For more details, TCT would like to list some suggestions to keep warming in Harbin:

1. If travelers come from subtropic or tropic areas, you can buy fur clothing and cashmeres when arrival Harbin. It is a good way to save money and cut down the weight of luggage in the same time.
*Avoid buy white color clothing because it is hard to discover by drivers on the road or others when you play in the snow ground.

2. Cold-proof coat, shoes, and hat are necessary. A pair of cold-proof shoes or boots is the most important equipment. The ones with light weight and skid resistance will be the best one.

3. When playing outdoors, cotton-made or fur-made hat is necessary. The best one should have ear flaps.

4. Wearing gloves outdoors. Don’t touch metal items with bare hands.

5. When go indoor from the outside, change your clothes timely. Because there may be have a 40 - 50℃ temperature difference, it is easy to catch a cold if you could not adjust your wearing immediately.

6. Harbin in winter is very dry so better to do well preparation for that by carrying hand cream, lip pomade, etc. Drinking enough water in every day is also a great way to protect yourself away from the dry air.
