Many travel guide will tell you Jilin is only visited by those looking for a little bit extra from a China trip, and it seems to be sure.

Other products in Jilin include ganoderma, the tuber of elevated gastrodia, astragali, and pine mushroom, hedge hogs fungus, and frog fat.

Jilin has so much to offer in natural beauty and resources - fertile land, dense forests, a wide variety of birds and animals, and vast grasslands. The most noteworthy attraction is definitely The Heavenly Lake (Tianchi) in Changbaishan. The province also has many human travel attractions, mostly reflecting contemporary Chinese history. Amongst them, the most popular include the former government office of the Japanese puppet state, the Monument to the Martyrs of the Soviet Red Army, the Automobile Town, and the Changchun Film Studio. In addition, some of China's best winter sports and the Ice Lantern Festival draw throngs of people to Jilin in the winter months.

Due to sharp climatic differences between summer and winter, any travel itinerary here is highly dependant upon when you are in the province.

I’d like to visit the Rime Island in Jilin Province, China this winter. So could you please tell me the way to get there, the temperature and the entrance fee about it?

It is my pleasure. You can drive along the river eastward to go by Wu A Street and Manchu Town to enter Hantun and drive along the river westward to go by Tuchengzi Town to enter Zengtong; several alone islands in the heart of the river are generally known as Rime Island. Or take passenger bus to Wula Street at Chalu Town Bus Station in Jilin City (35 kilometers in total) and then take minibus or taxi to Hantun, the east ferry of Rime Island (six kilometers in total).
