Harbin is the capital of a northern province in China called Heilongjiang. With the very cold weather during winter, Harbin was transformed into a tourist spot with its ice carvings and other attractions related to winter. However, Harbin has also an economic zone which props up its economy. I would like to visit Harbin just for the ice carvings although I'm not sure if I can withstand the cold temperature. Do you know of some other attractions in Harbin an in outlying towns?
