China Builds Another Impressive Ice City
February 9, 2012
As we all know by now, China has a tendency to adopt a ‘go big or go home’ policy on most things, including, or particularly, ice architecture. Case in point, the annual Harbin Ice Festival, which, if it weren’t for its distracting, Neopets-revival flash website, we’re sure we would have attended back in December. A few days ago in Beijing, a similar sub-zero celebration took place in honor of the Lunar New Year. The Yangqing Ice Festival was the grand finale to welcome the year of the dragon, and locals and tourists were treated to yet another vibrant display of chilled Chinese architecture. The Daily Mail recently shared photos of visitors exploring a spectacular miniature city of translucent neon temples. More photos after the jump.
