It must have been 40 degrees centigrade outdoors, but it was below zero in this haven of ice sculptures. I played bump car on ice and played on an ice slide.

One of the reasons I moved to Northeast China was to be able to see the Ice and Snow World and I was not disappointed. It was incredible!!! Very cold in early February, but you just need to dress for the weather. Spectacular!!

My wife is disabled and we used a wheelchair the whole time of the visit. Use crimp ons with your shoes it can be slippery in places. There are several fast food outlets available
