Ice fest kicks off January 5, 2014 – Cue jaw drops. Amazing ice sculptures and replicas highlight the annual Harbin Ice and Snow Festival in the northern Chinese city of Harbin.
City of ice. And lights – No wonder Harbin is one of China's top winter destinations.
Ice Iceland – This year's festival features a replica of Iceland's Hallgrimskirkja church with a 240 meter slide that visitors can slide down.
Biggest ice – According to officials, the Hallgrimskirkja Church replica is China's largest ice structure, standing 46 meters tall.
Replica Colosseum – When in Harbin, do as the Romans do?
Pretty, but cold – Known as China's Ice City, Harbin's sub-zero temperatures keep teeth chattering through the winter.
River resource – Yep, that ice palace is made entirely of ice blocks from the frozen Songhua River.
Night riders – You can ride a horse-drawn carriage through the 600,000-square-meter display park.
Winter ball – If you can't make it to Rio, you can pose with 2014 Brazilian World Cup mascot sculptures in Harbin.
World travel – Icelandic church? Check. Great Wall of China? Check. Roman Colosseum? Check. Who said you can't be in three places at once?
