Can Northeast China Tourism Replace Japan and Korea?

Nature scenery, cultural landscapes, shopping consumption, etc., which typical tourism demands can be substituted, and which cannot be substituted. It is best to provide specific examples, such as: Visiting Akihabara for Japanese anime cannot be substituted, while skiing in the snowy landscapes of the Northeast can be substituted in many places.

Travel Comparison: Korea, Japan, and Northeast China

South Korea doesn’t offer much, unless you are looking to broaden your horizons or are into celebrity culture, like following Zhang Yuan Ying.

However, visiting Yanbian in China might be a better choice.

At the very least, communication won’t be an issue, and the travel distance is manageable. You could also visit Changbai Mountain and Jilin City to see the rime ice.

In terms of cuisine, Yanbian’s food might even be more suited to Chinese tastes than South Korean cuisine.

Japan, on the other hand, is harder to replace.

Not just Northeast China, but no other region in China can really substitute for Japan.

After all, Japan has its own unique characteristics. It’s not a small country, with abundant travel resources and the added appeal of its anime culture. It’s hard to find a substitute for that…

One could argue that if you’re interested in skiing, the experience within China might be better than in Japan.

But for everything else, there’s really no comparison…

Note that when I say Japan can’t be replaced, I’m not implying Japan is superior, but rather that it’s uniquely distinct.

For example, the landscapes of Africa and the tourist attractions in South America can’t be replaced by Northeast China either.

Does that make sense?

Also, remember, the experiences in Japan and Korea can’t be replaced by those in Northeast China either.

Travel Comparison: Harbin vs. Japan and Korea

Japan and Korea have their own styles, just as Harbin has its own heritage.

The choice of travel destination is in the hands of the traveler, and it’s completely justified for them to go wherever they wish.

However, I’ve seen some responses claiming that “Harbin’s tourism is just hyped, while Japan and Korea represent solid tourism strength.”

To this, I would first suggest that Japan and Korea try creating an Ice and Snow World that’s one-third the scale of Harbin’s.

Then, they should aim to be recognized as a UNESCO City of Music.

Furthermore, they need to be able to host millions of visitors in a short period while ensuring adequate supply of resources and infrastructure.

Only after achieving these can they start boasting about their so-called solid strength in comparison to Harbin.

Some people like to compare the expensive travel costs in Japan and Korea, averaging tens of thousands per person, with Harbin’s more affordable average of three thousand.

This creates a misleading comparison and a shift in concept.

Shouldn’t a real comparison be about the value for money, comparing what you get for the same expenditure or what it costs for the same level of enjoyment?

In one’s own backyard lies a treasure trove, yet one stoops to pick up pennies.

Oil, timber, crops, minerals, steel, various heavy industries, and military industries—all monopolized by state-owned enterprises, leaving no profits for the Northeast.

Why can’t we benefit and pick up the pennies?

Open up the Northeast, let it develop on its own. Remove high taxes, land restrictions, and various state-owned enterprises that exploit Northeastern resources without giving back. In three years, the Northeast can prosper.

I hope Harbin can seize this opportunity.

The development of the tourism industry cannot rely on short-term popularity, but rather on its own solid strength built up over the long term.

Otherwise, once the popularity fades, the true nature will be revealed.

In addition, I think that tourism in the Northeast doesn’t necessarily have to be in winter. Actually, the autumn in the Northeast is quite beautiful (I haven’t been there in spring or summer).

What does “ping ti” mean? Is it a subtle way of criticizing someone?

Why do Northeast China’s tourism resources seem to be just as good as Japan and South Korea’s? The scenery, cuisine, and culture in Northeast China are so vast and wonderful.

Except for similar latitudes, everything else is different. If you want to experience culture and cuisine, then go find what you personally enjoy. If you’re looking to play in the snow and ice, you don’t need to go abroad for that trouble.

If we can silence those unscrupulous media outlets, Northeast China tourism can at least replace 90% of Japanese and Korean tourism.

Unable to replace.

I have been to Tokyo and Seoul.

Although Northeast China has kimchi, it does not have the US military. So, South Korea wins.

Northeast China has no nuclear pollution, is not lacking in morals, and does not have the US Marine Corps. So, Japan wins.

Northeast China is part of a sovereign country, Japan and South Korea?!

People from Northeast China are not dogs of the United States.

You can experience the local culture of South Korea and enjoy Korean-style seafood when you visit South Korea… But ever since the small days, the nuclear-contaminated water, looking at seafood, often comes with a sense of disgust…

If we’re talking purely about food, going to Yanji is quite nice. Visiting South Korea is mainly to broaden your horizons. When it comes to communicating with them, to be honest, many times, we can’t really connect.

Of course, you can.

People who are currently traveling are mostly within the system, and the Northeast service system has a lot of experience, making it the best choice for domestic system-based tourism.

The current promotion is also aimed at letting those within the system who want to travel know that there is still this great place.

Certainly not… The differences between foreign countries and China are significant. Speaking of South Korea and Japan, they are both Northeast Asian countries like us, but the cultural differences are immense.

While I hope everyone will come to Northeast China for consumption, it’s undeniable that we are different. Northeast China cannot replace Japan and Korea. However, I can confidently say that when it comes to the cost-effectiveness of Northeast China tourism, we definitely don’t lose out to Japan and Korea. We also have our own exciting attractions and excellent scenery.

Unable to. At most, replace Hokkaido.

The subtropical scenery of Ryukyu, what can you use to replace it?

I want to visit Japan to see the exhibition of evidence of war crimes committed by Unit 731. Is it possible?

Is it okay to go to South Korea to learn how to steal someone else’s culture?

Japan is worth a visit, as is South Korea…

Respect and best wishes.

Can’t be replaced.

As the saying goes, “Investment doesn’t go beyond the Shanhaiguan Pass.” This is because there are too many entrepreneurs in the northeast who have been bullied, deceived, and exploited. Wealthy and powerful entrepreneurs dare not go to the northeast. Can you, an ordinary person with a few thousand yuan, pretend to be a big shot there?

Unable to replace, You can’t find a Korean/Japanese-speaking atmosphere in the Northeast, and there is no “Shinmai Maou no Testament” in the Northeast.

Excluding the humanities field,

Choosing South Korea as a substitute can….

Because South Korea, indeed, doesn’t have much significance.

Substituting for Japan is a bit challenging because the main purpose of going to Japan is to experience its culture.

Early flattening

The coverage rate of East Three’s Japan-Korea alliance is 80%.

However, there are restrictions on foreign trade agreements, such as cranberries.


When traveling abroad, besides the scenery and shopping, the most important thing is a sense of alienation, cultural alienation, interpersonal alienation, or the surprise of finding a trace of familiarity and warmth in the default alienation.

And the Northeast…
