Beautiful frozen river

The river was covered with thick snow and sheets of white was seen everywhere, trees draped in snow. We saw the river at the other end of the bridge (highway) so it definitely... read more

One of the secrets of low cost travelling in Harbin is to take the local buses. It only costs 1 Yuan for as far as the bus takes you. Just jump on any bus and cross the road to take the same bus back to where you started. Anyway, we did that and got off the bus at the junction... More

Songhua river bridge is the main bridge of the city on the Songhua river. You can find more attractions on the river in the winter vacation e.g. ice skating, skiing with children, games, but all of them are paid.

Worth going on to get a view of the river banks. Gemma enjoyed it but though 'it's just a cable car innit'. I agreed. On the several minute journey we came up with a survival plan should the cable car stop. Tom thought he could climb down the support pylon, but I thought this claim was wildly optimistic. He had...

Dear All, you must visit to the frozen Songhua River in Harbin. You can find it at the end of the Zhongyang street Harbin. We went there early morning and there were a lot of fun activities on the frozen river like chair skiing, cycling, jeep and car riding, tube sliding etc etc. There were a lot of activities for...

This is the bridge that takes you across the river to Sun Island where the ice and snow sculptures are.

but all I can say is that is was big and long. The Stalin Plaza and the bridge and the Songhua River are on every tour of Harbin we saw offered. We were there in June, but none of the restaurants were open. Maybe we missed something, but we could not understand the "hype" about this bridge.

Harbin is in the far north of china not far from the Russian border and the Russian influence is all around the city. We were ther in January 2014 for the Ice Festival and the Songhua River was frozen. We spent a few days walking across the river near the bridge and enjoyed a sleigh ride as well.

Sure it's just a bridge that connects the mainland with the Sun Island. There's more to it. The river got frozen in the winter then melts in March. I visited there in the summer in Aug 2011 and recently during the May Labour Day holiday. It looks find but a lot better to simply enjoy the scenery of the Songhua... More

The river was covered with thick snow and sheets of white was seen everywhere, trees draped in snow. We saw the river at the other end of the bridge (highway) so it definitely look "untouched". Sadly, the fog prevented us from taking any nice pics.

We went, looking forward to a scenic walk over a pretty, frozen river, only to be sorely disappointed. The iced-over river was gray and covered in slush. We also saw ashes and other remnants of fires that the locals must have started to stay warm on the ice. Local Harbiners have turned the river into a tourist trap, with chairs... More
