One of the hidden wonders of Harbin is the Grand Theatre. It is an absolutely stunning building. There is a path that leads up onto the roof and gives an amazing view of the Northern and Southern parts of the City – just try and ignore all the spiders keeping you company along the way.
Not the best name for a park, but it’s a really nice place to walk along the Songhua River. Found at the end of ZhongYang DaJie, the park has a large paved concourse that leads to parks running alongside the river. Lots of activity, as you would expect in a Chinese park, but what caught my eye the most, were these old guys writing on the paving.
Zhongyangdajie, or central street, is a pedestrianised cobble street. Lots of crowds, shops and atmosphere.
I don’t know who this guy was, but he was here both times I visited. He was filming for a blog or something. The first time he was very noisy. This time, not so much.
A buddhist monk I saw a couple of times around the downtown area, standing outside the best bookshop in the world.
The first images from my recent trip to Harbin in Northeastern China.
There are two temples in close proximity to each other, one is the large Buddhist complex, but tucked away between a university and an army base is the smaller Confucian temple. Unlike the Buddhist temple, The Confucian temple is free to enter (you just need your Passport).
A great (and quiet) place to visit, and as a bonus, there were a couple of photo shoots going on, so I had to sneak a couple of shots – as you do.
