Heilongjiang

Heilongjiang Province is the northeastern most province in China. There are nine popular tourist destinations, including Harbin, Qiqihar, Mudanjiang, Jiamusi, Daqing, Yichun, Acheng, Suifenhe, Hulin, and Tieli in Heilongjiang. And for good reason, the region is packed with incredible nature reserves, scenic spots, forest parks. Heilongjiang has 15 national reserves and 35 provincial reserves. The province has 34 major scenic spots alongside two scenic spots, i.e., the Wudalianchi and Jingpo Lake Scenic Spots, which are national while the remaining 32 are provincial ones, including Sun Island, Mingyue Island, Chenxing Island, Xingkai Lake, Lotus Lake, Erlong Mountain, and Peach Mountain. 

There are also 96 forest parks throughout the province, among which 54 are national parks and 42 are provincial parks. Most famous among those forest parks are Wuying National Forest Park, Harbin National Forest Park, Ning’an Crater National Forest Park, and Mudanjiang National Forest Park. 

Ice sculpture has developed into a recognized art form since its emergence in Harbin in the early 1960s and has made real impact in the cultural landscape and identity. Errenzhuan, a song-and-dance duet popular in the northeast of China, came into being more than 200 years ago. It has developed gradually from northeastern China’s yangko and folk songs by learning from and absorbing other performing arts like Lianhualao, Ping Opera, and shadow play, and is especially popular in Jilin, Liaoning, and Heilongjiang, where the art form has evolved into a northern version that has its own features and differs distinctly from the art as practiced in the provinces to the south. This version features higher exquisiteness and beautiful voices in the performances.
