Living room made of ice in the ice hotel.
Some of these winter swimmers are in their 70s. They go for a dip every day.
A swimming area is cut from the ice covering the Songhua River.
The Siberian tiger reserve is Harbin's other big draw. Live animals are fed to the tigers. Here they eye a bird.
There's barely a chase.
Next a live calf is dumped from a truck. The tigers pounce.
The calf didn't stand a chance.
Tourists enjoy the spectacle from the safety of mini-vans, just meters away.
