We came at the very end. Most were melted with new snow sitting on top. It was still interesting to see how massive it was. Grab a map and walk, no need for sightseeing bus unless you are tired. Bring your food and drink. Most food places were closed. We sat at the coffee place and they didn't care that... More

This place is separate from the night ice festival that is lit up. We went here during the day and the snow sculptures were equally amazing. The cold is brutal so wear multiple layers and be mentally prepared. Buy a trolley ticket upon entering the park, something like 20 yuan, as you don't want to walk the long ways between... More

Visited Sun Island for 90 minutes before the ice festival, definitely worth seeing. Wasn't sure beforehand what it was all about, but discovered the Ice festival is basically Ice sculptures whereas Sun Island is Snow sculptures and some of them are huge. So you should see both plus Zhaolin Park (more ice sculptures but smaller scale than Ice festival). Initially... More

We went during the day, which was great as you could walk around easily and see the sculptures well. Good to do this if you only have one full day, as you will probably want to go and see the Ice & Snow World in the evening when it is all lit up.

We went to see the snow sculptures and were not disappointed. From 3 metre cubes to 18 metre monoliths with complete 70 metre building facia and a princesses castle they were great. Well spread out and a pleasant 3 hour walk to catch them all. For the kids there is a very interesting ice slide of about 100 metre with... More

So many different areas within this park. A long day to get around it all, but definitely worth it. The ice sculptures are worth a visit, so clever. We visited a couple of times in our 2.5 week visit to harbin.
