Ice Festival

In the evening of my second day in Harbin I befriended a couple of Chinese people at my hostel. They were all heading out to the ice festival, so I joined them. As the ice festival hadn’t yet officially opened only groups were allowed inside and the tickets were only sold by group organisers. Good thing I joined my Chinese group or otherwise I would have had a very difficult time getting inside.

The ice festival is super expensive but I think very worth seeing. Here a few pictures:

I love this picture.

After the ice festival I had dinner with the group and learned that in Harbin you eat complete raw garlic with your meals. I tried and even liked it. Locals must hate to kiss though. *garlic breath*
