We recommend you time your visit with the type of weather you prefer and what you want to see.
During spring (April to May) and autumn (September to October), you can expect temperatures between 10-23°C so it’s best to bring layers. This is the most popular time to enjoy a tour of China with limited rainfall and comfortable conditions. You should however avoid the Chinese Spring Festival (Chinese New Year) and Golden Week at the beginning of October as most shops and some tourist attractions are closed and transport is busy.
In summer from June to the end of August, the weather can be extremely hot and humid with temperatures well above 30°C. However, summer also marks the rainy season, so we recommend a light raincoat and umbrella.
If you’re looking for more affordable prices, then a tour of China during winter should be considered, however be mindful that it can be very cold, especially in the northern part of the country and you might even see snow.
