China: Harbin Ice and Snow World Festival
On January 5th, the 2013-2014 Harbin Ice and Snow World officially opened. This crystal dreamland was made by architects from all over the world out of merely ice and snow.
Tourists line up to enter the colourful ice wonderland, even with temperatures of minus 29 degrees Celsius.
The Harbin International Ice and Snow Festival normally lasts more than a month. The exact closing time depends on the weather and temperature.
