What are the numbers and averages?
|The Songhua is one of the most important waterways in China as it stretches across nearly 2,000km of the north. In winter, it is quite an attraction in Harbin. The water freezes 1 meter thick here and for much of the season it is a great expanse for skating, horse drawn sledges, and (for the odd individual) swimming!|

|When frozen it is possible to walk straight across the river to Sun Island Park, and therefore Ice and Snow Sculpture Festival (Ice and Snow World)and Harbin International Ice and Snow Sculpture Festival (Sun Island) on the other side.|

|There are various make-shift ice-related activities available here, as well vendors selling (limited) hot snacks and sweet treats.|
