What's the cause of the rumors I've heard that it's become a gritty, industrial city? Any truth to that?

It is definitely a city I want to see. I want to go there in the winter when there is the winter festival going on.

Not so much within the city, but there is some industry on the outskirts. Nothing like in other parts of the northeast, though. It's more of a trade and cultural center.

[IMG][/IMG]I LOVE Harbin! I'd so go back there again!

Anyway speaking of Harbin, there is a statue in it's snow festival where this particular sculpture of this lady stands out lording over the festival grounds. It has no official name but some believe it symbolizes the Russian presence in the city... Here's the pic if anyone's interested...
