Except Siberian tigers there were also other animals to watch



The Chinese are very innovative people, they crossed a tiger with a lion and called
it "liger"



Not far away from the reserve another ice festival with a ridicolous entrance fee. In total Harbin has 3 areas with illuminated ice sculptures. This ice festival has become the citys most important tourist attraction



During daytime it is not very impressive so we let it be

SHENYANG



This "greyish" city is capital of Liaoning province and not necessarily a tourist attraction.



Liaoning province is located in the Noth-Eastern region of China which Chinese refer to as "Dongbei". It used to be Chinas main industrial region and Shanyang was its eonomic hub in communist times.



this and the first hphoto were taken out of the hotel room, thats why it looks a bit bland
