Some members of the audience pointed out that the Harbin government and Party committee have been paying more attention to the tourism business and have a new idea of combining tourism with culture and fashion. Harbin is already famous as an ice and snow tourist destination in winter, and the new "Summer Fun in Harbin" brand is meant to cover the warm months. In winter it is truly a “City of Ice” with a global reputation, but last year it became a major summer resort for the mainland, and a cool, romantic summer city.

Over the next four months, it will hold “The 5th China Harbin Songhua River Wetland Festival”, “2015 China Harbin International Beer Festival”, and “4th China Harbin WuHua Mountain Autumn festival” to give tourists from China and abroad a lovely scenic summer life.
