BEIJING--26 Dec--PRNewswire/InfoQuest

China is significantly different from Thailand in climate, culture, natural scenery and folklore, which triggers a strong desire among Thai people for travelling to China. This winter, China Ice and Snow Tourism Promotion Alliance has integrated regional advantages in ice and snow resources, and launched five tourist routes with the theme of ice and snow: Joyous Folklore Trip, Thrilling Vitality Trip, Fantastic Art Trip, Romantic Hot Spring Trip, and Gorgeous Scenery Trip, offering more options to get close to China's ice and snow.

Happy Chinese New Year Reflected in Ice and Snow

As the grandest festival in China, Spring Festival serves as an important carrier for Chinese people's emotions and desires. It is also the annual carnival and eternal spiritual pillar of the Chinese nation. Thanks to the distinctive regional culture and other factors, Northeast China has the richest festival atmosphere during the Chinese New Year, thus giving rise to the characteristic route of Joyous Ice and Snow Folklore Trip.

Starting from Yuxian County, Zhangjiakou, it takes you to enjoy the authentic drama singing and Yangge dance performing, as it gives you an opportunity to make a wonderful papercut for window decoration. With the festivities of Spring Festival, it is sure that you will immerse yourself in a happy mood, reluctant to leave. Coming to Changchun, you will find yourself encircled by the strong movie elements in the theme park of Changchun Movie Wonderland, where cultural connotation takes root, and by shuttling through museums, you can feel the profound history as well. You will cheerfully participate in winter fishing in Jingpo Lake, watch the rolling snowy mountains in the Snow Town, and join in the celebrations of Spring Festival. In the beautiful Harbin where European elements exist, you will pass exquisite churches while listening to music. This route runs all the way to Hailar, where mystic Ice and Snow Naadam and unique Mongolian customs are sure to impress you.

Praised as "one of the most desirable natural places in China for developing the ski tourist industry", Chongli is a paradise for ski enthusiasts at home and abroad. Owing to superior resources, with accumulative snowpack mounting to one meter's thick, and snowy days existing for more than 150 days, endless tourists flood here.
