Hi,

I would miss out on the Erlongshan Ski Resort and spend your three days in and around the city centre. You will have enough time to visit all the places you mention and quite possibly Unit 731. Do also spend a few hours walking on the frozen river which has a number of attractions.

Hi,

Yes, I was indeed referring to the Songhua River which runs through Harbin. I shall try and get some information about buses to the Ski Centre you mention.

Hi MTMSG,

Both Erlongshan and Yabuli are very far away from Harbin, it usually takes about 2 hours to reach Erlongshan from Harbin city center by car, and it takes about 4 hours to reach to Yabuli from Harbin city center, coz drivers have to driver very slowly and carefully due to the icy road conditions in wintertime for safety reason.

Songhua River and Winter Swimming Watching can be included in day 1 (Dec 28). Your itinerary is ok, you can spend maximum 2 hours in each attractions.

Hi,

Are you planning to visit the Ice Festival? If so, you should allow far more than two hours. You can get there on bus 29, a double decker. I suggest walking around during daylight hours, take a break to eat/drink and then walk around once the area is lit up.

Hi Harbin T,

Thank you for the suggestion. May I know if Jihua Ski Resort is the nearest to Harbin City compared to other ski resorts? tour websites stated only 40mins drive however google map shows 1h30mins drive.

Cheers!
