Being an avid Club Med fan, I knew that I had to visit Club Med’s first resort in China. And that I did, within a week of the resort’s opening in November 2010. I also took advantage of the resort’s opening promotion, and enjoyed discounted rates for my stay there.
To get to the resort, we had to take a flight from Singapore to Beijing, then a domestic flight from Beijing to Harbin. The resort is actually a four-hour drive from Harbin airport, in Yabuli, Heilongjiang province. We arranged our flight transfers by ourselves but had Club Med arrange the pick-up from the airport. The drive from the airport was pretty smooth with broad highway roads. The winter landscapes along the way made me feel l was in Switzerland instead of in China, as the fields were blanketed in a thick layer of snow and there were many huts interspersed along the route to Yabuli.
