The tour exceeded my expectations in terms of comfort and organisation. The tour was a perfect mix of ancient and modern including the Great Wall, Terracotta army, historic Beijing. The highlight for me was the Harbin Festival with both the Snow and Ice Parks providing hours of entertainment with intricate sculptures, ice swimmers, cute Arctic foxes and plenty of opportunities for hot drinks. Arriving in Harbin on the overnight train was another chance to experience a slice of Chinese culture as we all had to share with local people due to heavy bookings in the New Period period.

Visiting the Great Wall - amazing, Snow Sculpture Park and Ice Festival met all expectations. Unexpected treat the site of the original Ice Festival in the middle of Harbin
and the ice sculptures there.
Remember to keep nose covered in Harbin as had ice formed in nostrils !!

The Ice and Snow Festival in Harbin. The giant candy-coloured ice palaces, buildings and monuments were themed on Italy this year, so we circled an ochre-coloured Coliseum and crossed (gingerly) a humpy, icy, multi-coloured Rialto Bridge. In the parks we tried out the (mini) ice slide (slippery and scary but short), snapped away at the chunky snow sculptures carved into cute shapes and admired the intricate glistening ice carvings - a marlin, fish, dolphins, and of course horses, since it was soon to be the Year of the Horse.Mr Liu's delicious lunch and crickets (wrestling, not edible!) in the Beijing hutongs.Sampling silkworm (sweet) and snake (salty) kebabs in the Beijing Night Food Market.Being understood when I tried out my limited Mandarin, especially on the overnight sleeper. Ollie (Luo Yang Hong), our indefatigable Chinese guide worked tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure all ran smoothly. We learned so much about China from him and he seemed particularly to enjoy sharing his love of his home town, Xi'an with us. Thanks, Ollie! And thanks for the 'hong bao' lucky red envelope.
