Winter has arrived in South Korea, and so has the Harbin Ice & Snow Festival, thanks to a replica of the popular event being made for the first time outside of China. Taking place at the Alpensia Resort in Pyeongchang, the festivities in Korea has partnered with up to 300 ice artists certified by the city of Harbin to reproduce some of the works being showcased in the China festival. These works include ice sculptures of Rome’s Colosseum, Beijing’s Tiananmen Square, the Taj Mahal in Agra, along with a number of Korean landmarks like the Suwon Hwaseong Fortress and the nine-story pagoda from the Hwangnyongsaji Temple. In addition to these sculptures, there are attractions aplenty on the venue for visitors to enjoy, such as a unique carousel made of ice, an ice restaurant, as well as dog-sled rides for additional fun and adventure. The festival is set to run until February 28.
