This is an area that I had not heard about at all until I was sent a link to the details of the Harbin Snow and Ice Festival. My recent thread shows all the details and pictures. It was a truly amazing trip.

If any of you decide to visit Harbin Billy Yuyo was an EXCELLENT guide. He handled our time well and we really enjoyed the fantastic snow and ice festivals. We also could not believe the Siberian Tiger reserve with 600 Siberian Tigers.

You cannot go wrong with Billy, he is an intelligent delightful young man with excellent English.
