  1. can we book the shuttle bus from snow town to Harbin only. we will be leaving snowtown on the 26th January 2017 going to Harbin. And if so can we book through you?

  2. Daniel says:

    Hi Rakenna Priede,

    We don’t have the booking service. But no worries. Actually you can book your return shuttle from the snow town to Harbin while you are in snow town.

  3. Chan says:

    Hi there,

    Is there a daily bus from Harbin to snow town?
    what are the bus schedule? Is there only one timing from Harbin to snow town?
    Can we book the bus ticket through you?

    Thanks in advance.

  4. Daniel says:

    Hi Chan,

    At present we don’t sell the bus tickets for China snow town. Yes, in winter season there is a bus line connecting Harbin, Yabuli and China Snow Town.

  5. Tracy says:

    Hi we are going to Snowtown in January too, is there anywhere you can buy bus tickets in advance as we don’t want to miss out. Do they put on more buses if it’s busy season. Thanks Tracy

  6. Daniel says:

    Hi Tracy,

    We don’t have the information on the advance bus ticket booking for Harbin Yabuli Snow Village line.

    Alternatively, most of the hotels and family-run inns offer shared shuttle service.

  7. JW says:

    Hi, we are going to Snowtown in January. How will I be able to purchase the bus tickets? Do they sell the tickets on the spot or do I have to book it in advance? Thanks in advance.

  8. Daniel says:

    Hi JW,

    Basically they sell the tickets on the spot. Alternatively you ask your hotel or inn in Snow Town for a shared shuttle bus.

  9. JW says:

    Hi Daniel, can I ask what is the frequency of the shuttle bus like? Thank you

  10. Daniel says:

    Hi JW,

    Thanks for your inquiry!

    As far as I know, there are two daily shuttle buses.

    1. Harbin – Yabuli – Snow Town ( 5 hours – 300km: 120 yuan )
    First Bus: 6:00 am from Jiuzhan Street 九站街; 6:40 am from Fengang Passenger Bus Station 分南岗客运站发车
    Second Bus: 11:30 am from Jiuzhan Street 九站街; 12:30 am from Fengang Passenger Bus Station 分南岗客运站发车

    Return Bus: 8:ooam and 1:00pm from Snow Town

    The Above is only for your reference.

    hi Daniel , if i start yabuli .what time shutter bus start yabuli ski .where is start?

    you can recommed hotel stay night at snow town?

    thank .ps. i travel 29 december 16

  12. Daniel says:

    Hi Oil,

    Actually I have no experience taking the shuttle bus from Yabuli to Snow Town. You may ask the local hotel staff for the bus station.

    Nowadays Snow Town has become a hot tourist destination. As you can imagine, a popular tourist place tend to be a mony-making machine. Very often you will fall into traps of your being ripped off.

    It is not easy job to recommend a hotel or inn for you.

  13. celia says:

    Hi Daniel, I am planning to visit Changbai Mountain 长白山 after Snow town. Wondering is there any direct shuttle bus services ? or Yanbian, Jilin ?

  14. Daniel says:

    Hi Celia,

    Thanks for your inquiry!

    Sorry, personally I’ve never been to Changbaishan. To my knowledge, you should first take the early morning public bus fron Snow Town to Mudanjiang (牡丹江), and get off at Mudanjiang Railway Station where you connect local long-distance bus from Mudanjiang to Erdao Baihe Township (二道白河). At Erdao Baihe Township, you hire a local van for Changbaishan. The bus (6 hours) and van ( half hour ) take 6 and half hours, about 400km.

    Alternatiely, you may take part in a local tour from Mudanjiang to Changbaishan.

    Have a nice time in Northeast China!

  15. Fiza says:

    Hi Daniel,
    I will be visiting Harbin next month & I believe there is no snow in snow town? however I am still interested to see the town even though it is already spring time. Is there any shuttle bus to the snow town in other season or the shuttle bus is only available during winter? If yes, is it the same terminal & timetable?

    Many thanks Daniel

  16. Daniel says:

    Hi Fiza,

    Thanks for your inquiry! As far as I know the shuttle service is seasonal, not available during tourism low season.

  17. Andrew says:

    Hi,

    I will be visiting Harbin 1st week of January 2018. I was wondering about the shuttle bus from Harbin City to Yabuli Ski Resort start at 6am. According to this website, it will stop at 3 pick up locations. May I know where exactly the stop for Jiuzhan Street (九站街)? According building or landmarks?

    Thanks
    Andrew

  18. Christine says:

    Hi,

    I will be in Harbin on 16th Jan 2017 and I would like to pay a visit to Snow Town too.
    Can you please advise the schedule for the shuttle bus from Harbin to Snow Town is still valid as per below published in the website? Is there any trips available other than the one listed below?

    Shuttle Bus Timetable:
    Harbin – China Snow Town 6:00 – 11:40
    China Snow Town – Harbin 8:00 – 13:40

  19. Daniel says:

    Dear Christine,

    Thanks for your enquiry! Not 100% about this year’s bus schedule. The last year’s bus schedule suggest people should take the special bus from Nangang Passenger Bus Station 南岗客运. The bus leaves from Nangang at 6:00, then stop at No.4-1 Jiuzhan Street, Lidao District(哈尔滨道里区九站街4-1) Harbin at 6:30, and then continue to drive to Snow Town and arrive at Snow Town at 11:30.

    Back from Snow Town Tourist Center and leave at 13:00 and arrive at No.4-1 Jiuzhan Street, Lidao District (哈尔滨道里区九站街4-1) Harbin at 18:20.

    You’d better get on the bus from Nangang Bus Terminal instead of No.4-1 Jiuzhan Street.

    Good Luck!

  20. Daniel says:

    Dear Andrew,

    As far as I know, you’d better take the bus from Nangang Bus Station ( 南岗汽车站). The buses leave at 7:00, 10:30 and 13:00.

    Thanks for your inquiry!

  21. Yennie says:

    Hi Daniel,

    I’ll be visiting Snow Town on 1st week of January 2019. May i know where’s the Snow Town Tourist Center located? I mean the address, so i can find a hotel or inn near it.

    Thanks

  22. Daniel says:

    Dear Yennie,

    China Snow Town is a one-street town, about 500 meters long. The street is known as Xueyun Dajie ( Xueyun Street ). The tourist center is located in the middle section of the street. In the tourist center you can buy bus tickets.

    I suggest you stay at Xueyunge Hotel ( 雪韵阁酒店), just close to the tourist center.

  23. Brenda says:

    Hi,

    I would like to plan a trip on march to Harbin – Yabuli – China Snow Town, will there be shuttles bus service during this period? the bus shuttle service will end on February ?

    Operating Time:Mid-December to February

    Thanks

  24. Daniel says:

    Dear Brenda,

    As far as I know, snow melts away in March at China Snow Town. So there should be no shuttle bus service which is supposed to operate during the tourist snow season.

  25. Sp says:

    Hi
    Is there a direct bus from Harbin to Changbaishan?

  26. Daniel says:

    Dear Sp,

    As far as I know, there is a direct bus line running between Harbin and Changbaishan. Please check out more detailed information through your hotel or local travel agency. Have a nice time!
