This was easy, line wasn’t long and was a great view. Once you reach the other side there’s plenty of options to get to the attractions

It is good if you would like to cross the river. I went to Harbin 2-5 Dec. The river was frozen and can walk cross the river by the way it is cold and freeze your feet of course. The price is too high so...More
