Harbin International Ice and Snow Festival (part 4)

January 21st

Our last full day in Harbin started with going to the 'Temple of Bliss'. It only cost 10 RMB to get in and was much like the Bhuddist temple we have in Jiamusi. There was some fantastic art work inside the temple and outside there were many shops selling anything that had to do with Bhuddist, Confucius or Hindu religions. We went to the 'Dragon Tower' after lunch. The 'Dragon Tower' is the second largest steel lattice observation tower in the world at 338 meters tall. It has shops, offices, a broadcast station, museum, restaurant and three observation levels. The price to get in and go to the top was 150 RMB each. I feel the price is just as high as the tower itself, but the view is awesome. We finished by trying to go to our favorite little pizza place only to find they had closed for the holidays. We wound up going to Pizza Hut instead. It was almost like back home. It cost a little more than 'Great Pizza' but was a very nice experience.
