cold but so beautiful during the day or night. It's easy to get around with Didi or the Subway no need to pay for expensive tours or drivers. I would recommend that you go around 3pm while it's still light out, it will get dark around 4pm and then the lights starts coming on. It's beautiful to experience the sculptures with and without the lights. During the day it's not over crowded so you can enjoy walking around, taking pictures and do some of the ice activities if you want. There's no foreign food but there's small restaurants you can buy drinks, noodles and sausages from.

Zhongyangstreet Pedestrian Street Harbin
This Pedestrian street situated in Harbin is definitely worth the visit. It's full of street food vendors, restaurants and shops. The vibe is something between between Chinese and Russian. All the food that I've tried were really good. Don't miss the sausages and frozen fruits on a stick and don't let the cold keep you from trying the ice cream.
#foodie #harbin #zhongyangstreet
After a short flight from Shanghai to Harbin, I might say that the best thing I could do was to go to Harbin. For now it’s the coldest place I’ve been. Once getting into the city even though is freezing cold as our welcome was a short slow snow. as first thing we had a walk in the Daoli district from the biggest snowman to the bridge. The air is a bit dry so cover yourself as much as you can. visited the next day the old town walking through people and all the shops, got the ice cream which couldn’t melt and then got a drive to the Ice and Snow world, with many ice sculptures. No person gets bored in there. The next few days we visited cats and dogs cafe, got walks in the city and at the end got a northern sauna (leg massage, back massage and banking detox). #yearofrabbit #newyearadventure #snow #harbin #forevergrateful
HARBIN Winter Wonderland Ice Festival!
This is a MUST see in winter! Go and enjoy the beauty of intricate ice sculptures. It is really beautiful and worth the money as it is known as the largest ice and snow festival from later December to lat February. If you are living in China, definitely do not miss this. It happens yearly so plan a visit there. I swear, you will never regret it.
The ticket is around 300+ per person depending on which websites, agencies or at the entrance it self. You must book your tickets in advance for sure as there are usually a lot of people there. Don't be surprised at all.
Normally the temperature there is around -15 to -30 degrees celcius so pack warm clothes.
We stayed at a hostel in the city center which is called "Rose Holiday". Very affordable and comfortable. I have their wechat contact so if you're keen just msg me.
You can go to the Ice and Snow World either by didi, taxi or by car.. Pretty easy to get to as it is a famois tourist spot.

Harbin Magical Tundra- Worth Freezing For!
We stayed at the JW Marriott in Harbin. The staff was super-friendly and welcoming. They pointed us to a fantastic local restaurant (see photos). There were three main areas we visited- the snow-built sculptures at Sun Island, the ice sculptures at Harbin Ice and Snow Festival, and Zhongyang Pedestrian Street- which has “The Feel of Russia in China.” We enjoyed them all- lots of fun and definitely worth braving the cold. Of course dress warmly and take breaks as needed. The hotel had fantastic massages for very reasonable prices, and if you ask, you can likely get a coupon for ¥100 discount.#harbin #newyearadventure #jwmarriott
Worth braving the cold at -30°C!
Dazzling visitors for over 60 years now, the Harbin Ice and Snow Festival has glistening renditions of architectural wonders, folklore and traditional crafts.
Try to cover Sun Island during noon as that you could reach here in the afternoon so that you can see the day and illuminatd night version of the sculptures.
The sculptures are record-breaking in size and the night illuminations add a surreal kaleidoscope of colour to the bitter cold temperaturs -30/-40°C!
It is easily accessible by subway, so no need to book an expensive private taxi or Didi as the waiting time is too long.

A white Christmas part 2
If you've never been to Harbin, China. It's definitely worth the visit. If you'd mentioned -20°c temperatures to me before I left the UK, I'd have laughed in disbelief and said "not a chance". Actually, it's not as cold as it sounds. Granted, you need your thermals and about 3-4+ layers of clothing, you cannot remove your gloves for more than a few seconds without your hands stinging and you're eyelashes begin to get frosty. All that aside, it's a great experience! The sculptures are incredibly detailed. There are also lots of activities for children and adults, though some require you to book a spot on their app.
From Beijing, it took about 4.5 hours to get there by train, then I stayed at a hotel nearby the station. Harbin is small enough to travel around by subway or taxi easily. Most attractions are within a 30 minute drive from the station. For the ice festival, foreign tourists should buy tickets at the scene. the ticket includes a trip on the Ferris wheel. FYI, the Ferris wheel gets very busy after sunset, especially in the Chinese New year holiday expect to queue. #newyearadventure #whitechristmas #harbin
Tatoc first Russian restaurant in Harbin
Address - 127 Zhongyang Dajie, Harbin China.
Ambiance/Facilities - Cozy place
Highlights - They have many sets and you can choose different kinds of combinations. Usually is sets for 2 or 4 persons and it’s a lot of foods. We choose a special set with black caviar and foie gras. You need to go as soon as they open because it gets really crowded and the waiting queue is long.
Avg. Price per Person - 322RMB per person (without drinks)
Rating - 10/10 #foodie #russianfood #harbin
Colder than my soul
I went to Harbin for a weekend, I must say it’s not like any other city that I’ve seen this for in China. Many building look old and desolated.
However I had tons of fun . The ice sculptures are amazing and so big .
I took the cable car to and from sun 🌞 island . (80 rmb both ways )
I ate tanghulu (candied Chinese fruit )🍓
walked the beautiful Zhongyang street (must buy sausage and chimney bread 🥖)
went to St Sophia’s cathedral beautiful 🤩 #yearofrabbit #newyearadventure #harbin #iceland
Harbin: Volga Manor
Don’t forget to visit this amazing place! it’s a little far (approximately 1 hour drive from downtown) but it’s worth it. Dress warm!

Harbin- my favorite city in 🇨🇳
Harbin is famous for its name as the “Ice City” in northeast China and one of the best winter destinations for tourists.
If you ask me: Does it worth visiting?
My answer is YES!
It’s definitely worth taking a walk here.
Old baroque style architecture, old orthodox cathedral, street with tons of restaurants ( Russian food, Dongbei food, bbq, noodles, dumplings…) etc etc.
You will not regret and will enjoy every moment!
#newyearadventure #harbin #harbintour #winter
Harbin Ice festival.
Getting There - We caught a train from Jilin, after going skiing there, to Harbin. Then it is easy to get a taxi to the snow and ice festival or there is a stop on the metro there.
Attractions - Snow and ice festival, magical ice building and objects. would recommend going around 2:30/3pm to see before dark then waiting till they turn the lights on.
Food & Restaurants - limited hot food options at the park so eat before or after in central Harbin which has some really good food.#2023travelwish #harbin
Harbin’s Siberian Tiger Park 🐅
During my Summer vacation, I decided to visit Harbin and it was a blast!
Amongst other things, the Tiger Park is quite popular in Harbin. You get to have a safari style experience and even feed the tigers. There’s also a circus and I suggest you buy a ticket; it was pretty cool!
Cost: 210¥ for the entrance ticket, the show and the safari bus tour. If I understood correctly, you can feed the tigers for an extra 210¥. (Pay the bus driver)
In 2023, I’d love to go back to Harbin to see the ice festival! 🇨🇳

Eastern European Food in Harbin!Why not?
We found this restaurant through Tripcom during our trip to Harbin. This restaurant can be seen on the busy walking street in Harbin. This is located on XiDazhi Street 12, Harbin, China. It opens from 11am to 12am. You can also call for a reservation. We actually had a good experience when we went there. The ambience of the restaurant is quite elegant. There was live music "trumpet". A woman was playing on a small stage. The music wasn't that loud which was good. It was also nice to find a menu with a wide selection of dishes, deserts and drinks. The food is fine, the service isn't bad. I love the atmosphere the most.
