Touring around the Ice-Snow World in Harbin, northeast China's Heilongjiang Province, you must be attracted by a red squid shaped ice sculpture in the southwest of the park. And when you see the arch-shaped building on the side of the fishtail, you arrive at the ice bar.

Isn't it a cool thing to drink with an ice cup on an ice chair with ice wall surrounded? All the facilities in the ice bar are made of ice.

Similar to the ice bar, the beds and desks and other facilities in the ice hotel of the Ice-Snow World are also made of ice, attracting lots of tourists to experience this crystal world.

The ice hotel and ice bar in the Ice-Snow World were built using innovative ice shell technology this year. By adding natural fibers to the water to make the ice cubes stronger, you can create reliable building materials. China's first large-scale ice shell structure application has been successfully installed in the Ice-Snow World.
