Visiting China in January

January in northern China is dry and chilly, though the south remains relatively mild and humid.

Harbin in the northeast boasts the ideal wintertime climate for a frozen extravaganza. The annual Ice and Snow Sculpture Festival attracts thousands of visitors to the city each January. Towering sculptures of ice are illuminated by dazzling lights, best appreciated against the night sky.

If you’d rather keep warm, travel south to the sub-tropical climes of Xishuangbanna instead. Here, you can explore the vast Yuanyang Rice Terraces which flow in tiers down the hillsides and are tended to by the Hani and Yi people.
