About Harbin


Harbin, also known as the Ice City, is the birthplace of Mandarin which draws a lot of people to this city to study Chinese. It gets its secondary name, ‘The Ice City’, from the world class Ice and Snow festival it hosts each year and all throughout winter, ice carved lamps are scattered throughout the city. The Harbin greater area boasts some of the best ski fields in China, which can be reached in as little as 40 minutes. A day on the slopes, including transport, gear hire and a ski pass can cost as little as RMB100-150.  


A quick search of Harbin will show you pictures of its streets lined in unique Baroque architecture. It has an interesting history and became a boom in the late 19th century, when Russian and Jewish refugees fled to this ‘Paris of the East’ to take refuge. 


In the summer, everything comes back to life. Beer tents replace the ice-lanterns and offer a refreshing place to cool off from the heat. The city’s gardens turn back to green and the frozen solid river slowly starts shifting icebergs before it’s finally returned to its original water currents. 


Why choose a less international city?


Rich Cultural Experiences


Harbin provides you with an opportunity to immerse yourself in Chinese culture and provides plenty of opportunity for you to fine tune your Chinese skills. 


Meaningful Relationships


The foreign community is less transient that other major regions and the city itself is not as big. This makes it easy to meet people from all around the world, because many of us congregate in the same areas. 


Forming meaningful relationships is the first step to feeling at home in your new environment and as Harbin is known for its hospitality and warmth towards people this is easier to fit into the community. 


Get more for your dollar


Most people generally save more than half of their salary each month and that's including rent, entertainment, food and transport, this is because the cost of living is so much lower than Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Guangzhou and other major cities in China.
