Harbin – China’s Ice City (Part Two) Posted by on Apr 10, 2013 in Culture, Vocabulary

In case you missed out on all the fun during the daytime in Harbin, you can find that video here. This new video takes you on a stroll of Harbin’s famous Central Avenue in the evening, with a stop at the beautiful St. Sophia Russian orthodox church and a cool night market. A hearty meal of handmade dumplings will get you ready to brave the cold once more for some nighttime sledding, and then it’s time to party with some KTV and the only bar in town.
