    I have been to several rinks, some rinks only have chinese language capible coaches, so this would be a consideration. However, some rinks have foregn and local people who speak english or other languages. You would have to call around and ask, maybe need a chinese speaking friend to do the asking to get quickly your answer. Hope this helps.

    Hi

    Roughly when does the ice melt at the outdoor rinks and become too thin for ice skating? Is it late February or early March? I know this varies year to year but I’m just trying to get an idea of when it usually is.

    Thanks

  6. Daniel says:

    Dear Jarrod,

    It is really hard to predict the time for the ice melting, largely depending on the actual weather condition and temperature. Late Feb and early March are too late. January is most secure to skate on the ice lake.

  7. Justin says:

    Hi there, will the ice lake be available for skating during late December? Thanks.

  8. Daniel says:

    Dear Justin,

    Basically, the opening for most of the skating rinks depends on the actual weather condition. As for Shichahai Skating Rink ( popularly known as Houhai), it will be open at the end of December,2017 and close at the Feb, 2018. But it also depends on the weather.
