The Festivals get better every year, tourism really is taking off in this region, we are seeing more and more British people travelling there, the Festivals are definitely the highlight, don't forgot to visit the North East Tiger Park aswell. Some great architecture remains in Harbin dating from early 1900s (the legacy of the Russian development of the town). And the regional Black Dragon cuisine goes down well on these cold days. Russian bread and spicy sausage is another local speciality.
