The 30th Harbin Sun Island International Snow Sculpture Expo concluded on March 11. However, its host site will reopen to tourists on April 1 following repairs and maintenance.

This year’s expo ran for 82 days starting on Dec 20, 2017, and received a total of 400,000 tourists from home and abroad.

The expo included a 3D lightshow telling the story of Harbin’s winter activities and the history of the snow sculpture expo.

The expo was held on Harbin Sun Island, a 5A scenic spot on the northern bank of Songhua River.

Its unique natural beauty is well known. Tourists can enjoy waterfalls, blooming flowers, migrating birds, and a diverse range of local customs.
