City of Ice: Harbin, China
In the far and very cold northeastern corner of China lies the city of Harbin. Once a tiny Manchurian fishing village, the city became known as the “Paris of the Orient” after Russians made it a trade center along the Trans-Siberian Railway extension. Today, Harbin boasts what is perhaps the most impressive ice festival in the world, making sub-zero temperature look downright enchanting.
