Best time to visit China
WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO VISIT?
Spanning over different climate zones, China has travel opportunities available all year round. Autumn and Spring are the most popular times to traverse the country, as temperatures are rather agreeable in most of its regions. The winter season is when the northern part of China is covered in snow and the Harbin Snow & Ice festival taking place. The southern, sub-tropical part of the country, which is usually hot and humid, offers perfect weather to travel through. The summer months are a great time to visit the Tibetan Plateau, the north-western region of the Silk Road, and the northern territories along the Russian and Mongolian borders.
WHAT SORT OF WEATHER SHOULD I EXPECT?
Two factors make the answer to this simple question quite complicated. First, global climate changes make the weather increasingly tricky to predict nowadays. Secondly, due to its vast territory, almost every region of the country features different climatic characteristics. While the areas closer to the sea, especially the large eastern cities, are generally warm and humid, the uplands of the Tibetan plateau are typically expected to be cold and dry. The southern regions are characterized by frequent rains, befit for a subtropical zone, whereas the north tends to be cold and harsh for much of the year, but is very pleasant during summertime.
No matter in which part of the country you travel, it is possible to encounter 3-4 seasons in a day. It might be hot during the day, rainy in the afternoon, and cool in the evening. That is why we recommend travelers to wear multiple layers with short clothing underneath, and on top of it, warmer clothes, and even a light coat at hand. We also recommend carrying a light raincoat in your day pack. As each trip has its own traits, we advise travelers to check the typical weather for each region in that period and pack appropriately. Of course, you are always welcome to contact us with any questions regarding these matters.
