If you belong to a Chinese dating site, chances are high that you might be interested in traveling to China one of these days to meet someone special. China is a wonderful place to visit any time of year, but if your travels will be taking you there between January and February, you might want to check out the Longqing Gorge Ice and Snow Festival.
The Longqing Gorge Ice and Snow Festival is celebrated from January 15th through February 28th in the city of Beijing. The festival is named for the Longqing Gorge, which is sometimes referred to as “Little Three Gorges” after the gorges in the Three Gorges Dam Project. The gorge itself is named after Emperor Longqing from the Ming Dynasty.
Nestled between two majestic mountain peaks, the Longqing Gorge is widely known as the site for the yearly Ice and Snow Festival, which is certainly a sight to behold. Enormous blocks of ice are carved into spectacular shapes such as animals, human figures, and even lanterns. There are also plenty of ceremonies, performances, folk dancing, exhibitions, pageants, and spectacular fireworks.
Whatever you do, don’t miss the festival at night. Colorful lights illuminate the ice and snow sculptures, making it a breathtakingly romantic spot, especially if that lovely lady you’ve been dating online via that Chinese dating site accompanies you!
