Gorgeous Harbin Ice Festival Photos

Architecture and Design posted some AMAZING photographs of The Harbin Ice Festival in China. The festival includes epic snow and ice sculptures, and the whole place is lit with ice lanterns at night.

The rest of A & D’s images found here.

  1. Man, what a fun place that I am way too cold-wimpy to visit!!!

  2. Duuuude, this looks so rad. There are giant ice slides! Plane tickets to China are probably totally reasonably priced, right?

    • “probably totally reasonably.” A+ wordsmithing, me.

      FLY FROM CANADA! They’re probably still super expensive, but I just learned that flights from Canada are SO MUCH CHEAPER, and I am pretty pumped about it. Seriously, my vacation costs just went down by about $1500 in exchange for driving an extra 30 miles.

      In case I haven’t mentioned it before (I definitely have), I LOVE traveling, and making travel plans gets me all tingly and excited.

        That’s so crazy? I wonder why it’s so much cheaper?

        • facetaco says:

          I don’t know, but plane tickets are roughly half the price flying out of Windsor as they are flying from Detroit, and they’re practically neighbors. It’s such a vast difference that I feel certain that I’m doing something illegal, and they’re going to stop me at the border.

          Ugh! Canada gets everything. They already have hockey, Tim Horton’s and free healthcare! Now they have cheap flights too!??!

          I think it’s an economy of scale. We love to jump ship! Flying within Canada is crazy expensive, though. I can fly to Paris twice for the price of a ticket to fucking Saskatchewan. (Not doing wonders for your tourism image, there, Sasky!)

          Fun fact: Saskatchewan is the sunniest place in Canada, because there are no mountains to create cloud cover. Apparently the university there was trying to attract international students and ran these ad campaigns all over the middle east saying “Study in Saskatchewan: the sunniest place in Canada!” or something, and these poor guys were getting off of planes in February, when it goes down to -40 on a pretty regular basis, wearing light sweaters sweaters and ski jackets. Woops, sorry guys!

    Guys, I’m sorry to keep going off-topic today, but my avoidance of work has led me to seek out old websites that are still active, and I found this animated GIF that you will all want to file away for future use:
