Heilongjiang shows off its icy life at Expo
With four days to go before the official opening of the Shanghai Expo, organizers of Heilongjiang Province's pavilion have prepared a magical ice and snow world to entice visitors.
"We are giving visitors a chance to explore a dream-like ice city with all kinds of activities. We hope city dwellers will get a taste of how great life is in a world of ice and snow," said Li Deshan, commissioner-general of the Heilongjiang pavilion.
The Heilongjiang pavilion, designed to look like an ice sculpture, is actually made of crystal resin. Its theme is "Ice and Snow Make Us Extraordinary."
"Panoramic movies and folk performances will showcase Heilongjiang's ecology and environment, as well as its tourist attractions and ice culture," Li said.
"Interactive games, such as curling and skiing will let visitors experience the exhilaration of winter sports," he added.
Heilongjiang in China's far northeast is famous for its breath-taking scenery, winter sports and the annual Harbin Ice Sculpture Festival which attracts millions of tourists from all over the world. Winter temperatures can fall to as low as minus 50 degrees Celsius.
