If you have not yet planned your annual leave this winter, it is time to do it now with China Odyssey Tours. Although it is a bit out of the spotlight, the winter of China is indeed a big time for exotic travel experience and authentic Chinese culture.
There are some unique things to see only available in winter.
The Harbin International Ice and Snow Festival 2009, started from 5th January lasting for nearly 3 months, is definitely the highlight and must-go of a winter tour to China. Every year, artists from around the world will gather in China's northern city Harbin to create a fantasy of ice, snow, and fireworks. There will be literally an ice city created for the festival. Tens of thousands of tons of ice and snow will be used to construct buildings and restaurants in life sizes, and thousands of ice and snow sculptures will be created.
Travel China in winters, the views on the Great Walls and the Yellow Mountain (Mt. Huangshan) are most stunning. What can be more exciting for shopping when the brands you love are at half price or less? The winter Christmas sales in Hong Kong is in-no-doubt the paradise for your hunting on luxury brand clothing, jewelry, and electronic devices. But most importantly, you will get the most authentic impression of Chinese culture. Many Chinese customs and traditions are associated with winter, particularly during the Chinese Lunar New Year around late January.
