Harbin, the capital city of China's northernmost Heilongjiang province, has been voted as one of the top 10 most popular Chinese cities among international tourists.
Metropolises Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou claimed the first three places as international tourists' ideal travel destinations, followed by Shenzhen, Chengdu, Xi'an, Hangzhou, Nanjing, Tianjin and Harbin.
The ranking is based on data from a survey jointly conducted by the China Tourism Academy and Google.
The survey's results were announced in the 2021 World Tourism Cities Blue Book. The document was released by the China Tourism Academy at the 2021 China Zhengzhou International Tourism City Mayor Forum, which was held on April 21 in Zhengzhou in Central China's Henan province.
The 2021 World Tourism Cities Blue Book pointed out that, in addition to China's top tourism cities, the willingness of international tourists to come to Harbin and other Chinese cities has increased significantly.
The characteristic culture of cities such as Harbin has increasingly become a key factor in attracting foreign tourists.
When mentioning travel to Harbin, the images that come to people's minds must be the gorgeous ice and snow sculptures and rich winter entertainment options during its annual Harbin International Ice and Snow Festival. The event has become one of the world's four largest ice and snow festivals, along with the Sapporo Snow Festival in Japan, the Quebec Winter Carnival in Canada and Norway's Ski Festival.
But there are plenty more reasons to visit the city. From Russian architectural styles and multicultural delicacies to splendid wetlands, mountain and river scenery, well-preserved cultural relics and Siberian tigers, there's sure to be something for everyone in the city.
