Tourists have hotpot in an ice hotel in Harbin, China

Tourists enjoyed hotpot and threw back some vodka in a restaurant built entirely out of ice from the nearby frozen Songhua River during Harbin’s annual Ice Festival.

The temperature inside the restaurant was below zero and tourists dug into their meals surrounded by colourful light fixtures made out of ice as hotpot steam filled the air. As beer froze within 20 seconds, many patrons opted for vodka served in ice cups. Harbin, one of China’s coldest cities where temperatures can drop as low as 35 degrees Celsius below zero. The city is famous for its winter celebrations with a series of activities related to ice and snow. The festival, which began on Saturday (January 5), has drawn millions of visitors from around the world every year since its inception in the early 1980s. The seasonal ice restaurant is open until early March.
