The train left Beijing to head northeastwards, passing Shanhaiguan Pass, before reaching Guandong (east of the Pass) which covers three provinces of Liaoning, Jilin and Heilongjiang. This is a vast land filled with wonder and romance, where tourist attractions can be found everywhere in the luxuriate forests of the scenic Changbai Mountain and Xing'an Mountain, on the fertile fields of the vast plains, and along the golden beaches of the Liaodong Peninsula. In
winter, when the land is blanketed with ice and snow, Guandong becomes a more enchanting traveler's wonderland
of unique northern scenery.
Yabuli Ski Resort
The prime choice to see ice and snow is in Harbin, capital city of Heilongjiang Province, known as "Moscow of the Orient". Highlights of Harbin include colorful and mysterious ice lanterns, crystal-clear ice carvings and
pure-white snow sculptures of exquisite craftsmanship. Sport-lovers may choose to ride a wind-driven snow sledge with sail to tear along the snow-covered fields or make a jump
into the icy water, or go to the Yabuli Ski Resort by a new expressway. For newly - weds, they may attend a grand
group wedding ceremony held during the joyful ice and Snow Festival.
