Several penguins from Harbin Polarland, an arctic-themed aquarium in northeast China's Heilongjiang Province, paid a surprise visit to Harbin Ice and Snow World on Sunday, quickly becoming the center of attention.

Each with a small backpack attached to their backs, the penguins were found waddling in the venue as if they were heading to school. The lovely little creatures were soon surrounded by crowds of tourists and photographers who couldn't wait to take pictures.
