Easily can see lots of Wusong in one place. Wusong is one of the best natural scenary in China, a must-see while you are in Jilin.

Whilst Wusong Island gets great reviews, it can be hit and miss as you will see. For a better and far more convenient look at rime (wusong), go about 10 -15km's north along the Songhua river (just past all the newly developed housing) and you...More

one of China's natural wonders. You have to see the way the snow hangs on the trees. It is amazing. I missed the carved ice show but I saw the set up. I think this will be great. Beautiful walks.

As you might aware the rime phenomena only occurs when weather condition permit. I think is a 60-40 chance. We depart from 5.30AM and it took around 1 hour with some snowfall. I paid a taxi from Jilin downtown for 280RMB (return trip) after much...More
