Last year over 800,000 individuals visited northeast China’s Harbin Ice and Snow World. For roughly $50 per person, visitors can tour the 600,000 square meter wonderland, featuring monumental carved ice sculptures illuminated with colored LEDs. This year features an homage to global structures, with a scaled replica of the Empire State Building delivering a solid wow factor. Over 180,000 cubic meters of ice were used in the construction. It’s also not too late to visit—the site-specific exhibition will remain open through March 2014.
